News On The Horizon 3/4/2008

The Boubacar 3/4/2008 (Two-Bid Edition)--The Mid-Majority

Horizon League. This one's pretty simple: Butler has a free pass to the semis by virtue of its regular-season championship, and the four teams playing a mini-bracket for the honor of facing them Saturday will be plenty tired. Unless they lose that game by 30 on their home floor, they're bulletproof. It's up to one of the others -- No. 2 Cleveland State or No. 3 Wright State, specifically -- to upset the Bulldogs in the final to force the two-bid issue for the second straight season.
