    Agree

    I am so happy to finally have a win that could hopefully help us get into March

    Man chuck was making me so mad with some of his passes down the stretch but made up for it with that alley oop

    Taylor looked smooth and confident

    Hunter hit big shots that seniors should hit

    Luko was clutch at the line

    Guys stepped up with not having a bench and we will def need to rest up

    Props, again, to Chuck for that play to Manny. He had a tough night but did not go away and made a winning play to set up a teammate in a big moment. Big makes by Hunter down the stretch, as well!

    I wonder if the lack of subbing was Thad’s way of having guys work through that “mental fatigue” he was talking about?

    Granted with only 8 healthy, there wasn’t a lot of options. Just seemed like some of the guys were clearly gassed but he wanted them to learn to push through it.

    It's a great confidence builder . . . if you win.

    Thrilled to get a win in Atlantis with tomorrow still to play. Somebody leaves 0-3-glad it won’t be us. Really impressed with the way the team bounced back after last night. Also was pleased with the response to BYU’s 12-0 run to start the 2nd half. Finally, good to see the guys make the plays down the stretch to win a tight game.

    BYU isn’t elite defensively like Tennessee but they’re still a potential NCAAT team so this is a solid win and an important bounce-back after yesterday.

    All I can say after watching this game and painfully watch Butler over the past few years is coaching matters. Thank you Thad.

    They gotta have a guy who can consistently hit two 3’s a game and if Hunter can find his shot and be that guy, that’s a big lift and helps spacing on offense.

    Happy they got a win and obviously they won't get anyone back for tomorrow but this team needs reinforcements in the worst way. They desperately need some of the injured guys to return.

    Unfortunately, probably not for Kansas State either.

    Do we know that we won't get Hughes back tomorrow?

    Seemed okay after the game but if it's a quad... Could be limiting. They were all in great spirits after the game (to be expected) but they looked to play much looser than last night. Jayden is on a mission!

    Playing time-tonight/total in last 30 hours:

    Harris-37 minutes/63 minutes
    Hunter-37/73
    Lukosius-37/62
    Taylor-36/67
    Bates-27/48
    (Thomas, 9/33; Turnbull, 8/12; Hughes, 6/25; Tate, 3/13)

    If you're looking for some good news: NC State has used only 8 players, and they've actually used a bit fewer bench minutes than Butler (60 minutes vs. 83 minutes), so they should be just as tired as our players. (Some of that can be attributed to our foul trouble, especially in the first half of the Tennessee game.)

    For NC State:

    Morrell-38 minutes/75 minutes
    Smith-37/73
    Joiner-33/72
    Clark-35/68
    Mahorcic-24/49
    (Burns-15/30; Thomas-10/18; Ross-5/12)

    There will be some seriously tired legs tomorrow night, but theirs should be just as tired as ours.

    I agree there were good things to take away from this game, especially in light of Butler being down some players. I hope they clean up some of their turnovers, though. 23 turnovers against Tenn, and 16 tonight. Some were careless, risky passes. Still, relieved after this win!!
