    You know it's bad times when the board is too hung up talking about various debacle scenarios as opposed to a game that tips in less than 24 hours.*

    So here's a thread beginning.

    Go Dawgs.


    *with the obvious exception of the lookalikes thread, which is really what's important here

    Fully expecting to get smacked tomorrow. Haven't felt that way about a Butler team in a long time.....

    Yeah unless they've gotten their issues figured out on defense, Creighton will reign fire from 3 tomorrow. Only hope is the Jays looking ahead to their home matchup with Marquette (a team that's beaten them 5 straight times), but that seems like wishful thinking. Also might help it being an 11 am tip-off for them, but again, feels like I'm looking for reasons to be optimistic that they won't get whooped tomorrow.

    I'm picking out Connor Cashaw as the Creighton nobody who will torch Butler tomorrow. (Frankly, they are a *fantastic* 3 point shooting team, so I had to dig deep here.) He's a Rice transfer who averages 10 mins and 2.5 pts per game. He's a good shooter, but because of limited playing time, has only hit five 3s (on eight attempts) – never more than one per game.

    He will go 4-for-5 tomorrow.

    Ooh.. OOH! Will there be a sportsbook for the game? I've already missed out on lots of imaginary money I would have won on several games. The line is Butler -3.5 right now, I'd love to get in on that (but not so much that I'll find a bookie! :D).

    Nineteen threes from Creighton I can believe. BU score 81 points? Not so much.

    All the Dogs regain their shooting touch, and the D returns. Dogs win by 12.

    Yeah I'd like that. In particular I'd like PJ to find his offensive rhythm again. If we don't get waxed I think it will be due to increased defensive activity, namely from AT and KB. Would love to see @Lukas Harkins 3 keys for this one!

    Through 14 games Creighton is shooting nearly 45 % from 3 as a team making a little over 12 threes per game.

    Waiting to see if LJ has any actual adjustments from the GT game. If not, this one could get ugly early. Agree with others that perimeter defense will be essential today.

    44.8% ranks 3rd nationally behind Lehigh & Virginia Tech. 12.1 made 3s per game ranks 4th nationally behind The Citadel, Winthrop. & Savannah St.

    One of the games included in your rate is non-D1.

    When taking into account when they only faced D1 opponents, Creighton is 4th in terms of percentage (43.2%), and they're 15th in terms of the percentage of their overall points that they score from the 3 point line (41%).
