Butler captured a third straight Horizon League regular season championship last year and made its third straight NCAA Tournament appearance.  The Bulldogs were ranked in the “Top 25” (Associated Press and ESPN/USA Today) for 12 consecutive weeks, climbing as high as No. 11 in the nation.  Butler’s Matt Howard was named Horizon League Player of the Year, while Gordon Hayward was chosen as the league’s Newcomer of the Year.  Both were picked to the Horizon League preseason All-League first team, while sophomore Shelvin Mack was named to the preseason All-League second team.

Season ticket sales are up 27% from last year, and season packages are still available.  In addition to guaranteed seating for all of Butler’s home games, season ticket-holders have priority in purchasing tickets to selected road games, as well as post-season games.  Tickets can be purchased by visiting the Hinkle Fieldhouse ticket office or by calling 317-940-DOGS.
