All Time NCAA Tournament Studs and Duds
#6- Stud- Butler
If there is ever a player who proves that mid-majors can hold their own against big dogs, Butler is that player. He was notoriously dubbed the “Bulldog” during the NCAA tournament of 2010 for his ability to deliver a hefty blow to the opposition despite his frail and boyish looks. He was ranked as the No. 8 seed during the year, which he had improved to No. 5 in little over a year later. He also has 10-2 tournament record during the 2010-11 seasons and earned him a promotion to Atlantic 10 in 2013.
