During yesterdays game against Dayton, Butler's leading scorer was fouled hard. He hit the pads under the basket and lay on the floor for several minutes because he had lost feeling in his arms and legs. He was put on a stretcher and carried out. Further examination shows no nerve damage or broken bones. Listed as 50/50 for the game against Gonzaga.
