Butler Bulldogs Tickets for Sale

The only place that Butler may have a minor issue is with their depth in the backcourt. Since Nored is not much of a scorer, the Bulldogs will be looking for somebody to step up and provide a spark off the bench. Zach Hahn did an acceptable job in that role last year, connecting on 41 percent of his three-point attempts, but Shawn Vanzant and Grant Leiendecker both have the potential to play more significant roles if they can become more consistent scorers.

There is seemingly nothing to stop this talented team from winning at least 25 games again in 2009-2010. Look for them to cruise through the Horizon League, but hope that the conference does better as a whole in order for Butler to gain a higher seed once Tournament time rolls around.

Fans need to fill the Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis and support their team during what should be yet another great season. Get your Butler Bulldogs tickets now and be there to share the excitement and root your school to victory this year.

The Butler Bulldogs have only lost a total of ten games during the first two years under coach Brad Stevens. An average of only five losses a season could be even more impressive if Butler keeps it up for a third straight year – something that is entirely possible since the Bulldogs will see the return of the entire team which was seeded ninth in last season's NCAA Tournament.

Starters Shelvin Mack and Ronald Nored were big surprises for Butler last year, as nobody truly expected the freshmen to step in and contribute as soon as they did. Mack is the more dynamic scorer of the pair, having averaged 12 points per game, while being second on the team with 2 three-pointers a game. Additionally, Mack also handed out more than 3 assists while snagging over 4 rebounds per game. Nored started all 32 games, and while not the scorer that Mack is, he is a solid ball handler who will continue to get better with time. The most experienced Bulldog of the backcourt is senior Willie Veasley, a versatile 6-3 defensive specialist who also averaged 9 points and over 4 rebounds last season.

If you count Gordon Hayward as a frontcourt player, then Butler has two superstars there. The 6-9 wing was yet another freshman who surpassed expectations with 13 points and 6 rebounds per game, while proving to be an excellent outside shooter. It was Hayward's presence which made things much easier for Matt Howard, the Horizon League's Newcomer of the Year two years ago and Player of the Year last season, when he led the team with nearly 15 points, 7 rebounds, and almost 2 blocks per contest. Look for Howard to be Butler's go-to guy once again, but also do not be surprised if that changes as the other Bulldogs continue to gain experience.

With nine players back who averaged ten minutes or more per game for Butler, it may be difficult for the newcomers to make much of an immediate impact. However, the Bulldogs could always use more size, which is something that should be provided by Andrew Smith and Emerson Kampen. Smith, a true freshman, is 6-11 and 239 pounds, making him the biggest player on the team, and Kampen, a walk-on who turned down scholarship offers from other schools, is 6-9. Another newcomer is redshirt guard Chase Stigall who could be a steady contributor in the near future as well.
