March Madness has begun, and it’s everywhere you look on campus this week. Personally, you won’t see me a single day this week without some sort of Butler gear on that I purchased from the bookstore or without my Butler Bed Buddy. From sweatshirts to tshirts, snapback, and everything in between – March is here, and Butler pride is at an all-time high.
This is a big week for the university. From the “special announcement” that is planned this week to the game versus Bucknell on Thursday, it’d be an understatement for me to say that I’m excited to see what’s in store for the rest of the post-season tournament. I also got tickets to the game on Thursday at Rupp Arena in Lexington, so I’ll be seeing all of the action live as the Dawgs take on the Bisons! In order to get pumped up for the game, I like to rewatch this video of the top 27 Best Buzzer Beaters of all times, where yours truly wins both #1 & #2. Go Dawgs!
If you don’t really watch college basketball, then you don’t really know how the Butler Bulldogs throw down. Yesterday was the kickoff for the Atlantic 10 tournament, and Butler was seeded number 5, meaning we didn’t receive a bye round. Butler then played number 12 seed Dayton, and it was an intense game. I usually wouldn’t be able to watch games on TV, but because I was home on spring break I was due to having NBCSN! The game was intense, like I said prior, and I was nervous due to the fact that the last time we played Dayton Rotnei Clarke got hurt. It turns out that this game Rotnei scored the most points, though.
If you can't get to a tv, get live updates through the ESPN Score Center application!
It was a really close game, but the great Butler Bulldogs pulled out the win to play again today against La Salle, which will be an interesting game as well. If you get the opportunity, check it out on NBCSN or watch the live stream on the Atlantic 10’s website!
