Here are some more game images from Thursday's exhibition college basketball game between Butler University and Hanover College at Hinkle Fieldhouse on the Butler campus. Butler won the game 80-41. The lead image (top) is a three-frame sequence of Hanover's Ryan Nowicki of Carmel, Ind., at the end of a fast-break layup after he picked up a loose ball at the Butler end of the court. Nowick is a graduate of Guerin Catholic High School in Noblesville, Ind.
I'm going to try to devote the next post to the pageantry that visitors and fans enjoy when they attend a Butler game -- the band, the cheerleaders, the dancers, the appearance of Blue II and the walking (human) Bulldog mascots.
