Butler-UConn: Huskies leading big with five minutes left

April 4, 2011 |  8:19 pm

Butler-uconn8_510 Looks like UConn has found the pretty girls (see Charles Barkley, halftime update).

Alex Oriakhi scores from the baseline, UConn ahead, 41-28, and there's no way Butler can hit the 41-point mark in the final 6:58.

Butler's Andrew Smith makes a rebound layup and the crowd goes wild. Huskies, 41-30.

Clark Kellogg: "Unparalled ineptitude." He meant just Butler but it could be the motto for this whole game.

With five minutes left, the only suspense is, how many more layups can Butler miss? It's UConn 46, Butler 32 with five minutes left.
