Seton Hall didn't have any visiting media other than radio crew. Made for a pretty short news conference with Kevin Willard. He didn't mind.

Michael Pointer

One thing I miss about covering the NBA: Coaches were in interview room same time after every game. In college hoops, ya never know.

Michael Pointer

This was a weird game, but in the end, #Butler got the blowout it looked like it would get at the beginning.

Final: #Butler 77, Seton Hall 57. Butler is 15-6, 5-3 in Big East.

Michael Pointer

My apologies for not having a #Butler q-and-a before the Seton Hall game. Promise we will have one this week, either Wednesday or Thursday.

Michael Pointer

#Butler with 16 assists against just four turnovers today. Speaks for itself. Bulldogs lead Seton Hall 71 -49, 3:58 left.

CJ Miles (left groin strain) is OUT for the #Pacers. Rookie Aaron Gordon getting first start of his pro career for #Magic

Michael Pointer

#Butler fans: I had to take a step away for a couple of minutes to talk to a Butler official. What did Mobley do on the flagrant?

Michael Pointer

Remember when we said Seton Hall has just one timeout left? Made it tough for coach Kevin Willard to call a timeout during that run. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Kameron Woods has a big-time drive and basket and free throw to make the score 37-37. It has been all #Butler since.

Michael Pointer

Former #Butler players Erik Fromm and Andrew Smith -- who has battled some serious health issues -- addressing crowd during the break.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 48, Seton Hall 39, 11:52 left. Bulldogs on a 14-2 run after it looked like Seton Hall was taking control of game.

Michael Pointer

Atmosphere has totally changed in the last two minutes. #Butler leads 41-37, 13:20 left.

Michael Pointer

Holtmann going with Jackson Davis in a tight game for one of the first times. This will be interesting. #Butler

Michael Pointer

Something to watch: Seton Hall just called timeout after failing to get the ball inbounds. Pirates have just one left with 15:58 remaining.

Michael Pointer

There's a bad feeling in Hinkle Fieldhouse right now. This game has really turned. Going 4-for-15 from the line will do that. #Butler

Michael Pointer

#Butler 34, Seton Hall 34, 15:59. Bulldogs have missed two more FTs this half. Just hit with three fouls on one Seton Hall possession.

Michael Pointer

#Butler played some of its best basketball of the season in the first eight minutes. Should be up by more than 4. Got to make those FTs.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 32, Seton Hall 28. Barlow hits a 3 to take some sting out of what had been an awful final two minutes for Butler.

Michael Pointer

You saw this coming. #Butler didn't distance itself from Seton Hall, Pirates now on a 8-0 run. Bulldogs lead 29-28, 23.7 seconds in half.

Michael Pointer

Someone watching the #Butler game on television want to explain why the officials went to the monitor here?

Michael Pointer

Officials just awarded Gibbs a 3 after looking at replay. #Butler 27, Seton Hall 18. That stepback fadeaway by Gibbs was a thing of beauty.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 27, Seton Hall 17, 3:47 left. It should be much more. Bulldogs are 2-for-9 from the line.

Michael Pointer

Only damper on this day so far: #Butler's free-throw shooting stinks to high heaven.

Michael Pointer

Maybe even more important than #Butler's offensive prowess is that Seton Hall's Sterling Gibbs been a non-factor. He can't even get a shot.

Michael Pointer

Andrew Chrabascz, this is your day. He's got 13 points already, #Butler leads 25-13 over Seton Hall with 7:54 left.

Michael Pointer

Seton Hall coach Kevin Willard just told to "Get back in the box" by one of the officials. Very upset with a no-call on that rebound.

Michael Pointer

#Butler 19, Seton Hall 6, 11:59 left. Bulldogs are 7-for-11 from the field with six assists and no turnovers. That's pretty good.

Michael Pointer

Not quite a sellout today at Hinkle, but close. Upper bleachers are close to full. Guessing around 8,800. #Butler

Michael Pointer

#Butler 15, Seton Hall 6, 13:38 left in first half. Some really good patience by Etherington to kick it back to Dunham for an open 3.

Michael Pointer

Be interesting to hear what #Butler saw to establish the post so early with Chrabascz. That was a priority from the start.

Michael Pointer

Great start for the Bulldogs. #Butler 12, Seton Hall 6, 15:20 left in first half. Chrabascz with seven points.

