Return of The Mack!

Shelvin Mack and the Butler Bulldogs are returning to the National Title Game for the 2nd straight year.

Butler defeated the cinderella VCU 70-62 saturday night. Shelvin Mack led Butler with 23 points, and Matt Howard added 17 points and 8 tough rebounds.

For Shaka Smart’s VCU Rams the clock has struck midnight. VCU, a team that thrives off of 3 point field goals, struggled from behind the arch. Point guard and tone setter Joey Rodriguez struggled against the stronger Mack, finishing with 3 points and 7 assists. Jamie Skeen led VCU with 27 points.

Butler will now await the winner of the UConn/Kentucky game, and a matchup in monday’s National Title Game.
