Halftime: Duke 33 – Butler 32

Wow what a first half from Indianapolis!

Here are some quick observations as we await the seconf half of tonight’s championship game:

-I’m very impressed with Butler’s ability to hang in there with Duke despite the fact that they started out REALLY cold. They have a 10 to 3 advantage on the offensive glass thus far.

-Avery Jukes, who averages 2.4 ppg, leads all scorers at the half with 10. I’m looking for Butler to try to get Gordon Hayward more involved. He has been efficient in grabbing 7 first half rebounds. But he averages 15.6 a game and he’s got to score some more points for Butler to have a shot. 

-Duke’s big three of Smith, Singler, and Scheyer looks comfortable and balanced. They have combined for 26 points. If Smith and Scheyer get hot from beyond the arc it could be the difference in the second half
