    My son is a junior basketball manager at Butler. His roommate Xan Korman, also set to be a junior at Butler, was shot last week in a drive by shooting in Washington D.C. Sadly, Xan passed away this evening. Xan was a photographer for the Butler Collegian and was friends with many players and managers. His photos of the team were often found on Social Media and on Twitter. It's hard to fathom this senseless violence. If you are a praying type, say one tonight for Xan's family and friends.

    So sad to hear of this happening to anyone, let alone a member of the Butler family. Sincerest condolences and prayers to his family and those he impacted along the way.

    Please tell your son that the great Butler community mourns with him. As mentioned by others, the senselessness of this and similar crimes is mind numbing.

    Awful, awful news. Feeling for his family, friends, and the team. Our guys LOVED Xan. Anytime somebody was getting up extra shots, he was there. He provided great insight to Butler hoops and I’ll always be grateful for that.
