Research Notes

  • This is the first time that an AP No. 1 team has lost on December 15.

  • Butler's 42 points in the paint Saturday are the most paint points allowed by Indiana this season and third-most allowed by the Hoosiers in the last two seasons. Only Kentucky (twice last season) has scored more paint points against Indiana in a game since the start of the 2011-12 season.

  • After trailing by 7 with 2:24 remaining in the 2nd half, Indiana's offense was incredibly efficient to end the half. It scored at least a point on six of their final seven possessions, capping regulation with a game-tying 3-pointer with 10 seconds remaining. On the other hand, Butler only scored at least a point on three of its final seven possessions in regulation, turning it over twice.

  • Butler outscored Indiana 42-32 in the paint and 27-17 in second-chance points. Indiana entered the game ranked in the top 10 among Power 6 schools in Points in Paint PG margin and 2nd-chance Points PG margin.

  • Butler's Roosevelt Jones with a monster effort before fouling out today vs No. 1 Indiana: 16 points, 12 rebounds and 7 assists.The last player to hit those thresholds in a win over the AP No. 1 team was Utah's Andre Miller on March 28, 1998 (16 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists) in the Final Four against North Carolina.Like Saturday's game, that was also on a neutral floor (Alamodome).
