INDIANAPOLIS – Monday night’s National Championship game will be billed by television and newspaper outlets as a matchup of big school versus little school or even more poetic, David versus Goliath.
Some are even going as far as comparing the matchup to the final game in the movie Hoosiers between the South Bend Central and Hickory.
“I obviously have seen it [Hoosiers],” Brian Zoubek said. “It is such a great story. Obviously, Butler has done a great job and deserves a lot of respect and a lot of support, but I don’t see too many similarities between us and that other team [South Bend Central].”
That is because this is not a battle of David versus Goliath.
Butler is not Cinderella. They reached this point because they are a basketball team that works hard and plays the game the right way. A fairy-godmother didn’t sprinkle any magic pixie dust to help them reach Indianapolis.
“I think they play the game the right way,” Jon Scheyer said. “That is one thing that I am proud to be a part of this Duke team because I feel like we play the right way.”
Duke has reached this point too because they play the game the way it is suppose to be played, for a head coach who demands perfection and execution on both ends of the court. They did not reach the title game because of the accomplishments of previous Duke teams.
