So this is a little surprising. The Cardinals only played an average half, yet lead the Bulldogs of Butler by seven. Freshman Zavier Turner is doing it again, scoring eight points on 2-6 shooting. Majok Majok has seven points and five rebounds, well on his way to a double double. Quinten Payne has also been a bright spot scoring five points and dishing out three assists.
It wasn't all great for the Cardinals as they've turned over the ball eight times. Butler hasn't been much better, turning it over seven times. Chris Bond is the only Cardinal with two fouls, so that's a positive sign.
Khyle Marshall leads the Bulldogs with eight points.
This would be a great win to start the season for James Whitford. It would energize the fan base and maybe take their minds off football for just a few hours. Cardinal fans have a lot to be excited about, and hopefully the second half goes as well as the first.
