    This was an impressive effort today. And, a lot of it was with AT in foul trouble.

    At one point it was any elbow to the face, trying to cut down on the offensive players swinging elbows. I'm pretty sure they backed off that rule, and I don't think this would apply anyways.

    Golden didn't record anything other than 2 minutes.

    Such a big win for so many reasons, but most importantly this a mental toughness win. I feel like a lot of our recent struggles have been mental (miss a couple shots, lose confidence, reflects on defense, the cycle continues the more shots you miss and the other team makes). Creighton typically hits a lot of shots, and they had their runs in this game. Butler answered every time with a run of their own.

    This was a team effort. Obviously, Kamar had a fantastic game, but Brunk and Fowler were terrific. Baddely and PJ played tough defense. Tucker had some nice flashes as well. McDermott and AT didn't have the best games, but other players picked them up. This was a team victory, which is highly encouraging moving forward.

    Continue to play hard, have fun, and stay mentally tough and we could finish top of the Big East. Can't regress back to the Florida-G'town version of the team. Keep the momentum rolling!

    Forgot to mention that we should give credit to LaVall as well. He drew up a good defensive gameplan, made the right lineup adjustments, and had the team ready to play. When the coaching and the execution is on point, sky's the limit.

    I know it’s probably just the heat of the game to get on their coach, but unlike some posters I have no issue with McDermott as a coach. Seems under control and only gets agitated when he feels it is warranted. Teams play under control and he takes advantage of the talents and abilities of his players.

    That was a must-win game. It’s good to have Butler basketball back! Howard, Stigall, and Graves were at the game. I wonder if LaVall had those guys come talk to the team?

    Also, in the postgame interview, Kamar said there was a players-only meeting.

    Huge win. Creighton is a solid team but I wonder if they are really an elite 3 point shooting team. On the one hand, they came into the game top 10 in ncaa in 3 pt shooting; on the other hand they were sub-300 in free throw shooting, which is usually indicative of shooting ability. Obviously still a huge win given our last 2 games and our previous issues with Creighton.

    Now let’s see what team shows up for 3 winnable games on the road.

    They needed a players only meeting. Loved the active hands by guards on drives to the lane.

    The stat the says it all is steals. Butler had eight players with a steal. Think about that.

    I scratch my head with the criticism of any player today. I don't get it.

    I'd like to ask Coach Jordan's tailor where the hell his head was during the 2nd half. Otherwise, no complaints.

    Team meeting by the players is the best form of leadership. It doesnt have to come from one or two players. It can come from everyone which showed today.

    Liked the switching on the high ball screen. Dived tail with what we talking about that needed to change from the GT game.
