Butler Bulldogs

2012-13: 27-9 (11-5 in Atlantic 10)
In-conference offense: 1.04 points per possession (10th, A-10)
In-conference defense: 0.99 points per possession (3rd, A-10)

To label Butler's upcoming season one of transition would be a fairly significant understatement. More accurately, the Bulldogs' 2013-14 campaign may be defined more or less entirely by transitions of one kind or another.
