You probably forgot this (if you even knew in the first place), but we're coming up on 10 years since the Midwestern Collegiate Conference changed its name to the Horizon League. The move was made to help the conference differentiate itself from other mid-major leagues. Looking back, you'd have to say it was a brilliant marketing move. Whoever made that decision should be hired by Jim Delany to come up with the names of the Big Ten's new divisions.
I might have ranked Butler on the heels of their rout of Cleveland State, but the close escape at home against Youngstown State two days later spooked me. The Bulldogs need to learn to bring their A game night in and night out, and not try to choose their spots.

SG/PG - Norris Cole, 6'2 Senior, Cleveland State
You can never have to many leaders on a team. Cole can create shots for teammates and create his own shot. He might struggle to score points on this squad, because so many others can, but he has played well enough this season to deserve recognition.
