The Chaminade Silverswords have had issues against the better teams on their schedule, and I doubt things are going to improve with them playing another game with no rest. The Butler Bulldogs are better than what they've shown up to this point, it's just a matter of catching a break schedule wise. Butler should roll in this contest. Give me Butler and whatever the line is.
