    Well, there is some Butler basketball today.

    The Women's squad is playing #1 UConn in 20 minutes.

    Bueckers is going to be the Larry Bird of women’s basketball. 20 points, 14 assists.

    97-68 final. Morale victory.

    So when does the women's team begin reaping the benefits of these 72 and 29 point blowouts by Connecticut?

    Understand the sentiment, but 29 to UConn is like a 3-5pt loss to anyone else.

    I don’t think you can look at that. It’s really hard to scale with UCONN.

    Just shows you the difference between Butler and #25 is much smaller than #25 and UConn.

    I totally understand why you draw this conclusion, and logically don’t think you’re wrong, but apparently by whomever does like womens kenpom this was the biggest upset of the year in WBB. Butler had like a 2% chance to win, and it’s the second biggest upset of the last four years. Normally you’d be completely correct in this, but I think with this specific Butler womens team, DePaul is likely closer to UCONN than Butler is to DePaul.

    You're correct; I think my amateur analysis is that it's much easier for Butler to get to DePaul's level than it is for DePaul to get to UConn's level.

    Actually a very interesting question. I’d think that if DePaul got the two best recruits in a class they’d be immediately competitive with (but still not as a good as) UCONN-whereas I’m not sure even that would get this Butler team to DePaul’s level.

    Butler can get to DePaul’s level without truly elite talent, however, and that’s theoretically easier to accumulate.

    It’s hard to assess since the really good women’s players are so much better than average women’s players, but there are so many fewer of them than on the men’s side.

    Experience also counts for a lot more on the women’s side than on men’s.

    It’s a really interesting question and I’m inclined to agree with you.
