Butler gets Mount off the hook

It took until the final college basketball game of the season. But that dismal shooting performance in Blacksburg won't go down as the worst 2 point shooting percentage game of the season. Instead, Butler outdid outshot now has that distinction. The Mount, as you may painfully recall, was 4-for-36 from inside the arc that afternoon. That's 11.1% for the mathematically challenged. Up until tonight that was the worst 2 point shooting performance of the year. But Butler's 3-of-31 (9.6%) misery takes that away.

Thanks to Ken Pomeroy for the stat.

And just remember a team that went 9-9 in the Big East just won the national title.
