The big news out of the Horizon League is that Butler lost to Evansville. At home. No really, this happened. Obviously, anything that the Bulldogs (now 3-2) do will be more important than anything else that happens in the ex-MCC this season, but it's worth pointing out that there are a pair of teams that are undefeated but probably wouldn't be expected to be. Loyola, who we'll be seeing this weekend, is 7-0. So is Cleveland State. Halfway ironically, Cleveland State looks like the kind of ball control/defense team that Butler was last season, and it would be fully completely ironic if this team wins the Horizon autobid. (No really, get accustomed to the idea.) The Vikings have beaten both Kent State and Akron of the MAC, two proud programs with a lot of recent championships, as well as an Iona team that might end up winning the MAAC.

Gary Waters' team goes for its eighth tonight against NEC champions Robert Morris. Mike Rice, who led the Colonials to two straight titles, took his services to Rutgers, where he's already felt the warm glow of the RLU. There are some familiar names on the roster, like Karon Abraham, the 6-0 sophomore who went nuts in the first round game against Villanova last year with his fearless freshman #superhoops. Like Cleveland State, this team has been putting up strong defensive numbers, but under new coach Andrew Toole, the offense has sputtered and suffered. RMU lost to that same Kent State team, and owns a pair of wins against Duquesne and Saint Peter's. So, 2-2. And against a schedule so far that's only included one higher power (Pitt), the team's shot 34 percent. That's in the bottom 10 of the entire country, but facts are useless in emergencies.
