A Wizard On Butler Basketball

Updated: April 7, 2010

As previously mentioned, Cedric Jackson, who signed with the Washington Wizards from the D-League on March 31st, went to Cleveland State. The Vikings are in the same conference as the Butler Bulldogs, whom they beat for the Horizon League title in 2009 to advance to the NCAA Tournament; as a 13-seed, Cleveland State won its first round game against 4-seed Wake Forest. But in that ’09 Horizon championship game, Butler’s Gordon Hayward had seven points,  Matt Howard had 14 and Shelvin Mack had 18. Meanwhile, Cedric Jackson threw up 19 points, eight assists and seven rebounds … and got the 57-54 win.

His opinion being qualified, I briefly chatted with Cedric about Butler and the 2010 NCAA championship before Tuesday’s game against the Golden State Warriors.

    It was unfortunate that hard foul by duke wasn’t a momentum changer for Butler. Everyone was rooting for Butler, I think they felt the pressure, they were real tight down the stretch.
    They let Duke handcheck them out of the lane, when they should have gone at Duke harder forcing the call, or tried offensive flopping.
