Two Butler Men's Basketball Players To "Redshirt" This Season

Butler men's basketball coach Brad Stevens has announced that freshmen Chase Stigall and Emerson Kampen have opted to utilize a "redshirt" year this season. The two Butler players will sit out this season and will have four years of eligibility remaining, beginning with the 2009-10 campaign.

Stigall, a 6-3 guard, was an All-State player at New Castle Chrysler High School. He was a member of the Indiana All-Star team for the 2008 Indiana-Kentucky All-Star series. Kampen, a 6-9 forward, was an honorable mention All-State performer and a McDonald's All-America nominee at Yorktown High School.

The decision by the two newcomers leaves the Bulldogs with 12 full-time players for the 2008-09 season.
