It is so great to see the Dawgs out-rebounding teams this year. The addition of Howard has made a world of difference for Butler on both offense and defense. Props to Veasley as well, he is a beast on the boards and can jump out of the gym. I think he'll be a heavy contributor next year. Loved seeing him swat the ball into the stands vs. YSU!

What may really be shocking is next year, when our frontcourt will likely be the team's strength. Howard, Veasley, Jukes, Cranston and Butcher will all be young but formidible. Look out HL!

Howard is quickly (if not is right now) our best overall player. It will be amazing to see him develop over the next 3 years.

Howard is great, but lets not get crazy, Mike Green is our best player. He is one of the top handful of point guards in the country, it is no shame playing second fiddle to that - especially as a true freshman!

Just wait until Shelvin Mack and Garrett Butcher get into the fold!

Mike Green, Matt Howard and Pete Campbell are playing at the top of their game. If AJ Graves would just get in gear ... BTW, Shelvin Mack is going to be totally awesome.

THE NICE THING ABOUT MATT HOWARD WILL BE THE REMAINDER OF THIS SEASON AND THE NEXT 3 YEARS.
NO ONE YEAR IN COLLEGE AND OFF TO THE NBA.

We need to run more set plays for Pete. Seems like he's always getting the ball as a 2nd-3rd option. When he's on it, for the love of god, get him the darn ball....

And when he is off, it isn't for very long so yes, involve him more offensively. Plus, is he keeps banging away from three and Mike keeps effectively getting into the lane, easy shots will come for AJ, and it only takes a couple to get him back into a good rhythm. How dangerous can this team be with all FOUR of those guys on the top of their game?

Good luck today Dawgs!

Let's just hope AJ's foot is getting better. When he's 100%, it should be a really fun time. Hopefully that will happen before the Big Dance.

Great win for the Bulldogs today and it was wonderful to see AJ get back on track. Looks like BU will be moving up in the national rankings this week.
