    I sure hope AT doesn’t come back next year. He is an absolute bum. Learn how to shoot a basketball buddy.

    At this time in the season I will just take a win and be hopeful we can do well next game. After watching some BIG 10 games, I think sadly think they could dominate the Big East. I guess we will see in the Tournament.

    Slow start, but BU covered with ease. LOL It does appear LJ has loosen his grip a bit.

    Had to get the kid down for a nap so just catching up on DVR time. Love seeing Nze have a good game. Some of those lineups in the last 8 mins were a bit strange. Yay for a W!

    I think it's noteworthy that this is another game where they finished out with Golden on the bench. I think going smaller with Nze at the 5 is preferable so long as Golden continues to struggle to finish.

    Nze wasn't physically outmatched today and he had a fine game. That seems to happen pretty often.

    Awful game to watch, but still happy with the win. I think we'll see if the loss of Meyer continues to negatively impact the offense. Too many guys who aren't threats offensively to really judge right now. Encouraging games from Nze and Harris.

    Butler is 5-8 in the Big East. It's been a disaterous season, but if we had set an over/under at 4.5 for conference wins at the start of January I'm pretty sure a significant percentage of this board would have taken the under. Things could have completely fallen apart for this team, but they haven't. I know it's not the season we all wanted, but I think a few years from now we are going to look back and appreciate some of these games.

    Never get beat baseline. If u get beat make it the middle. That’s where the majority of ur help will be. Also, easier to rotate on “help the helper” situations. Saying that, try not and get beat at all is a good piece of advice as well.

    Opposite. Get to the baseline, cut off that drive, and force the offensive player to the middle. NEVER get beat to the baseline. I have screamed about this in every thread this season. Too many times Dawgs are getting beat on the baseline, which opens up dishes to the corner 3 pointer or handoffs in the paint for dunks. Put your foot on the baseline and force the offense to turn in to the middle.

    Not sure if it translated to TV, but Bo’s stealthy rebound/putback was electric. Not sure I can think of another BU player who showed that kind of explosion.

    Refs heard about the missed goaltend. Ref watcher was center court taking it all in—that film’s gonna be embarrassing.

    I get Leitao was looking to break out of the slump, but GET OFF THE COURT.

    Quieter Hinkle is weird. Random DePaul fans were yelling when BU was at the line. DePaul bench kept yelling loudly “rebound”. They were clearly chuckling about it. Pipe down and play.

    I haven't watched on TV yet, but what was the call on David when he shot for the corner? They would never show a replay at Hinkle. Believe me. I yelled for one several times...
