Back in April, I posted my 2010-11 "Super-Early" Top 50 Ranking. Now that the Draft has passed and more recruits have found a home, it's time for an update.
It wasn't pretty but because of their defensive grit and the ability to take advantage of Michigan State mistakes, the Butler Bulldogs find themselves forty minutes away from striking a significant blow for all schools whose operating budgets reside below the "Red Line".
Ranking the Final Four's best by position:
Best Point Guard
#5 Butler Bulldogs
The 2010 Final Four was completed on Sunday with teams led by two of the best coaches around punching their tickets. Michigan State, a team counted out on multiple occasions this season, will make it's sixth trip to the Final Four in the last twelve seasons due to their 70-69 win over Tennessee in the Midwest Region final in St. Louis. In a game that was tight throughout it took a Raymar Morgan free throw with 1.8 seconds remaining to provide the final margin. How did Morgan (13 points, 10 rebounds) get to the line?
#5 Michigan State Spartans
