Butler would prefer not to play a fullcourt game. The Bulldogs are the 270th-slowest team in the country, at 64.6 possessions per game, and 90.4 percent of their offensive possessions this season were halfcourt sets. The fact that they struggled with Wisconsin’s impromptu press in the Sweet 16, letting the Badgers whittle a 20-point lead down to four in the final two minutes, leads one to believe that VCU — a team that presses on made baskets with regularity — will bring the heat on Saturday. Coach Shaka Smart has branded the Rams’ style of play as "Havoc," and as junior guard Bradford Burgess said, "There’s a full court for a reason."

Luke Winn examines the VCU press. Great read if you like X's and O's. Nobody does this stuff better than Winn. Also, watch Shaka take a charge. Look at the hustle!
