    Butler and DePaul aren't that different. Same conference record. Butler has played a much tougher non-con and has a one-game-better overall record, but DePaul has won three Big East road games already - not something this Butler team can say. This game will not be a gimme.

    Here is a quick little rundown of my relevant content heading into this matchup (if you are interested). Thanks!

    Keys to success against DePaul (LINK): As always, this is my preview piece for this matchup. It is only on one page rather than a slideshow (my brother came to visit this weekend so I was behind on writing) but it is still the same usual length and level of detail (I think lol). Can't wait to be back in Hinkle tonight!

    Bracketology (LINK): Butler is a No. 12 seed and the last team in my projected field at this time (and I keep bias out of my fields as much as possible to replicate the committee). With the way that bubble teams have played as of late (aka lose everything possible, basically), any win makes a huge difference. Next update of my field will come out on Tuesday.

    Complete Bubble Watch (LINK): If you don't want to click (totally understandable...although it's how I get paid hahaha), here is what I said about Butler, who is still in my "double the deodorant" section. This piece analyzes basically each team in the running for an at-large bid, aside from those I deem to be "locks". It comes out every Friday.

    Butler Bulldogs (14-11, 5-7 BE)

    NET: 53 | KPI: 45 | SOR: 70 | BPI: 49 | KP: 54 | Sag: 44
    Q1: 1-7 | Q2: 6-3 | Q3: 4-1 | Q4: 3-0
    Butler posted a relatively neutral week on the whole by splitting their road matchups with Georgetown and St. John’s (in OT). Because of this, the Dawgs remain right on the Big Dance cutline as one of either the last teams in or the first teams out. From a resume perspective, Butler boasts a fairly strong record in Q2/3/4 games but their lack of quality wins is a big issue. Thankfully, the Dawgs have a reasonably favorable schedule remaining for their situation. Of their final six games, four of them are quite winnable and they also will have road opportunities against Marquette and Villanova. There is work to be done but chances available. Additionally, with the way the quadrants are set up, Butler fans should start rooting for Georgetown as well. Current seed projection: No. 12 (Last Four In).

    * I just clicked the link for you a couple times. Ha.

    Going to GM today. They better not sleep on DePaul. They have some real nice pieces. When is the last time you said that?

    Lukas, really like reading your stuff. One very minor gripe... Any chance when referring to Butler you could just say "Butler" rather than "Butler basketball"?

    Since “Butler Basketball” is my focus keyword for search engine ranking, I am supposed to use it occasionally during the piece to increase the piece’s relevance on search engines. (And due to the fact that the word “butler” doesn’t always refer to our team, I need to include basketball in the keyword) I can trim down that usage, though. Thanks for the kind words and the critique.

    Good to know it takes more than a medical degree to get it to work.

    Willis, thanks for taking one for the team. Now if you put real cash dollar bet down on that prediction, it would be a lock for a Dawg victory. :)

    DePaul is 3-0 @ SH, @ X, & @ STJ. Butler is 0-3 in those road games.
