Mar 30, 2011, 7:50 PM EDT

If Butler and Kentucky meet in Monday’s championship game, we’re assured a close game – if their tournament results are any indication.

From the AP: Schools that have reached the Final Four with the smallest cumulative margin of victory, since 1985 when all teams played four games to reach the Final Four:

Butler (2011) 13
Michigan State (2010) 13 lost Semifinal
Arkansas (1995) 15 lost Final
Memphis (1985) 17 lost Semifinal
LSU (1986) 17 lost Semifinal
Arizona (1997) 19 Champion
Kentucky (2011) 19
