News On The Horizon 1/29/2010

Wojta leads Wisconsin-Green Bay to win over
Mid-Majority Chat Block, Episode 611--The Mid-Majority

[Comment From Mike M.Mike M.: ]
Two gunslingers walk into the Resch Center tonight. Any chance the Phoenix can take (at least a little) control of its life now, or does Butler win and officially make a mockery of the rest of the Horizon League with a 4 game lead.

I've seen both these teams a few times this year, and I don't think there's any question that Butler is the better team. However, Green Bay may be the biggest roller-coaster team in the Horizon League. Beat Wisconsin, lose to Buffalo. Lose by 20 to Milwaukee, beat Detroit and Wright State. They're just hard to get a beat on. But, they're also very tough to play at the Resch Center... and Butler knows that well after losing up there last season. That said, Butler is quietly starting to put together 40-minute efforts, and dominating their competition. I tend to side with the "mockery" side of your question...

(16-4, 30, 56) Butler’s a team we always assume is safe in the at-large picture. But it almost lost to Xavier; maybe should have lost to Xavier had the officials not screwed up. It has the two good wins that watermark its schedule in the Musketeers and Ohio State. If it doesn’t hit a skid in the Horizon, it’s going to get in. I don’t trust this team like I used to, though. Losses to Minnesota, Clemson, Georgetown and UAB.
