NEW YORK (AP) – Butler couldn’t stay in it until the end this time, and television ratings were down for the national championship game.

Connecticut’s defense-dominated 53-41 win Monday on CBS earned an 11.7 fast national rating and 18 share.

That’s down 18 percent from last year’s Duke-Butler final, when the underdog Bulldogs had
a chance to win it at the buzzer.

The entire tournament, with every game televised nationally for the first time, averaged a 6.4/14, up seven percent from last season.

Ratings represent the percentage of all households with televisions tuned into a program.

Shares represent the percentage of all homes with TVs in use at the time.
