5 teams who scored more points in a championship game than Butler

1.Both the Philadelphia Warriors and the Chicago Stags in every single game of the 1947 Basketball Association of America Finals, aka the first ever NBA Finals (the worst game was a 75-72 Chicago win in Game 3. Oh and this was all SIX YEARS before the shot clock was invented.)

2.Both the Houston Comets and the New York Liberty in the 1997 WNBA Championship game, the first ever title game for the league

3.Both Indiana and the University of Kansas in the 1940 NCAA Championship game, the second one ever (Indiana won 60-42)

4.The University of Oregon when it won the first ever NCAA Tournament Championship game in 1939 against Ohio State (Ohio State scored 33 points, which is still more than either Butler or Connecticut scored in the first half on Monday night)

5.Both teams in this year’s 2011 NCAA Tournament women’s Championship game (Texas A&M 76, Notre Dame 70)
