• Butler hosts #8 Louisville tomorrow at Hinkle

    November 18, 2011 No comments

    Butler will continue a four-game homestand against the highest-ranked foe to visit Hinkle Fieldhouse in nearly two decades. The Bulldogs will host Top 10-ranked Louisville on Saturday, Nov. 19, at 2 p.m.

    The Cardinals, ranked No. 8 in the Associated Press national poll and No. 7 in the ESPN/USA Today poll, are making their first appearance at Hinkle Fieldhouse since 1973 and just their fifth visit ever.

    Head coach Rick Pitino’s squad is the highest-ranked team to play on Butler’s homecourt since 1992, when No. 5 North Carolina raced past the Bulldogs, 103-56.

    The Cardinals are off to a 2-0 start, winning their first two contests by an average margin of 27.5 points. Louisville led wire-to-wire in a victory over Tennessee-Martin and never trailed after the 17-minute mark of the first half in a 20-point win over Lamar.

    Butler bounced back from a season-opening overtime loss at Evansville with a 57-46 victory at home over Chattanooga on Tuesday. The Chattanooga contest was the first of four games the Bulldogs will play in the Hoosier Invitational, which concludes at Indiana on Sunday, Nov. 27.
