Good Morning Hoops Nation: February 2--The Mid-Majority

Horizon League: The Butler Bulldogs (10-0) spent their Friday night with 6,623 of their closest friends, entertaining Valparaiso and their screaming yellow zonkers uniforms. And while some impartial observers weren't impressed by the fightback-fest that resulted in a free throw-padded 59-51 Butler win, scoring margin has always been a poor indicator of character. At no point did Butler lose its composure or start freaking out, like teams full of freshmen are supposed to do. This team takes after its head coach, Mr. Brad Stevens, who seems to get ruffled less often than President Obama.
