The Butler Ugroup is on spring break in Philadelphia, but will return for complete Butler tournament coverage. Until then, here's a brief preview of the HL championship game.
What: Horizon League Championship Game
Where: Hinkle Fieldhouse--Indianapolis, IN
When: 9 p.m. EST
On Tuesday, Butler will look to finish off a three-game sweep of Cleveland State in the Horizon League Championship game. Check out our head-to-head player matchups from the February 27 Butler-Cleveland State match up here. In that game, Butler squeaked by the Vikings 58-56. Cleveland State will play with a ferocity unseen by Butler this year. For seniors Cedric Jackson and J'Nathan Bullock, it's the last chance to dance. Butler will make the tourney no matter what the outcome, but a win can greatly boost their seeding.
Prediction: Butler 54, Cleveland State 51
