The Mans Cave App

The Mans Cave

The Mans Cave was a concept originated long before my time. The men in my family have always had their place of solitude where men could be men and there was no questioning. I now live the city life which means the man cave has been greatly reduced in size. That brought me to create an internet based man cave where all men can join in. Whether geek, gamer, jock, fitness, brewer, BBQ-er, or just looking for a place to read about manly news, you will find a home in the Man Cave

UConn Wins NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament!

Last night was the conclusion of March Madness, with the finals matchup between UConn and Butler. This was the matchup of red hot UConn vs. underdog but experienced Butler, who was making their 2nd consecutive appearance in the national championship game (they lost last year to Duke 61-59). Kemba Walker, the star guard for UConn, earned the Most Outstanding Player award while accounting for an obscene 45% of his team's points throughout the tournament! With his dominant performance starting with the Big East tournament all the way to last night's game, Walker has cemented his place as one of the best players in March Madness history. Also contributing to UConn's title was freshman swingman Jeremy Lamb (12 2nd half points) and sophomore big man Alex Oriakhi (11 points, 11 rebounds, 4 blocks, and the MVP according to Dywane Wade's Twitter. Additionally, Jim Calhoun became just the 5th coach (and the oldest) to win 3 national championships, joining legendary coaches John Wooden, Bob Knight, Adolph Rupp, and Mike Krzyzewski.

Not to be forgotten was Butler's incredible run to the championship game as well. Seemingly written off this year as a one-year-wonder with the departure of star player Gordon Hayward (1st round- 9th overall pick of the Utah Jazz), Butler returned to the finals behind the strong play of Matt Howard and Shelvin Mack. Unfortunately for Butler, they turned in the worst shooting performance in finals history, hitting only 18.8% of their shots, and shooting 57.1% from the line. Although they will be losing 5 players to graduation, Butler is in good hands with one of the brightest stars in coach Brad Stevens (he's only 34 years old!) who signed a 12 year contract extension after last year's tournament run.

All in all, it was one of the most exciting March Madness tournaments ever with the number of upsets and buzzer beaters. Congratulations to UConn on a well deserved victory!
