Sweet again: Butler beats MTSU, gets back to NCAA regionals

MILWAUKEE (AP) Butler coach Chris Holtmann had heard enough about Middle Tennessee.

The Blue Raiders were a trendy mid-major pick this year to bust NCAA Tournament brackets, a role Butler once assumed with regularity.

This time, the Bulldogs played the role of college basketball Goliath, and they brought Middle Tennessee's feel-good story to a close.
