It's a great time to get last-minute NCAA Championship Game predictions in, and Washington head coach Lorenzo Romar took time out of his busy schedule to drop some knowledge on the world. Romar, speaking at his end of the year press conference, made his own prediction for Monday night's NCAA Tournament Championship between the Butler Bulldogs and Connecticut Huskies.
You'd think Romar would stick with Connecticut, right? After all, Jim Calhoun's squad shares a mascot with Washington and we all know choosing by mascot is the trendy way to make picks. But Romar went with a pick that's been gaining momentum in the time following the Final Four: Butler.
It appears Romar roots for the underdog.
Fun picks aside, we'll be back with previews of both teams and Monday night's game in our NCAA Championship Game StoryStream. Check back with us throughout the day for more on the matchup as we get geared up for the final game of the 2011 NCAA Tournament.
