With last year's core mostly intact and another big name making his debut, Butler looks to remain a key factor in the Big East.

It only takes one word to describe last year's Butler Bulldogs: grit. They fell to No. 3 seed Notre Dame in the Round of 32 in March, but considering that pre-season expectations had the Bulldogs pegged as a fringe tournament team, the 2014-15 season was a massive success for first-year coach Chris Holtmann.

Roosevelt Jones, Kellen Dunham and Andrew Chrabascz are returning starters from last season. But who fills out the rest of the starting five? Mike Murtaugh over at Big East Coast Bias takes a look.
