The Bulldogs have appeared in the NCAA Tournament more than 10 times over the course of the program's history. The Bulldogs
have consistently made it to March Madness as of late, and had two of the most famous Cinderella runs in the tournament in
recent memory in consecutive seasons in 2010 and 2011. The Bulldogs made it to the championship game both of those years,
but were unable to emerge victorious each time. Still, Butler has proven that it is becoming a national power in the college
basketball ranks. Butler has been able to win more than 1400 basketball games over the years, but the team is still seeing
its first National Championship, and fans are hoping that this is the year they change that.

you'll see why college basketball is one of the most popular sports in the country. And even though the pros are great to
watch too, college athletics is something special because it's just team pride on the line, providing a thrilling experience
filled to the brim with moments that you'll be talking about a long time after it's all over. The Big East is one of the top
conferences in college basketball and always has a multitude of teams heading to the NCAA Tournament come the end of the regular
season. Featuring teams like DePaul, Marquette, Georgetown and more, this is a conference that routinely boasts some of the
powerhouses in the country, providing a schedule loaded with top matchups for the Bulldogs each and every year.
Bulldogs Basketball Trivia
When the Bulldogs narrowly lost in the National Championship game to Duke, which player
nearly won the game for Butler will a half-court shot that almost went in at the buzzer?
The answer is Gordon Hayward,
who was Butler's star player that season. Hayward's shot banked off the backboard and almost went in. Had it made it through
the net, the shot would have likely gone down as the most famous shot in the history of the NCAA tournament. Hayward now plays
for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association and is blooming into a star player. The Jazz awarded him with a hefty
contract this NBA offseason, proving their dedication to this young talent.
