    DJ showed why he was one of the top players in Indiana last year. Showed how scrappy he is in the Blue White scrimmage. Now is finally getting a chance on the court. He just needs to work on his Free Throws.

    OU’s 26-game non-con home win streak is over :)

    Underclassmen came through. There's hope if Lavall figures it out

    What now? Might as well open the Covid thread back up, nothing to see here.

    It was on ESPN. ESPN app should have it on replay. Pretty easy to find.

    Don’t look now boys but, technically, this team is still on pace to be a bubble team with opportunities to improve on the resume. A quad 1 win with no bad losses.

    I am sorry - but why was Hughes not playing earlier? He had “it” tonight in the somewhat limited amount of time he played.

    Great win on the road. No FTs hit until the last four minutes of regulation and 9-9 after. That was a fun game to watch.

    I don't know if anyone else saw it but running off the court LJ high fives everyone except Wilmoth, not a great look...

    Big time win! Chucky, Luko, and DJ came through in the clutch.

    That was the happiest I’ve been watching Butler basketball in awhile.

    Well I’ll happily eat my words tonight. Give Vall credit for zone and for playing the young guys. Couldn’t be more impressed by Simms and Hughes. Let’s please have no more Christian David though.

    Really happy to see this for a group so down on its luck. Morale victories > moral victories.

    Also, in the handshake line Groce was expressionless.. like he was wondering "Why am I here"... but maybe he just looks that way most of the time!

    I would imagine when Butler starts getting back guys from the DL, they’ll probably take it from either DJ or Wilmoth. Still, right now DJ is showing that old school yard dog effort I was really hoping to see when we recruited him, plus Luko is my boy…until he wasn’t…and now he is again.

    I couldn't understand why the announcers kept praising him. He had a bunch of lazy plays today. He opted to let a rebound go out of bounds while an OU player behind him ran and got it. He just completely failed to even try and cover their best 3 point shooter in the corner in the zone once. He got straight up beat on D a couple of times. He was so good last game, but just didn't have it today IMO.

    Well, 7-8, but in the heat of the moment you are forgiven!

    You all have to give LaVall Jordan credit for that zone/man switching that threw Oklahoma off in the 2nd. Also, he stuck with the hot group. I actually think he outcoached Moser in the 2nd.

    So our man to man defense is pretty crap, I know OU isn't a great 3 point shooting team but we are more active and can't get beat as easily on the zone. Let's go full Syracuse
