Best bet on the Tube

Butler has been the team to beat so far at the Maui Invitational, and the Bulldogs kept it up in a rout of ninth-ranked North Carolina on Tuesday. The Tar Heels, the only ranked team in the eight-team Maui field, never led and had by far its worst half of the season – making eight shots and managing 18 points in the first half – in an 82-71 loss to Butler, which led by 17 at halftime and held off several UNC surges in the second half. The Bulldogs will face Illinois in tonight’s championship game ( 7, ESPN). The Illini won 84-61 to end the Cinderella run of host school Chaminade, which routed Texas on Monday night.
