BUTLER UNIVERSITY BULLDOGS (17-13, 8-11 BIG EAST)
WEDNESDAY, MARCH 6, 2024 AT 7:30 P.M. ET
HINKLE FIELDHOUSE IN INDIANAPOLIS, IND. BETTER KNOWN to X fans as A Barn

Television: CBS Sports Network with play-by-play from Andrew Catalon and analysis from Steve Lappas.

I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

I am concerned with how well we will play with all the speculation surrounding Miller. Normally a NIT bid would be a good thing for a young team like ours but only if we are going to play hard. These rumors will negatively affect our recruiting and the portal.I guess this is what we will have to live with when you have a hot coach. Can we count on Seanś loyalty to X? I guess we will see. Butler is a 2.5 favorite tonight so I suspect it will be a another dog fight. Go X!!!

we shall see how these minutes get divvied up without Swain. maybe Green can get in there more and get hot from 3. need this one badly.

and i'll just tell you this now - Sean isn't going anywhere. just sayin.

Sources say Miller stays. Hopefully we don’t homered like usually at Butler. Losing Swain hurts especially since they have some tough guards that shoot. Time for Abu to play like a BE player, he has been awful.

Rough start. The defense is horrible. The walk on is in. Miller must be pretty mad at Green. Olivari is struggling.

Claude and Mcknight playing lazy defense. Maybe they are tired. Green has zero idea how to stay in front of his man. Turnovers , Poor effort and body language. Butler is a struggling team.

Butler started hot then cooled off but our offense is horrible. A, Des and McKnight need to be a lot better than this.

I think Olivari and Mcknight are tired. Djokovic and Ousmane are offensively lost. We are limping to the finish line.

Tired!!! The whole league is tired. Get tired in April not now. This team is so soft and as we all said a million times no low post presence, bad team defense and if Olivari does not score forget about it. Olivari needs to do more to get the ball. He has not been moving a lot on offense lately which makes him an easy guard.
