Good win. Not the prettiest game, and plenty of mistakes, but the players were able to offset a lot of it through pure hustle and toughness. They did more "good" things last night then they have in just about any BE game this year. Let's be honest, X, too, is a little down this year, but welcome to college basketball 2018 - 2019. I think this game illustrates why some of us have been so frustrated and critical over the course of the season. I (and others) knew that while we didn't possess the best talent, there was certainly enough on this roster to have a pretty solid season in a "down" season in the BE, and in college basketball over all. Top half in the league and a Tournament bid at the minimum. I feel a little sorry for the entire team because they are better than their record and their tournament fate. One good win doesn't give Jordan and the staff a pass on the season. This type of play, and even better, should have be the norm and not the exception. For the most part I've held back my criticism of individual players this season because I never thought they were placed in the best possible position to win. Not their fault, for the most part. The wrong offense and defense for the talents on the roster. I still don't buy in to the Jordan is young and inexperienced excuses because he is neither. It's sad because he really is such a nice guy, a Butler man, and everyone likes him, as evidenced by the player comments. We all want him to succeed, but Butler basketball is much bigger than just one person. And 16 - 14 and hovering around last place in the BE just isn't acceptable from any coach, including Jordan. Jordan will get another shot to show us something because he is not going anywhere. Pretty much agreed upon by all that he is going to have a better roster next year, and a whole off season to coach and groom some players (Brunk, Thompson...we have to stop playing 4 on 5...., et al) and work on their weaknesses that obviously wasn't done this past off season. Excuses will be even thinner in 2019 - 2020. Hope he gets some help on the staff or has an epiphany or whatever it takes because it sucks not having real Butler basketball over the course of the winter. And yes "excuse divas", we are indeed spoiled!!!!
