Watch Out for Butler
Earlier I posted highlights of Butler guard Dontae Coleman. But the Butler Bulldogs squad is far from a one man show. The team is as balanced as any in the area. Senior Ronald Jones provides strength, experience, and leadership inside. And senior point guard Marquis Burton is a good ball handler and shooter who understands how to play the game. These three are joined by a cast of inside and outside players who make the Bulldogs a deep and diverse team. I didn't expect Butler to handle Spring Valley so easily in Saturday's scrimmage. I am looking forward to seeing the Bulldogs in the Thanksgiving Classic (November 23-24). I specifically look forward to seeing the Saturday game against the Laney Wildcats (the subject of my next post).
