68 Reasons To Be Excited For The 2012 College Basketball Season--YardBarker

20. The End Of The Run For The Butler Bulldogs?: Ok, so it probably isn’t, and for all we know I fully expect to look up in March and see the Bulldogs in another Final Four. Brad Stevens is just that good.

But at the very least, hey, at least we don’t have to deal with Matt Howard anymore!

9. Butler going for a third straight title game: Brad Stevens lost a lottery pick and still returned to the national title game. This time he lost a second-rounder and an overseas guy, so why can't he shock the world again? That's an unfair expectation since he'll now deal with life without Gordon Hayward, Matt Howard and Shelvin Mack. But the Bulldogs won't drop off the map, either, despite what a preseason loss to a Division II school might suggest. -- J.G.

Tipoff: 7 p.m., Wolstein Center.

Update: This is the second local exhibition game for John Carroll, which lost at Akron last week, 84-62. CSU has a combination of old and new. Five starters return, including 6-4 D'Aundray Brown, who missed last season with a wrist injury. The new include four freshmen, including 6-7 Anton Grady from Cleveland Central Catholic. Another new face, 5-9 freshman guard Charlie Lee, has been compared to former CCC standout Earl Boykins, who played at Eastern Michigan.

Next for CSU: Sunday at Vanderbilt, 2.
