    That's why next year is the year. We will have BE size everywhere. Actually this year we are not really that small it's just our two best players are tiny so it kills us.

    Cain and Elliot need to add muscle but I love those freshman. Cain should reach the hights that everyone hoped JuJuan would.

    Next year it's basically Markus that's undersized. Elliot is a lanky 6'3 and Anim is a thick 6'4.

    Otherwise it's Cain, Bailey, Hauser Brothers, John, Froling, Heldt, Morrow for guys over 6'6. Eke is redshirted this year not sure he even plays next year.

    Theo John and Ed Morrow give us the legit BE bodies.

    Just wish in the mean time our undersized guys could get a call

    I take Nova in like all my pools because butler simply isn't good this year


    And now butler decides to have the greatest shooting performance of all time

    What a joke

    Yea, they made it respectable at the end, but the truth is Butler DESTROYED us.

    We can't ever beat Butler.

    That was just rotten luck. Sure, Nova chucked unnecessary 3s in the 1st half when they scored at will inside but that game was mostly a product of the fluke shooting performance of the season

    I've watched butler a lot and everyone outside of Martin and Baldwin are not even worthy of remembering their names. And even Baldwin is incredibly inefficient most of the time

    Nova was shooting 48% and down 20 at 1 point

    Their 3 point shooting was insane. I don't think Butler missed a 3 in the 2nd half.

    But there were countless defensive lapses by Nova. Some work to do.

    Yea, I thought this was going to be a down year for Butler too. Butler has now set themselves up as a tourney team.

    That was a huge win for Butler, especially with the stretch they opened up with in Big East play:

    @ G'town
    vs. #1 Nova
    @ #6 Xavier
    vs. #23 Seton Hall
    @ #25 Creighton
    vs. Marq
    @ Providence

    This is getting ridiculous

    Wojo has to accept the fine because we literally do not get the calls and it needs to be addressed

    Unbiased announcers point it out every game

    Howard and/or Rowsey in foul trouble every first half

    The opponent or venue dont matter

    Howard with a legendary bounce back game

    But still might lose because providence goes to line every trip

    Game actually was more competitive then I thought

    Markus is so good

    But our Bad D plus Novas unreal offense is not a good recipe

    If Rowsey was even half competent/we make some of the wide open looks we got in the first 10 min maybe it gets really interesting

    No shame in tonight's result tho

    Brunson was the difference.

    When the other team gets closer, he just makes offense. Without him, we're a borderline Top 25 team.

    Marquette actually has a nice collection of players at positions 1 to 4. I like Anim. He's active and athletic.

    Losing Rowsey will be addition by subtraction.

    Brunson gets loads of praise and is still underrated in my opinion. Bridges is considered the major prospect and he's good...but give me Brunson. The dude is simply in control.

    100% agree on Rowsey. This years team NEEDs him. We simply don't have the bodies or experienced scoring. But next year when we do, we will not miss him. His defense is historically bad and pairing him with also bad Howard is why our D sucks so bad

    Anim and the 2 lanky freshmen Cain and Elliot(him forsure) are actually very quality defenders. Hauser holds his own vs bigger guys. And the 3 bigs might foul a lot but all 3 are competent.

    So yeah, we have a horrible defense and yet 7/9 guys are decent-good defenders individually.

    Marquette taking apart Seton Hall, who is an RPI monster.

    Marquette's now a bubble team.

    We've always been a bubble team. I think our RPI and SOS were 36/15 coming in. Still don't know if we can consistently play like this tho.

    But holy fuck I hope Wojo found something with this defense(sitting Rowsey or Howard a lot). Best defensive game in 4 years.

    Regardless I'm so goddam excited for what John, Elliot and Cain could be for their next 3 years

    I think they needed a marquee win to realistically snag a bid and they have it now.

    There's gonna be so many teams on the bubble this year tho. So much mediocrity.

    O yeah we got a LONG ways to go and we're probably out before this. Just meant we def were in convo.

    So many bubble teams. We definitely have the look of a 7-10 seed tourney team. But gotta prove it way more.

    Also great to see what happens when the refs don't call a bunch of horsesht on us(might have even had a slight edge tonight)

    First game vs a high major I think all year we didn't get crushed with fouls

    Besides Nova last game as well but we weren't ever gonna win so im counting this as the first lol
