The Bulldogs' Sweet 16 trip last season was no fluke; in Graves, Green and Betko they have perhaps the savviest backcourt trio in the country. Graves, Butler's leading scorer, was second in the nation in free throw shooting; while team assist leader Mike Green, a Philadelphia product, brings an East Coast toughness to the point. Betko, a glue guy who transferred to the Bulldogs from Clemson in 2004, was recently granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA and will be a valuable part of the attack.