Michael Pointer

Seton Hall's jerseys do not have names on the back. instead, it just reads "Pirates" across the top. #Butler

Michael Pointer

#Butler normal starting five: Barlow, Jones, Dunham, Chrabascz, Woods.

We're live from Hinkle Fieldhouse. Unfortunately, it's a cloudy, rainy day in Indianapolis, so no sun streaming through the windows. #Butler

On the air now: @IndianaStateWBB (13-5) and @UNIPantherWBB (9-8) from the Hulman Center.

Greg Rappaport

At least it touched the rim tho

Greg Rappaport

Yikes, ugly stretch of offense from Bulls. Hinrich follows two air balls with a 25 second, no pass, long jumper that clanks off the rim.

Mark Montieth

One on One w/Scot Pollard starts at 11am on @1070thefan and Fm107.5. Or on 1070thefan.com. Talking Pacers seasons, movie career.

Candace Buckner

George Hill, after 20 mins last night, experienced some soreness today but expected to play similar role vs #Magic on Sunday

Candace Buckner

CJ Miles (sore left groin) is doubtful for tomorrow vs #Magic. Miles said he did shoot around s little today but felt same soreness.

Scott Agness

Great stat via @BigTenNetwork: Since 1947, every four-year #iubb player has played on a nationally ranked team.

Greg Rappaport

So wait, did he just find the unifying theory?

Bill Belichick has said more in this presser than all season long. #coachedupbylawyers #DeflateGate

Greg Rappaport

We are approaching greatest press conference of all time.

Michael Pointer

Little something to preview the Seton Hall game: #Butler's Alex Barlow keeps proving doubters wrong.indy.st/1JBhWVD via @indystar

Scott Agness

Belichick has said a whole lot of words to essentially say nothing… #DeflateGate

Greg Rappaport

Bill Belichick gave me the first D I ever got on a report card. But his class was so boring!

Greg Rappaport

During hostage situations, the police should just pump in the sound of a Belichick presser so everyone will be asleep within minutes.

Mark Montieth

Commentators always point out the smart moves by coaches. But never the dumb ones.

Paul George

Lol deadeye! RT @Ronnie2K: “@Paul George: Klay had that 2k perfect release on them boys lol” Hah and no shooter fatigue

#Butler fans: Sunday's game is on Fox Sports Net. That means Fox Sports Indiana here in Indy. In other areas, check your listings.

Michael Pointer

Stan the Man and Mr. Cub. Sorry Yankees and Red Sox fans, but no legends meant more to their fans bases than those guys. Class.

Michael Pointer

Like Stan Musial, Ernie Banks got the Presidential Medal of Freedom not long before he died. Very glad they both did.

Michael Pointer

Cubs and Cardinals fans like to argue (I know firsthand), but each organization has lost their greatest player during the last two years.

Some very sad news out of Chicago tonight. Ernie Banks, "Mr. Cub," dead at 83 indy.st/1JwQI2o via @indystar

Big ups to my bro today always looking out @ICEWATER33!! Pops not on the trece train yet lol instagram.com/p/yORBCWnMiM/

Btw, with his 6th technical foul tonight, Frank Vogel now tied for league lead among coaches (Steve Kerr, Tom Thibodeau the other leaders)

Candace Buckner

Luis Scola with the cold hard truth: “The truth is, we lost. The truth is we (were) behind. The truth is, we need to win games.”

Candace Buckner

Miles: "I started feeling it get worse and that's when the timeout came…so I had to say something." Said strain affected running & jumping

Candace Buckner

C.J. Miles said he felt the strain in his left groin early in the game. Played a few more mins before telling training staff abt the pain

Greg Rappaport

Other NBA things: CHI responds in a huge way beating Mavs and Spurs b2b. Cavs have it all figured out. Knicks winning games?

Candace Buckner

George Hill second guesses and says he should've taken one more dribble so that Watson would've gotten an open look from the corner 3

Greg Rappaport

Rough loss for the Pacers, but George Hill's team-high +14 in just 20 minutes of play is a monstrous bright spot amid a tough streak.

Candace Buckner

Vogel on comeback: "We were very displeased w/ how we played in the 1st half. I challenged them early on to get a little angry & we did."

Candace Buckner

Anybody has video of that play with David West under the rim? The No-Foul play

Candace Buckner

In and out jumper from C.J. Watson on the baseline at the buzzer. #Pacers lost 89-87 to the #Heat. 7 straight Ls, toughest one yet

Candace Buckner

#Pacers get quick two from George Hill. Down 88-87 with 6.9 to go in the game.
