News On The Horizon 1/17/2011

College Basketball On TV For January 16, 2011--Blogging the Bracket

Butler Bulldogs at Wright St. Raiders, WNDY/Horizon League Network/ESPN3/Full Court (6 p.m. ET)
The Bulldogs look to sweep their road trip after they hammered Detroit Friday night. The Raiders meanwhile fell to Valparaiso, who currently sits in a tie atop the Horizon with Butler. Keep an eye on Khyle Marshall and Andrew Smith, who are really coming into their own in the frontcourt, providing Matt Howard with some needed help. prediction: Bulldogs 65-62, 61 poss.

Valparaiso Crusaders at Detroit Titans, FS Detroit/FCS Atlantic/Horizon League Network (1 p.m. ET)
The Crusaders look to keep pace (or even pass) Butler in the Horizon race. Valpo will have to deal with Eli Holman inside this afternoon. The Titan big man was someone Butler didn't need to contend with in their easy win Friday. prediction: Crusaders 71-70, 70 poss.

But those were balanced out somewhat by Loyola's second conference win of the year (which came in Milwaukee, where Butler shockingly lost by 26 earlier this month) and North Florida's third league victory.

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Oh, what a week. Duke goes down just when talk began of its invincibility, Hofstra continues to rise up, there is a monster growing in the MAC and Butler is back on a roll in the Horizon League.
Boogie Man I: The saying goes "let sleeping dogs lie." So the Horizon League can blame Milwaukee for kicking the Butler Bulldogs awake with a 24-point upset victory on Jan. 3. Since that setback, the defending Horizon League champs have taken their biggest threats -- Cleveland State and Detroit -- to the woodshed.

The Vikings ran into the awakened monster on the road and lost by 23 points. The Titans had the home court against Butler, and lost by the same 23 points.

"Butler is back, and their confidence is soaring," CSU head coach Gary Waters said after Saturday's win over Youngstown State. The Vikings get a rematch with the Bulldogs on Feb. 5. "We're going to have to deal with that."
