    I don't like Denari calling this game. First off, I was excited for Gus. Second, I follow him on Twitter and he is a Butler fanboy. Can't say I can tell during the game, but it's always on my mind.

    He's not this bad all the time, but this is the type of game he plays: selfish. He has no athleticism or lift, he doesn't play within the team, and frequently does stupid things with the ball. I won't be shedding any tears when he graduates.

    Hulls is a killer one of the best 3pt shooters ive seen this year.


    that looked like Lance sitting next to Eric Gordon .


    What Cdash said about Watford=truth

    He is basically just a 3pt shooter who tries to be more IMO I hope Crean doesnt recruit any guys like him.

    Maybe only 75% of the time. Although, I will give him that I've seen more effort since his return from a long bench stint the 1st part of this half.

    I've seen multiple plays that I'd have sat him down and had a talk. He wouldn't get much PT like that if I was coaching. Which I never will, but hey!

    He's a junior and has done the same **** for three years. Every year he flirts with maybe declaring for the NBA Draft. Apparently common sense wins out, because that guy will never play a minute in the NBA.

    Depends. Do you count Summer League as playing in the NBA?

    Zeller uses lots of smart little tricks when he plays, like when he let Marshall fall all over himself when they were both lined up for the free throw. You only get to where you can use those consistently when you're used to playing tough competition all the time. Like I guess having two Div I seven footers for brothers.

    They sure scared me with their deer-in-headlights play in the first half. Silly mistakes, missing bunnies, Stevens' successfully luring Zeller out of the post and away from the rim on defense, etc. The difference between this year's team and the past few years is that this team didn't shrink in the second half. They answered, looked mature, confident. I loved it. So perhaps I spoke too soon about feeling bad about this game. I didn't think we would lower the boom on them like that.

    Very nice second half. This team has improved so much! Hopefully they step up vs. NC State. Kentucky... well, that's too much to ask, but I bet we won't be intimidated anymore.

    If we beat NC State, I am driving my *** 6 hours to go watch that UK game in person. I don't really think we have much of a chance at winning, but I just want to see how absolutely nuts Assembly Hall goes for that one if we are undefeated going into it.

    Very excited for the first time in a while!

    (I went to IU from 2006-2010, graduated May '10, so I got one year of Kelvin Sampson/Eric Gordon, and then...)

    I'm not a fan of Christian Watford at all. 6-8 forward who plays like a bad 6-0 guard, takes way too many dribbles in the post, bad handles, selfish and too laid back to be an impact guy, etc.

    BUT I love the efforts by all the other guys! Even on nights when they're not getting anything to fall. Would have liked to see Elston play a little more aggressively early on, but pleasant surprise from Pritchard tonight, and Sheeladipo is going to be a force for the next few years (especially as the supporting cast continues to build).

    Defensive intensity is nuts this year. Can tell Crean really stressed it. Hardest they've played on D in years.

    Only major thing coming out of this game is I think Crean needs to strongly consider sitting Watford for Elston or Sheehey. Watford needs to get the message about being a supporting element, not a featured guy.

    i was quite impressed with what i saw from both squads. this was a gritty, tough hustle type of game. plenty of diving for loose balls and such. butler is currently 3-3 however, if they can play that kind of defense on a regular basis, they will beat teams this year because of it.

    as for my Hoosiers, they were tested tonight by butler's defense and their solid shooting.
    iu has the depth advantage though and that always helps when you can maintain a strong offensive presence even when several regular starters are sitting down.

    Watched it from BWW's in Arkansas. Anyone who's paid attention to scores know's IU looks better than Butler this year, but this did have the feel of a "symbolic" win. Looking forward to seeing them against NC State and UK.

    So why wasn't Gus calling the game? During the IU/PU bucket game they were promoing the IU v Butler matchup and promoting Gus Johnson with the call....
    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.

    I'll just come out and say it, Butler plays ugly, ugly junkyard basketball and it's what makes them so successful. They are not the basketball purist school they portray themselves to be, but they have a gameplan and they stick to it. Based on pure talent that game should have never been close, but because of the way Butler plays they always hang around much longer than they should and if you don't step on their necks around the 10 minute mark of the second half they are going to give you serious problems.

    Credit to the young Hoosiers for doing that, but after really watching Butler now for a couple years, particularly the past year or so after Hayward went pro, I can see why people struggle so much with them. They play junkyard basketball, and I'm not trying to make that an insult because it clearly works and keeps teams off balance. I'm very happy with this game, I don't know if Butler will make the tournament, but if they do I have no doubt they will be a tough out and IU showed some serious mental toughness tonight to finish off Butler when the Bulldogs gave them the window to do so. That is a HUGE step.

    The first half was ugly and the first 10 minutes of the second wasn't much better, but when Butler started to crack credit to Hulls, Sheehey, Oladipo, and Zeller for smelling blood and ripping out their hearts. I thought that was just a great sign. Last year's team would have completely missed that chance.

    Our big work between now and NC State should be on the boards, way too many offensive rebounds given up tonight is my biggest complaint. Also, need to come up with some more efficient sets for Watford and VJIII IMO.

    Also, it was pretty clear Butler came out to intimidate us tonight with their physical play, particularly against Zeller, another big A+ to him for responding not letting it take him out of his game and to keep plugging along. ONly once did he really float outside and take a bad jump shot, he kept pounding and working inside for position even when he wasn't always being rewarded with good passes, and it finally all came together in beautiful motion when Sheehey nailed the no look assist to Zeller. His constant effort in the post makes up for a lot of the issues we have in terms of Hulls being the only guy who can really consistently throw an entry pass.

    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
    For all the questions Crean has gotten, I thought his adjustments at half time and through out the second half addressed many of these issues.

    We brought more help D on Hopkins. Pritchard and Elston and Sheehey got more minutes when Watford was struggling on the boards, and the ball movement definitely picked up. I think Crean has to get some credit for how the game closed out.
