    These guys are giving the '84 UK team a run for their money on terrible FG %.

    Great shot by Mack. His only two makes are three pointers.

    Butler made 6 shots all half and LEAD. They're shooting 22% for the half. Fortunately, they're playing solid defense and UConn is missing open shots, and the Huskies are only shooting 29%.

    Down 3 at the half, a little different than what they had going for them 2 nights ago. Also have a few guys with 2 fouls.

    Agree with Stevens. Both teams guarding "hard" is the reason for the offensive woes of both teams. Should be a great second half. Foul trouble could be UCONN's achilles down the stretch.

    Beginning to believe UConn really does have some of the worst/pathetic fan bases in the nation.

    U Conn has a huge size advantage that they need to take better advantage of. Okwandu looks like King Kong running around out there. If I am Butler, I do what UK should have done more of Saturday, keep hammering it inside. Run the offense, be patient till you get a decent look and punch it inside. With the foul trouble U Conn is in, keep going at them. For U Conn, Walker needs to take a couple threes. Butler is giving him the three and he isn't taking it. If Walker and Lamb hit a couple threes early, Butler will be in big trouble. That will open things up all around. This game is ugly but great defense does that. That is why UK looked ugly Saturday shooting the ball. U Conn's interior defense is just that tough. There are no easy shots for either team in this one.

    Unlike most teams that Butler plays, UCONN likes this style as well.
