Andrew Smeathers and Haley Howard in their first two years as Butler University basketball players have nearly run the gamut when it comes to numbers.
God-given leverage blended with athleticism and quality wingspans makes them viable options as a “4” on their respective Bulldogs teams. Meanwhile, ball-handling skills and a sweet perimeter touch allow them to take the court as either a “2” or “3.”
“I’m a basketball player. That’s the way I look at it,” said Smeathers, the 6-foot-7 junior-to-be who saw action in 20 of Butler’s 36 games in 2012-13, averaging 1.0 point a contest. “Wherever we need a body, that’s where I’ll play.”
