Good Morning Hoops Nation: February 17--The Mid-Majority

Conference Calls
Horizon League: Speaking of those Bulldogs, they took their first home loss of the season on Sunday against Loyola. We're happy for the Ramblers and for Jordan Hicks, the freshman who turned in the performance of his young career with 23 points and eight rebounds. But there's a tinge of regret for Butler (13-2), whose backcourt has been playing inconsistently of late and relying on super-soph/mini-Hulk Matt Howard for excellence. The turnover numbers are creeping up, and a defense that could slip by any screen a month ago is showing cracks. Fact is that Loyola's a year away, and Butler is Sweet 16-capable if it's playing at its best. The more teams we send deep into March, the less we have to defend the importance of what goes on at this level. Casual fans demand simple math.
