That was exciting, eh?

We'll understand if you're not sober enough to type until tomorrow - quite a finish for Butler! SIU's a tough place to come out of with a W.

That was the luckiest/best finish I have ever witnessed in all my years of following Butler basketball!!!! A 35 foot runner for the win with 1/0 on the clock!!!!

I can't drink when watching a game on TV. I am entirely too nervous/involved to busy myself with the refrigerator. All I do is constantly whip my cat's toy balls against the front door to relieve stress. My arm feels like I threw 8 innings.

Hey ButlerGuy, do you think Zags will win today? line is -2 or so...i wish we were the underdogs in Vegas for this game. We seem to play better as an underdog's role.

but Tennessee is going to pose some issues because their attack accentuates the portion of defense that Gonzaga has struggled with, really for as long as I can remember. There are only 3 or 4 teams in the country where it is absolutely imperative to be flawless in your parameter defense and Tennessee is one of those teams. I'd really like to see a win, but I fear Tyler Smith and Chris Lofton are going to have a field day if the defensive effort isn't the best it has been in at least the last two years.

I know it's not the "new" Gonzaga-style, but I think you beat the Vols if a Monson-era clock-milking, limited possession game is played. I do not know if Jeremy Pargo is the right point guard for such a strategy.

I knew Graves was gonna hit a shot. SIU kept missing FTs and a team like Butler will make you pay. The crowd went from deafening to dead silent. Wow, great fnish. Kudos.

The great thing about that shot was the way it went in. It's one thing to hit a 35 ft. runner, but Graves' shot appeared to spin all the way around the rim, pop out, and then fall back in. I've never seen another shot like it from that distance. What a great finish!

Just make sure you get the toy ones.
