NCAA Championship 2010: #1 Duke vs #5 Butler
Monday, April 5, 2010 at 9:21 p.m. ET
The AP reports:
In a sign of how far Butler has come, the Bulldogs (33-4) might have the best NBA prospect on the floor Monday night in Gordon Hayward, a 6-foot-9 forward, who can shoot the 3, guard on the perimeter and play in the middle if he has to. Giving him a run for his money is Duke’s Kyle Singler, who along with Jon Scheyer and Nolan Smith, make up the “Big Three” for the Blue Devils (34-5)— three players who will play at the next level, but not before sticking around college for a while. There are no lottery picks, no “one-and-dones,” on either of these squads, both of whom emphasize “team” over the individual.
Team Stat Leaders:
Points: Gordon Hayward (Butler) 15.6, Jon Scheyer (Duke) 18.3
Rebounds: Gordon Hayward (Butler) 8.2, Brian Zoubek (Duke) 7.7
Assists: Ronald Nored (Butler) 3.6, Jon Scheyer (Duke) 4.8
