Did you know: Butler became only the fourth Horizon League team to get through conference play undefeated and the first team to do so since the 1995-96 season.
Outlook: Although Butler has won or shared each of the past four regular season titles, the Bulldogs have only captured one of the past three conference tournaments. They appear to have a great chance to capture a second one this season considering no other team had less than six losses in league play. Second-place Wright State earned the other bye to the semifinals, but it was actually seventh-seeded Detroit that played Butler the toughest in the regular season.
