—In BracketBusters, the headliner was a flatliner. Butler won 70-53 and knocked Siena’s hopes for an at-large into the toilet. There’s not much else to say except that the Bulldogs can get as high as a 4-seed if they run the table. I may have been wrong about how good this team actually is. Gladly.
