No school takes greater pride in its basketball team. After all, there isn't a whole lot else to be consumed with in terms of Butler's other athletic teams, at least from a national standpoint.

And yet, at various points in the last two years, there has been controversy on campus that the students themselves aren't attending as many games, as say—Indiana, Duke or any other prestigious program that comes to mind. Games are free for students, unlike at many other schools.
