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.

UConn star player Kemba Walker scored 11 of his 16 points in the second half to lead the Huskies to a 67-59 win over Cincinnati.

Walker’s scoring binge allowed UConn to pull away and win the game.

UConn is 21-7, 9-7 and UC falls to 22-7, 9-7.

The University of Connecticut men’s basketball program is 7-0, but critics would say that they haven’t beat anybody which seems to be true.

Four of the Huskies wins are against teams from the American East Conference: Stony Brook, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maryland-Baltimore County who is 0-7.

Connecticut beat UM-Baltimore County 94-61 as Kemba Walker scored 24 points, 13 rebounds and 10 assists for his first career triple-double in a game played in Hartford, Connecticut.

With the lopsided win, Huskies coach Jim Calhoun tied former Mount St. Mary’s coach Jim Phelan for sixth place on the career wins list with 830.

Walker, who is the nation’s leading scorer with a 30-point scoring average, became the 45th UConn player to score 1,000 career points.

The Huskies are now 7-0.
