March Madness 2010:12 UTEP - 5 Butler Upset Update

March Madness 2010 Game Upset Update
12 UTEP vs 5 Butler
West Regional
(latest update at bottom of article)
We picked UTEP for the upset over Butler and so far they aren't letting us down as they are up 33 to 27 over Butler at the half. The UTEP guards have scored a combined 21 points and they outrebounded Butler 20 to 14 in the first half. One negative for UTEP is they are 1 of 9 from beyond the arc.
It is now 37 to 36 UTEP 4 minutes into the second half.
Butler up 5 now as they get a steal and hit the 3 in transition. UTEP needs to regroup.
UTEP is now down 10 as they have gone ice cold from the field and aren't putting up enough defensive pressure.
Butler on a 22 to 4 run to start the second half and clearly UTEP isn't mentally tough, something we missed in the stats and analysis.
