Neither UConn or Butler lit up the scoreboard, shot the ball well or played a perfect game, but the team that played the best defense, won the game.

The Huskies won 53-41 in Reliant Stadium in Houston, Texas, one of the worst national championship game’s of all-time.

Kemba Walker finished with 16 points for the Huskies (32-9), who won their 11th straight game since closing the regular season with a 9-9 Big East record that no one thought they’d even get past the first round of the tournament.

UConn head coach Jim Calhoun at 68-years-old, became the oldest coach to win the national championship and joined the likes of John Wooden, Adolph Rupp, Mike Krzyzewski and Bob Knight as only the fifth coach to win three NCAA titles.

Connecticut using their height and shot-blocking ability, intimidated Butler into missing several inside shots. They outscored the Bulldogs (28-10) 26-2 in the paint. Butler, from the mid-major conference, The Horizon League, were playing in their second straight title game, went a whopping 13 minutes, 26 seconds in the second half making just one field goal. Kind of mind-boggling for a good shooting, perimeter team.

Before their shooting went by the wayside, Butler was leading 25-19 and it became an insurmountable deficit of 41-28.
