Rookies’ colleges struggling this season

It’s been a doubly difficult stretch for Utah rookies Gordon Hayward and Jeremy Evans.

Not only have the Jazz struggled recently, but so have their colleges. Butler is 14-7 overall and 6-3 in the Horizon League after an overtime loss at home to Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

Last season, Hayward led the Bulldogs to a record of 33-5, including 18-0 in the conference.

Butler reached the NCAA championship game, where it lost to Duke, 61-59.

"They’re frustrated," Hayward said. "I talked those guys a lot and they are frustrated just like [the Jazz] are frustrated. ...

"But they’ll be fine. They still have the tournament. Hopefully, they can pick it up when the tournament season comes around."
