College career[edit]

Butler played college basketball at Utah State. While in his senior year at Utah State they were in and out of the AP top 25 College Basketball Rankings. Utah State finished the regular season with a record of 25 wins against only 2 losses, but lost to Cal St. Northridge in the Big West Conference tournament semifinal game, ending their chance at an automatic bid into the NCAA tournament. Utah State was then denied an at large bid into the tournament, and became the only team to ever finish the season in the AP top 25 rankings and not be selected into the NCAA tournament. University of the Pacific, the team that went on to represent the Big West Conference, went on to upset two teams and make it into the Sweet 16. While at Utah State, Butler was known for his dunking ability.
