I know awhile back Butlerway (or someone) said that they would be making a blog entry about how this year's team could actually be comparable to the 2010-2011 team. Though they won't run their offense as such, I would actually say this team would likely be more comparable to the 2010-2011 BYU team with Rotnei Clarke taking the place of Jimmer Fredette, and that would probably be their best bet of scoring points (and ultimately, their success as a team) this year. The reason for that is that in his last season of college basketball, Clarke took up just over 20% of Arkansas' possessions, but of all the players in the NCAA that used 20% or more of their team's possessions, had the 18th highest efficiency rating of 120.8, just slightly higher than Matt Howard was that year (120.2). Meanwhile (and not very surprisingly), Butler didn't have a player rated in the Top 100 last year, with Khyle Marshall having the top efficiency rating on the team of 110.3 (Smith was right behind him at 110.1). Also, between Hopkins and Stigall, two of the worst statistical offensive players in the Horizon league, took 27.2% and 19.5% of the team's shots when they were in the game (this does not mean they took this % of the team's total shots for the year), but that is entirely too much for guys that weren't very good offensively (not that anyone was good last year). With the addition of Clarke, this will obviously change, but he and Dunham are going to have to take (and make) an obscene amount of shots in order for Butler to become a good offensive team, because they won't be as good defensively as they were last year. Another reason why I want Clarke to take as many shots as he possibly can next season is because Woods, Marshall, Jones and Smith were in the Top 15 in the HL in Offensive Rebounding percentage. While I don't think they'll be quite that high in the A-10, that is what they actually do well. While a strategy like this would seem easy to defend against, BYU did have success with it and was able to protect Jimmer from actually having to play defense, which is not Clarke's strong suit either. I know it's Butler and Brad loves defense, but he needs to do at least what he did with Mack and stick Clarke on the weakest offensive player on the other team to conserve his energy for where it will be needed the most, on the offensive end of the court.
