Admittedly, this is neither the time nor tone that we expected this story to come. In years past, The Butler Collegian has highlighted the successes of Butler student-athletes and teams from 18 sports in an end-of-year recap.

That is for a normal. In this year of chaos and confusion, there was still history and memories made throughout the limited sports season. And there are more sports still to play this calendar year.The Butler men’s basketball game versus Western Michigan on Nov. 25 will snap a streak of 255 consecutive days without a Bulldog team in game action.

As the last issue of this cursed year, these are the top Butler sports’ moments The Collegian has covered, in chronological order. The beginning of 2020 could not have started any better for Butler men’s basketball. In a game where St. John’s staged a furious comeback on their home floor, Christian David stepped up and nailed a game-winning three to give Butler the win on New Year’s Eve in New York.
