    UConn is back in the BEast.

    UConn only loss on season is a 2 point loss to Creighton.

    Butler looked better against Georgetown. Having AT back was a huge shot in the arm.

    These teams have met exactly ONCE in the history of both programs. I don't care to relive that game.

    Let's see what happens on Saturday.

    I hope everyone took the under in that one.

    Only Butler game I’ve ever turned off before the final buzzer. Absolutely brutal.

    Let’s move to 3-0 at Hinkle in conference play.

    Sad thing is I had to think for a minute about when the 2 teams last met. Then I was like duh.

    I did the same thing and then tuned back in for the last minute or so. But enough of reliving the past.

    What many don't remember about that game...we had the lead at halftime. Sigh.

    I don't think we'll have the lead this time at half. Watched a lot of Uconn-Marquette the other night. They were asleep for much of the game then snapped it on. Pretty damn good team.

    Shooting 30% from the floor is crappy. And yet if Butler did that in 2011, they are national champs. Sigh.

    Plus IIRC, Stigall led off the 2nd half with a 3 to push the lead to 6.

    Yup. Shelvin buried a 3 right before half and then Chase hit that. I remember thinking we had all the momentum and were in control...and then yeah. That was a long drive home the next day to Indy.

    Well, here's one that would be a huge win for Butler. Imagine, they'd be 3-3 in conference play with a win.

    Honestly, and I'm dead serious about this, if BU had beaten SIU...they would be right on the NCAA Tournament early bubble if they were to win against UConn. I don't think BU would ever be "great" this season but we'd still be talking about the best postseason tournament at this point if AT never got hurt. That loss really was a huge resume-killer, especially with playing only two sub-150 teams all year (that would theoretically boost overall record). There aren't *that many* bubble-ish teams that would be better than 5-4 against BU's first nine opponents (including UConn).

    I'd guess Dawgs are 4-5 point Dawgs in this one, though.

    Uconn was favored by 1 at Marquette. I'm guessing add a few to that and we'll land around where Lukas said.

    I know Uconn>>>>>Gtown but it was fun to get a win and gives you a better feeling going into this tilt than if we were on a losing streak. AT being back was a nice boost for fans and team morale I'm sure.

    He's out at least the next 2.5 weeks. Will be re-evaluated then. Slight meniscus tear.

    Whaley is going to absolutely destroy Butler down low. UConn is aggressive and athletic. If they weren't UConn, I'd like watching them. Hopefully they sleepwalk through some of the game again, which appears to really be their weakness.

    I will be totally thrilled if I just jinxed him.

    Great to see AT back last night. The surprising contributions/minutes from JMM & especially Hastings were a nice bonus too. Also sounds like CD could be close to seeing the court. Starting to feel a little better about our depth as long as no one else goes down.

    They definitely did Tuesday...first half and some of the second. Hell I had them and turned the game off in disgust...bout 30 minutes later got an alert saying I covered. I was quite pleased.
