    Kind of an ugly game. Hopefully shaking some stuff out before next week. Biggest takeaway personally: I keep wanting to compare Nze to someone else from Butler's past (Wideman usually), but dang if he's not already carved out a name for himself in just a handful of games. Completely exceeding expectations on the offensive end and living up to my most optimistic expectations on defense.

    Haha that dunk goes. Would have been HILARIOUS if that Kamar 3 had put Butler up 19...

    Instead, we all lose either way.

    Dawgs played much better in the second half. 5-0 got to love it

    Gotta get better on the offensive end, but that team wasn’t bad. Had some good athletes on the perimeter so the Dawgs didn’t have a lot of easy-bucket offensive possessions.

    Gonna need some more firepower going forward, need more of a punch from McD and Tucker. AT is rock solid but you can see sometimes out there that his lack of shooting really muddles things up spacing wise. Liked what Battle brought tonight.

    The defense continues to be outstanding. The guards were just awesome, hounding their guys every possession. Very few lapses. Guys 1-10 seem connected on that end, really a sight to see.

    Gonna need a good effort to beat Mizzou in KC!

    McD and Tucker had rough nights shooting for the most part. They are needed in the games upcoming. Hopefully m wheel is ok and he's ready to roll. Tuck just needs more consistent run. I find it interesting he gets in and yanked all the time early. Yet he is always in there the final few minutes. He was mostly off tonight. I think though sometimes you need to just swallow the medicine and see if he can get in a rhythm. His defense wasn't that bad tonight.

    Baldwin was off the charts for the most part. Hitting from deep and breaking down defenders.

    I love Nze. AND, if Golden can hit even one of those 3s consistently...that means so much to this offense. It will open up everything.

    Defensively...another great performance. This team really locks in on that end.

    Ugly first half and poor shooting from three. Impressed with defense. Glad Sean is OK. Again he needs to shoot more. Love for us to take four of the next seven.

    I’ll take a bad shooting night vs More Head! Lol
    Seriously let’s just be glad we aren’t injured and 5-0 heading to KC!
    Battles energy was great again

    Just got home and starting work on my takeaways. I'll have that article out in the morning. (Also, with regard to the HoF Classic, I'm planning on doing just one Butler preview for the entire event and then takeaways from both games. Thoughts?)

    Takeaways are complete and scheduled to publish at 7:30 am ET. (There is one sentence that I will update when stats fully update tomorrow morning but it's ready to go :) )

    I was in front of them all night. I'm convinced they're really X fans. Maybe Cubs fans in the summer time? All 12 of them tried their best to take the place over.

    I thought Tucker was quite effective in helping break the press late in the 2nd half.

    Like a lot of people, I'm a Battle fan.

    That was why he was in there plus for foul shooting.

    This was a hard game to fully digest. Nice defensive effort by both teams for the most part. BU did nice job of taking care of the ball in the 2nd half. MH State was very quick and had some active hands. BU had to adapt to some small ball. A clunker, but add another to the win column. Time to get ready for the meaty part of the schedule.

    20 second half points was nice to see. I started having flashbacks to last year during the first half, though. They seemed disinterested at times on D, leading to some wide open threes. Also looked sloppy with the ball in first half.

    When they want to play D, like they did in the second half, man, they are fun to watch. I hope that was a wake up call, because they won’t be able to afford to take possessions off the rest of the way.
