    Well, so far Butler and IU aren't making it easy on each other on the defensive end...

    Our shot selection thus far has been questionable. Watford missing chippies left and right. Irritating to watch.

    IU has actually gotten a lot of good looks that they've just missed. We're even missing free throws right now.

    At this rate our entire starting unit will be fouled out by halftime.

    First game I've watched of college basketball in years that wasn't in the tournament. I've always pulled for IU basketbal but I don't think I've watched games regularly since Calbert Cheaney and Eric Anderson. lol

    Butler has been forcing IU away from what they'd like to do offensively and keeping them just that little bit off-balance. IU, OTOH, has been poking at the ball and making ballhandling/passing harder for Butler.
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    Textbook double bounce pass assist there from Watford to Hulls.

    Rebounding continues to be a major weakness.

    Hopkins is on fire.

    Hopkins is already good. If he stays all four years he will positively OWN the Horizon League.

    For IU...

    PG defense has allowed costly penetration at times
    Defensive boards need work
    Need a bit more ball movement to be successful against Butler's style of D

    Also need to take care of the ball better. More movement in the halfcourt.

    Butler appears to be trying to beat IU at their own game tonight, initiating more of a full-court offense than usual.

    Just like at the pro am Hopkins is a monster tonight. Kid is so athletic has crazy hops and plays the game the right way good college player. He is a good shooter and he plays 100% all the time. I really like his and Oladipo's game


    Should be a great 2nd half expect a close game

    Dammit!

    Oh well, we'll have to settle for a 31-28 lead at the half. Both of these teams play their best ball in the 2nd half so it'll be interesting.

    Yeah, IU players frequently getting ball and putting heads down with intent to score. You can't do that against Butler's D. That's like playing into their hands. They've got to beat the D with more ball/player movement. They aren't playing the no-D cupcakes tonight where you can get to the rim at will.

    As this is my first game in years as I said, let me say I am not impressed with Watford one bit. Talk about just putting your head down and determined to make a shot that isn't there.

    This clear out head down offense isn't gonna work against Butler.

    I dont think he wants to play 2nd fittle

    last year this team was built around him now he is just a role player he has to learn how to play his role and play with his teammates.

    There ya go, dribble penetration with a drop off pass. Butler has no choice but to foul that. That's what's gonna work here.

    Additionally on Watford, the guy is just flat out weak and underwhelmingly athletic at 6-8. So it's partly Butler's physicality. Doesn't bode well for his B10 season.

    Rebounding is going to be an issue all season. Quick opposing guards are going to be an issue all season. Even if we win, I'm not feeling great about this game.

    God I love players like Sheehey. Hits the three, causes the turnover on the other end, calls for the ball all the way up the floor, then when he doesn't get it crashes to the rim for the putback. Just like that it's a 9-0 run and Will started it.

    Well, one good thing has been our D. Both teams are playing high intensity on that end. You expect it from Butler. Good to see IU match that level so far. Is a must for long-term success.

    I love seeing both teams diving on the floor and getting scrappy. You can tell both teams want this a little more than either would probably admit. I'm tired of Butler, but gotta respect the way they play.
