News On The Horizon 2/6/2010

If Butler can run the table in the Horizon, which isnt out of the question, and get the win vs. Siena, where would you guess their seeding would be? That would put them at a 20 game win streak, which I understand would be difficult to get to.

Not out of the question at all, especially since they have the Wisconsin road trip out of the way. I don't know about seeding, especially since they've received unfavorable consideration from the Committee these last few years.

Wright State @ #15 Butler – 8 pm on ESPN2 (**)

This may not be the most glamorous matchup on a busy Saturday, but this will be one of the only opportunities for fans to watch Butler in the Horizon League all year. Luckily for fans, the conference opponent is a respectable one. Wright State has won four games in a row, and is second in the conference behind the Bulldogs. Butler has a winning streak of their own, as they have won 11 consecutive games by not giving up more than 67 points in any of the contests. Both teams are among the top in defenses in the country as the Raiders surrender 60 points per game and Butler gives up 61.5 points per contest. During WSU’s current win streak, they gave up 48 points in one game and only 43 in another, and if they keep future NBA draft pick Gordon Hayward below 15 points, they will have a chance to win this game. Perhaps the biggest disadvantage to Wright State is that the game will be played at Hinkle Fieldhouse, where Butler is undefeated on the year and historically tough. Butler has seven games left (including a BracketBuster game against Siena) and if they win out the Bulldogs could sneak into a #4 NCAA seed.
