Bulldogs seeking to end three-game losing streak

Thursday, February 13, 2014 12:01 am
Up next for Butler: Tonight vs. CreightonWhen: 7 p.m.

Where: Hinkle Fieldhouse, Indianapolis

TV: CBSSN

Records: Butler 12-12 (2-10 Big East), Creighton 19-4 (9-2)

Expected starters for the Butler: Khyle Marshall – 6-6 senior forward; Kameron Woods – 6-9 junior center; Andrew Chrabascz – 6-7 freshman forward; Alex Barlow – 5-11 junior guard; Kellen Dunham – 6-6 sophomore guard.

Butler update: The Bulldogs are on a three-game losing streak and are coming off their lowest-scoring game of the season in a 64-50 loss to Xavier. Butler is 7-5 at home this season and needs one more home win to clinch a winning record in Hinkle for the 24th consecutive season. …Dunham is looking to regain his shooting stroke after a 1-for-10 performance against Xavier. He has made only 17 of his last 55 shots (.309). …Creighton destroyed Butler 88-60 when the teams met at Creighton on Jan. 14 and the Bulldogs were arguably playing better at that time. …Creighton's Doug McDermott remains first in the Big East in scoring, averaging 25.3 points per game.

Butler coach Brandon Miller: “The most disappointing thing is that we've practiced very well. Our last two days of practice, if you had come in and watched our team, we practiced extremely well. …We are seeing progress. The last three road games we played very good basketball at certain points. (Against Xavier), we took a step back. We didn't play well. It makes it look worse when you get decent looks and the ball doesn't go in the basket, and that happened. There were a number of 50/50 plays and if some of those plays go your way...but they didn't go our way.”
