I did expect the Gameday crew to make a trip to Hinkle and give Butler a primetime stage following their run to the national title game. The ratings for a team like Detroit, Wright State or Valparaiso at 9 PM on ESPN just wouldn’t have been there, though.

Morning Five: 08.18.10 Edition--Rush The Court

We had the privilege of seeing all six of Butler’s NCAA Tournament games live last year, and in each game more than the last, we came away impressed with the poise and abilities of the Bulldogs’ Shelvin Mack. Luke Winn writes that Mack, more than any other player on the summer circuit of camps and USA Basketball, has elevated himself to the point where he’s getting rave reviews from veteran guards in the League. Case in point: Mack was chosen over quite a few big names for his spot on the USA Select team, players such as Scoop Jardine, Scotty Hopson, Jacob Pullen and Jimmer Fredette. Could Mack, Ronald Nored and Matt Howard propel Butler toward another Final Four next year? They may be closer than conventional wisdom says even after losing star forward Gordon Hayward.

• Duke, Butler and Michigan State, all of whom made it to Indy for the Final Four last year, are featured. Butler’s involved in the best game, playing at Louisville in the Cards’ shiny, new arena. (I think, the only arena in the country that includes an exclamation point.)
