    Ditto, I have no hope for Seton Hall. I'd like to see Creighton break through to the Sweet 16 this year, though. Maybe get Nova and Creighton in the Sweet 16 and see if someone else can go on a run (hopefully X).

    Totally agree. They are starting to feel like frauds who will be in a tight game with a 14/15 seed until Powell goes ballistic for a 3 minute stretch and then get beat soundly in round 2.

    I have no faith in them or Creighton until I see it happen.

    The problem with a lot of teams in the Big East is that they are all so heavily reliant on the the 3 ball going down and if it doesnít they are screwed. Thatís one thing for Xavier is that they obviously donít have to rely on the 3 ball. Last year in the tourney in the 4 losses the first weekend, the Big East teams combined for 36 of 127 threes for 28%.

    In the game yesterday, Georgetown was 10-15 on 3’s while Butler was 9-32. G-town took 17 less 3’s and made one more. Believe this is also your case and point.

    Yep. Itís crazy when teams keep hoisting them up. If itís not falling, get it inside. Problem is that teams like Butler, Marquette, and Creighton donít have much inside they can pound it into when you have to. I think teams have figured Butler out. Donít let Baldwin get in the lane and to the basket. Lay off of him and make him a jump shooter and if he hits a bunch of threes oh well. Heís a 31% three point shooter over his last two years and only 41% on 2ís this year, because of how teams are now guarding him. He has to get the basket to be successful.

    Butler was missing Thompson. He’s probably their most important player. It’s not a coincidence that our comeback started immediately after he went down

    Maybe but the guy canít shoot. They hoisted 32 threes. Georgetown has 5 scholarship players available. Butler has not played all that well for a while. Blown out at DePaul and have now lost to Providence and Georgetown at home in the past two weeks. They still have to go to Seton Hall, Creighton and Xavier.

    Also Butler’s two big men were 4 for 4 on the day. How can you hoist 32 three’s and only get 4 shots from you post players? That’s just bad coaching in my opinion. Georgetown basically had two big’s that could defend the post and one is a walk-on that had played in a total of 4 games and 10 minutes all year before yesterday.

    The problem is that they seem to think that they do.
