TOURNEY WATCH: 4/4/2010

I think we all can stop questioning Butler's legitimacy at this point. You don't reach the national championship game by accident.

The Bulldogs have defeated five Sweet Sixteen teams this season. If they beat Duke, it'll be six. That's simply phenomenal.

I hope the Butler fans soak up every minute of this, because when it's all done, win or lose Monday night, they'll probably have a new coach and lose Gordon Hayward to the NBA. This is a run for the ages.
