BUTLER: Last season: 25-9; lost to North Carolina in NCAA Tournament regional semifinals
Who's gone: F Andrew Chrabascz, G Avery Woodson, G Tyler Lewis.
Who's back: F Kelan Martin. After spending part of last season coming off the bench, Butler's top scorer (16.0 points) will become a full-fledged starter this season ' and one of the team's leaders. G Kamar Baldwin made a huge impression as a freshman after cracking the starting lineup. Look for the stronger sophomore to improve on his averages of 10.6 points and 3.7 rebounds in what could be a breakthrough season. F Tyler Wideman. The 6-foot-8 senior has been one of the team's most consistent rebounders and his final college season could prove to be his best yet. He averaged 7.2 points and 5.0 rebounds last season.
Who's new: G Paul Jorgensen. The former George Washington player could be next in a long line of transfers who have had an immediate impact in the Bulldogs' backcourt. He won't beat out Baldwin, but he could help solidify a young backcourt that needs experienced hands.
The Skinny: Butler may not be the same without Chrabascz and Lewis. But this seems to be the story almost every season, and the Bulldogs usually prove they can overcome the low preseason expectations. Don't be surprised if it happens again. Jordan begins his first season at his alma mater with plenty of talent, enough experience and a realistic shot of taking Butler to a fourth consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance.
PURDUE: Last season: 27-8; lost to Kansas in NCAA Tournament regional semifinals
Who's gone: F Caleb Swanigan, F Basil Smotherman, G Spike Albrecht.
Who's back: F Vincent Edwards. The senior preseason all-conference selection might be the Boilermakers' best overall player. He can shoot (48.6 percent), score (12.6), rebound (4.9) and defend. G Carsen Edwards. As a freshman, the other Edwards ' no relation to Vincent ' led Purdue in assists (133) and was tied for the team-high in steals (36). This year, he'll be asked to increase his scoring average from 10.6 points. C Isaac Haas. The 7-foot-2 senior averaged 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds in just 19.5 minutes last season. With Swanigan off to the NBA, Haas is likely to log more minutes if he stays out of foul trouble.
Who's new: F Matt Haarms. The redshirt freshman used last season to try and add strength. Now the 7-foot-3 Dutch native could fill the role Haas had over the last couple of seasons off the bench. If the Boilermakers play Haas and Haarms together, they could have the biggest front line in the nation.
The Skinny: Yes, the defending Big Ten champs lost the conference player of the year (Swanigan). But they are hardly bereft of talent. Painter has four starters and six of his top seven scorers back. With size, versatility, tournament experience and a team that knows how to defend, look for the four seniors to keep the Boilermakers at or near the top of the conference standings.
Purdue begins life without Haas vs. Butler

DETROIT -- Sunday's second round game in the East Regional between No. 2 seed Purdue and No. 10 seed Butler will be a rematch from regular season non-conference play, but will feature two drastically different teams than the previous matchup.

Purdue (29-6) defeated Butler 82-67 in the Crossroads Classic on Dec. 16, and on Friday defeated 15th-seeded Cal State Fullerton 74-48 to advance to the round of 32.

But the first-round victory came with a cost in starting center Isaac Haas.

The 7-foot-2 senior, widely regarded as one of the best low-post scorers in the country, fractured his right elbow in the second half of Friday's win after colliding with the hardwood having just secured a defensive rebound.

Purdue athletics released a statement shortly after the conclusion of Friday's game confirming the fracture, and announced Haas would miss the remainder of the season.

"He's been great for our program," Purdue coach Matt Painter said of Haas. "He's worked really hard. When guys get to this moment, this is their time, and now that's been obviously taken away from him. But it's part of competition, and the next guy's got to be able to step up and play."

The Bulldogs (21-13) may also be limited Sunday as guard Paul Jorgenson is listed as a game-time decision because of an ankle injury. Jorgenson, the team's third-leading scorer at 10.3 points per game, scored only three points in 10 minutes during Butler's opening-round victory over seventh-seeded Arkansas on Friday.

The Bulldogs handled the higher-seeded Razorbacks, winning 79-62 after jumping out to an early 21-2 lead. Butler shot almost 50 percent for the game and outrebounded Arkansas 45-25.

Butler guard Kamar Baldwin, who had 24 points, nine rebounds and five assists against Arkansas, said the team still has a lot prepare for even if Haas is not on the floor.

"I don't know if he's going to play or not, but we know they're a really good team with him or without him," Baldwin said. "We're going to prepare either way and be ready to go tomorrow."

Haas averaged 14.7 points per game and 5.7 rebounds this season, and had nine points and 10 rebounds Friday. He participated in a limited number of drills during the Boilermakers' Saturday practice and is reportedly wearing a brace, but Painter dismissed the possibility of Haas returning to action.

"He's trying to convince me, but it is what it is," Painter said. "His future is more important."

Without Haas, Purdue's depth in the post is in question. The likely replacement in the starting rotation is 7-foot-4 freshman Matt Haarms, who averaged 4.7 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.1 blocks in 16.6 minutes off the bench. Haarms, more of a rim protector than an inside scorer, is fifth among the nation's freshman in blocked shots.

Approaching Sunday's rematch, Painter seemed unconcerned when discussing an adjusted game plan without Haas in the mix.

"He only plays half the game for us anyway," Painter said. "In our last game, Matt Haarms played 27 minutes in the game, so we're used to playing half the game without him anyway, so it doesn't change much."

First-year Butler coach LaVall Jordan believes his team has improved considerably since its initial matchup with Purdue in December.

"I think we are a lot more fluid offensively," Jordan said. "At that point in time it was pretty choppy ... And then I think defensively we've gotten a lot stronger, a lot more solid, a lot more aware, a lot more connected on that end of the court, where we've had from that point on, once we got in the Big East play, we've had some really solid defensive performances."

The Bulldogs seemed locked in defensively against Arkansas, holding the Razorbacks to 35.7 percent shooting, including 22.2 percent from 3-point range.

Even without Haas in the lineup, Purdue's perimeter shooting can be difficult to contain. The Boilermakers rank second in the country in 3-point field goal percentage at 42 percent -- the best among any team in the NCAA Tournament -- and with rotation changes likely to take place in light of Haas' injury, Jordan discussed the potential of facing a lineup with five perimeter scoring threats.

"The decision you have to make on our side is, are you going to match it? Or are you going to try to play advantage basketball with your post?" Jordan said. "I think we've got to prep for all of it and make a game-time call as you're in the moment and see what's best if they do do that, how you're going to counter it."

The winner of Sunday's game will advance to the Sweet 16 and play No. 3 seed Texas Tech or No. 6 seed Florida at TD Garden in Boston. Both teams advanced to the Sweet 16 last year, and Butler seeks consecutive trips for the first time since its back-to-back National Championship appearances in 2010 and 2011.

The Boilermakers made the Sweet 16 in 2009 and 2010, their first back-to-back appearances since 1999 and 2000.
