    Ive actually wondered about the effect of always practicing on the real floor before. It can’t hurt. The net effect of a real practice facility is surely positive if it gets you better players. But it can’t hurt your shooting to actually practice on the real deal. Would be interesting to know if butler regularly has a greater home vs away shooting differential than teams with a practice facility.

    Had the same thought. Though they don't just use the two Hinkle baskets to practice. I've joked before that they should travel to a high school gym one or twice a week and practice their shooting there. Maybe bring out the measuring tape and have LaVall show the players that its the same dimensions anywhere ;)

    Sounds like an interesting weekend project to at least look at the past few years to see what the difference typically is for Butler teams.

    The Creighton Blue Jays are my favorite college basketball team for today.

    It was very interesting. Hope they do a Butler game like that.

    Creighton is down 50-34 against X at half time and are 5-16 from three.

    Go figure. X wins by 22 and Creighton was off today (including 20 TOs). That Seton Hall game is going to loom large.

    Creighton looked awful today and X bigs had their way.

    If BU can steal one against the Friars it will prove to be a pivotal down the road.

    Should cover Jay’s suit budget for the rest of Big East play this year.

    A good write up about how good the BEast is. I hope the NCAA selection committee reads this article on Selection Sunday.

    One crazy line from the article, "Villanova has five players who average double digits in scoring, and another who averages 9.9." That's crazy to have 6 players averaging double digits in scoring (rounding up for the one). Helps to explain why they are the class of the BEast.

    I didn't look that hard, so there's certainly a chance someone else is doing it too, but I believe Gonzaga is the only team with six double-digit scorers.

    Not discounting Gonzaga in any way, but getting 6 double digit scorers in the WCC is a bit different than getting 6 in the BEast.

    Funny that right after the article about scoring in the BEast, the two games today were low scoring (relative to the rest of the league games).
