Butler Loses, Hinkle Sparkles as Indy Jewel on Super Bowl Saturday


The Butler Bulldogs basketball team may have fallen on relative hard times this season in comparison to their last two March showings, but you probably shouldn’t count out coach Brad Stevens’ crew just yet.   And, even though Butler took it on the chin against Detroit today, venerable old Hinkle  Fieldhouse played host to a sellout crowd of Super Bowl goers and sparkled as one of the true jewels on the Indy sports landscape.   How fitting that one of the city’s most remarkable landmarks got a little play during Napt0wn’s big weekend.   Kudos to all!
