Here's the thread for all of our college basketball players this year, besides our other team threads. Rotnei Clarke got off to a great start for his new team, the Butler Bulldogs. Clarke has moved to the point this year for the Bulldogs, but still can still shoot the ball, scoring 21 points on 8/16 shooting. Clarke scored Butler's first 12 points of the contest before going to the bench with foul trouble. Freshman sharpshooter Kellen Dunham picked up the slack for Clarke, scoring 18 points, second on the team behind Clarke. Big man Andrew Smith only played 9 minutes, as he was very limited today by foul trouble. Butler beat Elon 74-59, and have a caste matchup with Xavier on Tuesday. This year, Butler starts three whites, and gives playing time to several more off of the bench. The Bulldogs are definitely a team to support this year, especially in the A-10.

Also, a great performance was put in by Ukrainian center Alex Len of Maryland. Len dominated the affletes of Kentucky on National TV, scoring a double double with 23 points and 12 rebounds. Kyle Wiltjer was Kentucky leading scorer with 19 points. Creighton forward Doug McDermott had a double double against North Texas with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Gonzaga seems to have found their next great big man in the Polish freshman Przemek Karnowski. In his first college game, Karnowski put up 22 points in only 20 minutes, on 10/16 shooting.
