    Jordan Tucker cannot wait until Saturday.

    That’s the day he will make his debut for Butler after transferring from Duke in January, and then sitting out per NCAA transfer regulations.

    “I’ve been thinking about this game since I got to Butler,” the 6-foot-7, 210-pound wing from White Plains, N.Y. said Thursday by phone. “I’ve been excited for eight months. I can’t wait to get on the floor and to get out there with my teammates.”

    Ironically, his college debut will come against Indiana, a program he heavily considered before choosing the Blue Devils.

    “Yeah, I strongly considered going there until [Tom] Crean got fired and I was just about to go there,” Tucker said.
