Butler earned third-team All-American honors after averaging a team-high 16 points on 38.1% 3-point shooting for Baylor last season. His production was instrumental in the Bears finishing the 2019-20 campaign ranked fifth in the nation with a 24-6 record.

Fellow standout guard MaCio Teague has also decided to return, making Baylor one of the leading candidates to be named No. 1 in preseason polls.

"The pieces we have coming in, the pieces we have returning ... I think we'll have a great team," Butler told Stadium's Jeff Goodman.

Along with Butler and Teague, Baylor is now set to have four starters back in the fold, including Davion Mitchell and Mark Vital.

One Phillies coach, one clubhouse staffer test positive for COVID-19 .
The plan had been for the Phillies to resume play on Saturday. Whether that is now in jeopardy isn’t known. The organization has already dealt with some infections earlier this year, but managed to avoid further spread within the club.This is worrisome news on several levels. First and foremost, it’s concerning to see two more individuals in the game carrying this disease. Hopefully they’ll both make a swift and full recovery.Beyond that, it’s obviously concerning to see that spread (presumably) occurred between the teams.
