UConn/Butler: This Game Was Downright Offensive (Or Defensive I Guess)

We’ll hear about Butler’s historically poor shooting in this game, but UConn shot historically bad also.  UConn had the worst field goal percentage for a winner of the national title game since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in 1985.  There have been three other under .400 FG% games since 1985: Arkansas ’94, a poor shooting, but faced paced physical team; Kentucky ’96, Antoine Walker was a leader on that team, need I say more; and Arizona ’97,  a very perimeter oriented team.

I’d like to acknowledge where I found the hard-to-find pre-2002 box scores:
