The Bulldogs are back in the national title game, not as lovable underdogs but as a team intent on making up for last year's heartbreak after Butler's 70-62 victory over VCU on Saturday night that put the Bulldogs back in the national title game.

Shelvin Mack scored 24 points, Zach Hahn came up big off the bench and the Bulldogs shut VCU down with their trademark unforgiving defense. The eighth-seeded Bulldogs (28-9) will face the winner of Kentucky-Connecticut on Monday night, the first time since Duke in 1991 that the runner-up has returned to play for the championship.
