Butler Finally Has Shots, Balls Drop
Just a few notes about this one, and I'll try not to piss on our parade too badly. According to the CBS stats (ESPN refuses to update their box scores), Butler actually shot well, which is good because his assist to turnover ratio was 0:5. No assists? Stop passing to Diebler (another onefer... performance). They played pretty well down the stretch and made sure to get quality shots off, except for a certain someone who decided to fire up a three for no reason, I think we know who I mean. Only 7 players actually had real playing time in this one so our lack of depth will continue to hurt us as the season gets this late. (Hill and Lauderdale totaled 5 minutes)
The most entertaining part of the game was when Erin Andrews asked Thad what he thought about the game clock not working and he told her that they practice like that and did it on purpose...she of course believed him, because we all know hot women have no sense of sarcasm. It's nice to actually win a nationally televised game. I think that's the first one I've seen them win in 2008. Don't worry though, we're still a miracle away from making the NCAA.
