Members of the Connecticut Huskies men’s basketball team celebrate after their national championship win over Butler, on April 4, in Houston, Texas.

The rims were tight, the shots weren’t falling and points were at a premium — surely one of the ugliest championships played on college basketball’s biggest stage.

Ah, but for Kemba Walker and UConn, the final score was a thing of beauty.

In a game that featured 40 minutes of guts and grit, Connecticut made Butler look like the underdog it really was, winning the NCAA men’s title Monday night with an old-fashioned, grinding, 53-41 beatdown of the Bulldogs. The rims were tight, the shots weren’t falling and points were at a premium — surely one of the ugliest championships played on college basketball’s biggest stage.
