Day after Christmas, Butler

If anything was gathered from Washington State’s loss to Butler in Saturday’s Diamond Head Classic title game, it’s this: When the Bulldogs (9-4) are hitting 11 or more 3s, consider it a death knell. And if the Cougars are shooting a paltry percentage ( 33.3 percent), atoning on the other end of the floor will be a necessity– giving up 84 points won’t cut it. Butler showed resemblance of the national runner-up squad sans Gordon Hayward (No. 9 pick in the ’10 draft by Utah) and won its 27th straight game when  hitting 11 or more 3s, going 11-for-27 against the Cougars (10-2).  We have a staff/wire sport on the game here and The Indianapolis Star has its game story here. The Honolulu Advertiser also  covered the title game and the Spokesman-Review monitored it, too.
