NCAA Basketball Championship 2011 Game Time: Butler Vs. UConn

It's finally here. The final game fo the 2011 college basketball season. The NCAA Championship will feature Butler vs. Connecticut. Butler's returning to the championship game after losing to Duke last year and UConn is in the title game on the strength of Kemba Walker.

Tip-off comes at 8:23 p.m. (CT) and Jim Nantz and Clark Kellogg are the announcers along with sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson. The game will be televised on CBS.

UConn is a slight favorite -- three points -- so this is expected to be a close game. The way the 2011 NCAA tournament bracket has gone a close game would be very fitting.

Obviously one of the keys for UConn is Kemba Walker. He's one of, if not the best player in the country so containing him will be important. He averaged 23 points and nearly five assists per game.
