    So....many believe Butler is a Top 10 team, and while NewCath has a FANTASTIC point guard, they have been just okay this year. So what gives: Butler less than their A game, or is a fully stocked NewCath starting to find their form?

    Pangallo was still out for this game. NCC did a good job handling Butler press and traps. Not many turnovers. Butler is LONG and quick. Butler fought hard for this win! For sure not an off game from my seat.

    Thanks, and I meant no offense to the Breds, but I've watched them twice and didn't see a bunch capable of taking a Top 10 team to the wire. I'm a huge Hall fan, he is a blast to watch.

    If NCC makes free throws it's not close.
    20-34 from the stripe.

    NCC can be a sleeper by end if the year. Good guard play can get teams far in the Tournament.

    Newcath is getting extremely good right now. An they played 2 top 15 teams in the state an went 1-1. An if we hit free throws we would be 2-0 against top teams in two days. Don't blink this team gets 100% healthy an there as dangerous as any team come end of the year.
