    This team is the 2020 of Butler teams.

    Now it’s become pretty clear why Bolden was in Frank Martin’s doghouse. Very lazy defender and offers nothing else on offense other than just a streaky shooter. Nze is addicted to turning the ball over. Mulloy wouldn’t start at my hometown’s community college. *deep breath* But I said I wouldn’t get mad when this inevitably happened this year. So let’s just continue to grow, and accept that this team, right now, isn’t a very good one. With time, I think we’ve got something.

    Can I offer a respectful disagreement? I feel like they did take some shots that they've shown they can make. If they make those, then we're not complaining about offense. Things look easier when the ball goes in. Some of these misses have driven me insane, but others are just...well, you gotta take and make wide open threes.

    This. I’m a big Zags fan too. When Mark Few lost in 2013 as a 1-seed, he realized how great he was on O but blew dick on D. He committed to it.

    His 2017 team was a good D team. Made the final game. Since then he has kept his amazing O but elevated the D. He realized the deficiency and got better.

    Lavall needs to do the same. Last year it worked Bc Kamar could bail the team out with a bucket. Not this year.

    I have no stats to back this up, but Nze has to be one of the worst Senior starters on a major CBB team. He is AWFUL. Turnover waiting to happen EVERY time he touches it. How is there no one on the sidelines that's willing to tell him to STOP DRIBBLING THE DAMN BALL.

    It's something in the air on the east coast, it totally screws us up. We would kick their ass if this were played in the midwest. Why I love the Big East Conference

    The clanking is hard to take.

    Of course. I agree that we've missed some good, open looks. I'm most annoyed with continued turnovers where we just do the same thing over and over and expect the same result. Dribbling into traffic down low and weakly putting layups up against much larger defenders. And it's discouraging that those behaviors haven't been stamped out by the staff.

    This small lineup is not working just like it didn't work last week. What is LJ watching?

    Chuck Harris going from BE Freshman of the Week to absolutely shellshocked. Life as a freshman!

    I would prefer Golden and Nze just rebound and play defense. Let the freshmen and transfer put up the shots.

    Nze has completely mailed it in. Shows a lot about his character and leadership, not to mention his performance has been absolute garbage this year

    Well, at least it's not as bad as the beating we took at Florida after the ugly sweater Christmas party.

    What pisses me off is that we played so much better and with much more poise/movement/defensive commitment against teams like Nova and IU...yet this is just an egg lay. No nights off in this conference. The decision making has just been awful.
