As is so often the case at this time of year, nonconference schedules are starting to be pieced together, both by schools and media members.
On Thursday, we were treated to two pieces of Butler's 2016 nonconference schedule.
First, CBS' Jon Rothstein tweeted the date of the return game from last year's home-and-home started with Cincinnati.
Butler will host Cincinnati on December 10th at Hinkle Fieldhouse, source told @CBSSports. Return game of home-and-home series.— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) April 28, 2016
Then, the school confirmed that they would be playing in the Las Vegas Invitational the week of Thanksgiving. The tournament also comes with two on-campus games prior to going to Vegas.
The bracket has not yet been released, but the full Las Vegas Invitational field can be found below.
