Southeast Region: Butler Bulldogs (8) vs. Old Dominion Monarchs (9) Thurs. March 17, 2011 12:40 p.m. EST

Last season the Butler Bulldogs (8) were able to pull off the miracle as they defied the odds all year long to reach the NCAA Tournament and pave the way all the way up the National Championship game. Even though Butler’s run the fin the championship game was historic, the Bulldogs fell a little short of the eventual champion Duke Blue Devils.

Despite being unable to pull off the upset in the National Championship game against Coach K and the Duke Blue Devils, the Butler Bulldogs have become a household name and a serious force to be reckoned with in college basketball. This season they will be looking to repeat their performance from last season in the NCAA Tournament as they are currently the eighth seed in the Southeast Region.

Even though the Bulldogs may be more concerned about whether or not they will play the Pittsburgh Panthers (1) in the next round, they could have their work cut out for them in their first game of the 2011 NCAA Tournament against the Old Dominion Monarchs (9).

Usually, these games between the eight and nine seeds are extremely close and matchups that tend to come down the wire. Even though the Bulter is the higher seed coming into this this game (8), the Monarchs have been given the edge with a -2 point spread.

In my opinion, the Bulter Bulldogs should pull off the slight upset here and advance to the next round to most likely face off against the Pittsburgh Panthers (1).
