NCAA Final Four West Virginia Duke Basketball

INDIANAPOLIS — Every good Hollywood film needs an underdog and a villain.

With Butler and Duke playing each other, Monday’s national title game has all the makings of a blockbuster.

Tiny Butler (33-4) is one victory away from finishing off its version of “Hoosiers,” taking down some of college basketball’s biggest names in its magical run. But it hasn’t faced a team quite like Duke (34-5), three-time national champions whose name is all over the NCAA tournament record book — and who fans just love to hate.

This is Butler’s first appearance in the title game, the 10th for Duke.
