Butler favored by BPI, but not Medcalf
After starting the season with eight straight victories, Butler dropped its first game to Indiana St. on Wednesday night. ESPN's BPI has the Bulldogs getting back on track vs. the No. 22 Bearcats this weekend, but Myron Medcalf disagrees. Medcalf's weekend picks
The Big East needs not prove itself, but three of its top teams (Villanova, Xavier and Butler) face teams from other power conferences. A sweep would give the conference even more credibility.
Bearcats jump to bracket's No. 5 line
Joe Lunardi moves Cincinnati from a No. 7 following its overtime win at Iowa State. Wisconsin drops from a No. 4 while Butler and Purdue stay put this week. Bracketology
Two weeks after his twin brother Bryson led Fort Wayne to an upset of then-No. 3 Indiana, Brenton Scott did the same for Indiana State against No. 16 Butler, hitting the game-winning free throw.
Brenton Scott made one of two free throws with 0.8 seconds left and finished with 25 points to help Indiana State upset No. 16 Butler 72-71 on Wednesday night.
Myron Medcalf ESPN Staff Writer
Another upset in Indiana as Indiana State KO's No. 16 Butler. Brenton Scott finished with 24 points, 9 rebounds, 3 assists and 2 steals, and he also made the late, game-winning free throw that sealed the 72-71 win. In late November, his twin brother, Bryson Scott, led Fort Wayne with 18 points, 12 rebounds, 3 assists and 3 steals in his team's upset of Indiana. Not a bad stretch for the Scott family.
Butler rising in Power Rankings
Tyler Lewis has been the difference so far for 8-0 Butler. His shooting average has improved from 39 percent last season to 64 percent so far this year. Power Rankings
Kelan Martin finished with 30 points and six rebounds, and Tyler Wideman added 10 points and 10 rebounds, and No. 18 Butler beat Central Arkansas 82-58 on Saturday.
Bracketology: Butler rises to No. 5 seed
After Butler's 7-0 start -- including back-to-back wins against Pac-12 foes -- the Bulldogs rise to a No. 5 seed in Joe Lunardi's latest projection. Bracketology
Sure, Kentucky hasn't lost yet, but you might be surprised which other teams are still unbeaten -- and which have the best chance for a long run.
Butler's win at Utah makes the Big East's top four teams -- Villanova, Xavier, Creighton and the Bulldogs -- a combined 25-0 this season.
Kelan Martin scored 18 points as No. 18 Butler remained undefeated with a 68-59 victory over Utah on Monday night. The loss was the first of the season for the Utes.
Bulldogs leap into rankings at No. 18
Butler beat then-No. 8 Arizona to win the Las Vegas Invitational last week. That marked the third straight year the Bulldogs have knocked off a top-10 team. Power Rankings
��� Kelan Martin had 16 points, while Andrew Chrabascz had 14 points and seven rebounds to lead Butler to a 69-65 victory over No. 8 Arizona on Friday night in the championship game of the Contin
Senior Andrew Chrabascz had his second career double-double, Tyler Lewis scored 15 points and Butler pulled away late for a 76-66 win over Vanderbilt on Thursday night in the Las Vegas Invitation
