    Shouldn't our player, especially a point guard arrive on campus with the skills to play both offense and defense? Especially at a Big East school. Development should not include learning how to shoot.

    If it makes anyone feel better, Dayton is hanging with Virginia in the first half.

    If you don’t think Aaron Thompson should be playing, you should just log off and delete your account.

    I think he definitely should be playing, but when he is playing Kamar shouldn't be running the point.

    Oh I don’t know, maybe the fact that he and Kamar have to set the tone on every defensive possession for Butler to compete on that end of the court. The front court is sub par defensively, and replacing Thompson with Tucker would only further complicate matters.

    And Baldwin was running the point last night as much as he was because Thompson wasn’t able to stay in the game (partly on him, but I thought some of the calls were questionable). I don’t believe that is by design, I think we’d like to see Kamar off the ball at times as well. I might be wrong on that though. But without Thompson out there, the entire offense falls on Kamar’s shoulders and we saw last night how that can go south fast.

    Butler loses one game and this board implodes on itself and each other. Wow.

    Granted, this was a game that Butler should have won. But I recall not too far in the past when Butler was in the HL and actually was the underdog and showed moxie in games like this. Shoe on other foot now.

    Have we grown too accustomed to the success?

    Let the snark fly!!!

    I didn't say he shouldn't play. What I'm seeing is KB is the point guard and AT is the shooting guard with PJ at the three. If AT as a shooting guard makes sense to you then you should just log off and delete your account. AT should be the back up point guard to KB.

    Can anyone explain to me how a kid can go all the way thru high school and get a high major scholarship yet has never learned how to shoot a decent jump shot? I mean what did they do with a basketball in their drive way? Practice guarding the pole all the time.

    The fact you want to talk about one game, one result, says everything.

    Keep doing you.

    Let's move on to the next game. This is pointless. Let's see what happens vs MTSU

    If we won out tonight and tomorrow against Florida, we’ll salvage a 2-1 record which many were expecting, hoping for albeit against better competition. That’s what we need to do. Get back to the mainland and work through the kinks.

    If they do that I'll be happy with the trip. It will be kind of meh, but I'd have to admit it could be a lot worse. 1-2 with losses against Virginia and Wisconsin/Florida/Oklahoma was probably the most likely outcome, and this would certainly beat that. But Butler will be underdogs against Florida. Let's avoid complete disaster by taking care of business tonight and then worry about Florida in 2 hours.

    One entry pass to the post so far. It's three on five out there with Thompson.

    I have been watching closely tonight, and their offense looks so much better when Thompson is running it.
