MyINDY-TV To Broadcast 13 Butler Basketball Games

For the second season in a row, MyINDY-TV, channel 23 will bring Butler Bulldog Basketball to local television viewers all across Central Indiana, with 13 LIVE game broadcasts from historic Hinkle Fieldhouse as well as on the road. 

“The Butler Bulldog roster is loaded with talent again this season, and will continue to be one of the elite programs in the NCAA,” said Jeff White, president and general manager of MyINDY-TV.  “Central Indiana viewers can share another thrilling season with front row seats on MyINDY-TV.  The caliber of this team and the tradition and quality of Butler’s program are among the best in the nation.” 

The team is ranked in the TOP 15 of most 2009 preseason NCAA Basketball polls.  The Bulldogs return everyone this year from a team that went 26-6 last season.  Butler also captured the Horizon League regular season championship and advanced to the NCAA Tournament for a third consecutive year.

Butler is coached by 33-year-old Zionsville, Indiana native Brad Stevens.
In his third season as Butler Head Coach, Stevens stands second on the NCAA Division I list for “Best Career Starts, Two Seasons” with a 56-10 record.  He became the first men’s basketball coach in Butler history to lead the Bulldogs to 30 wins.

“We’re excited to be on MyINDY-TV again this year,” said Stevens.  “Our fans appreciated the broadcasts last year, and we’re looking forward to extending our partnership to 13 games this season.”
