    Trae Young and Marvin Bagley with some monster numbers today.

    Bagley
    32 points, 21 rebounds

    Young
    39 points, 14 assists

    Those are both ridiculous for a 40 minute college game.

    Butler basketball on a Saturday afternoon in Hinkle Fieldhouse can be such a beautiful thing. They are playing some great ball today- shooting and passing.

    Whooping up on #1 Villanova, just like last year.

    Well, they were up 20+. Nova made a crazy run to within a couple possessions.

    Bulldogs hold on for an 8 point win and NOW it's "just like last year" (66-58 at Butler).

    And all this time I thought the reason that Butler beat nova last season was because Ho1tmann was such a great coach:wink:

    Holtmann's players :biggrin2:

    But really, I keep stressing this is all part of the Butler Way (tm) as they say around here- Lavall Jordan (former player) is carrying on what Matta to Stevens to Holtmann established. Just great kids that play tough, smart basketball, and the Bulldogs knocked down a lot shots yesterday. Holtmann will bring the same here to grow what Matta started.

    Plus, maybe the Holtmann and the Buckeyes will have a chance of their own to knock off a #1 next week (MSU). :pimp:

    Some other notes from that game. Coach Matta was there to watch. Very cool.

    There is an article in the Columbus Dispatch which I cannot access but it says that Matta is currently living in Indianapolis. I remember that his daughter was visiting there when his firing took place.

    I did not know this :biggrin2:
    The NCAA altered the team sheets its using for tournament selection this year, putting more emphasis on road and neutral site wins. Gone are the days of using records against the RPI top-50, top-100, top-200 and then 200 or above regardless of where the game was played. Instead the selection committee will use four quadrants.

    Here’s the breakdown of each quadrant, from NCAA.com:

    • Quadrant 1: Home 1-30 (RPI); Neutral 1-50; Away 1-75

    • Quadrant 2: Home 31-75; Neutral 51-100; Away 76-135

    • Quadrant 3: Home 76-160; Neutral 101-200; Away 136-240

    • Quadrant 4: Home 161-plus; Neutral 201-plus; Away 241-plus.

    How you fare in quadrants 1 and 2 makes you an attractive team for tournament selection. Andy Katz did a breakdown of where things stand this week, and Ohio State is in a good spot with a 1-3 record in quadrant 1, and a 3-1 record in quadrant 2. That record can of course change as RPI spots change, but Ohio State right now is OK for a tournament spot. If the Buckeyes win the games they’re supposed to win moving forward, they should be fine.

    Ohio State has two games remaining that would fall into quadrant 1: At Purdue on Feb. 7, and at Michigan on Feb. 18.

    Looks like the Arizona State luster has worn off

    After losing at home to Oregon last night, theyve now lost 3/4 (2 to unranked teams)
