In what turned out to be a nationally-televised two hour recruiting video for the Butler Bulldogs, visiting Manchester University showed a lot of heart but not much game. The Bulldogs dominated in every statistic that matters, especially the one on the scoreboard. The final margin of 59 points is the greatest in the modern era for Butler. 100 points scored marked the first triple-digit game since 2001.
Butler out-rebounded Manchester 38-23, turned the ball over seven fewer times, and made 63% of its shots from the floor. 14 players saw at least five minutes of playing time and all but one got into the scorebook. Kellen Dunham got some much-needed rest with a season-low 19 minutes but still lead all scorers with 15 points.
The Bulldogs don't play again until Saturday's contest against Purdue at the Crossroads Classic in Indianapolis.
7 points and rebounds. Was the rare Bulldog under 50% shooting, with a 3-7 line on the night. Made a three pointer on two attempts. He's tried to develop into a stretch four this season with the three-point attempts, but this was his first game shooting over 29% from long range.
More active offensively than his classmate with 8 points and also pulled down 6 rebounds. Added a block and an assist, but no turnovers. His passing is one of his best qualities and will serve well when opponents have to respect his inside game.
