I think this has the makings of a great game. Indiana and Butler match up very well with one another and I've got my fingers crossed for a great atmosphere at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. Indiana probably needs to win at least one of Butler / G'Town and given G'Town's size along with the game being in NYC (as opposed to Indianapolis) might make it the more difficult assignment of the two.
