March Madness 2010 Bracket Risers:Butler

Butler the number 15 team in the country knocked off 63-58 in Indianapolis for their 11th straight win. Butler is currently 12-0 in the Horizon League and 19-4 overall and we just can't decide if we should be moving Butler into a top 4 seed for the 2010 March Madness bracket. It will be hard to ignore them if they run the table in the Horizon League, and we will likely have to give them the benefit of the doubt and moving them up however we still have doubts about them being an elite team with losses to Minnesota,Georgetown,UAB, and Clemson. Butler has a signature win over Ohio State but you could argue at that win not being that impressive as Ohio State was without the services of player of the year candidate Evan Turner for that game. Butler is led by Sophomore forward Gordon Hayward who averages 16.2 points per game and adds to that 7.9 rebounds and 1.7 assists. Butler keeps winning but frankly we don't see that continuing during March.
