CBK 99 43 NCAA Tournament highlights for new Big East Conference 31643795 Butler does it -- again! Butler+does+it+--+again%21 CBK

This wasn’t quite “Hoosiers,” but the Bulldogs created their own Indiana magic. In both 2010 and ’11, Butler, guided by coach Brad Stevens, the Bulldogs won five consecutive games and made it to the NCAA final. The second visit provided the ultimate heartbreak as Gordon Hayward’s prayer wasn’t answered in the final seconds of a two-point loss to Duke.

Paul Silas didn’t grab every rebound for the Bluejays in a 1964 opening-round win over Oklahoma City, it just seemed he did. The bruising, 6-8 forward snagged 27 rebounds and scored 15 points as Creighton posted an 11-point victory.

Patrick Ewing (right) led the Hoyas and John Thompson coached them as they throttled Phi Slamma Jamma and Houston for the 1984 title. Ewing had a great supporting cast, including Reggie Williams, David Wingate and Freddie Brown, who found redemption two years after an errant pass cost the Hoyas a shot at a title against North Carolina.

The story behind the Providence Friars’ 1987 run to the Final Four was bittersweet. They were a determined group, led by point guard Billy Donovan, and were playing for head coach Rick Pitino and his family, who had seen their infant son Daniel pass away that season at the age of six months.
