Butler will make you sweat

Butler 74 - Florida 71 Overtime

"I feel sick to my stomach. It hurts right now."
- Florida forward Chandler Parsons

It was the second overtime game in the past two days. And Butler proved again that they're no Cinderella. Florida and especially Parsons should be given all due credit. They played an amazing game and hit the shots they were suppose to hit, virtually overwhelming the Bulldogs at times. Butler just would not lie down and die. The Gators were such odds on favorites even the NCAA were prematurely celebrating their potential win. What is the saying about hubris?

In the end Florida became just another victim of Butler's maniacal march toward the Final Four and maybe the National Championship. But it has been a hell of a march to watch.
