Butler associate head coach basketball coach Matthew Graves said in Wednesday’s Indianapolis Star that Butler is attempting to get Temple to visit the Bulldogs’ Hinkle Fieldhouse for a nonconference game during the  2012-13 season. 

If that works out, the newspaper said Butler’s 2012-13 nonleague schedule could consist of Evansville, Ball State, Gonzaga, Temple and a non-Division I program.

Regarded as one of the nation’s top non-power conference programs, Butler is coming off consecutive national-championship game appearances.

Yours truly hopes the Temple vs. Butler deal gets done.
