Game Recap: Villanova 67, Butler 48

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Butler's offensive ineptitude reaches a new low! But at least the subs got a few minutes.

Four factors

56 Possessions Butler Villanova
Effective FG% 38.8% 51.7%
Turnover % 17.9% 12.5%
Offensive Rebound % 36.8% 46.1%
FTA/FGA 42.9 39.7

The Butler Bulldogs shot 30.6% from the field and gave up 18 offensive rebounds en route to dropping to 2-14 in the Big East. The Villanova Wildcats didn't shoot much better, but got enough second chances to end any hope of an upset by halftime. Villanova is now 13-2 in the conference, with its only two losses coming to Creighton.

Butler Breakdown-

Khyle Marshall shot 5 of 10 for 10 points in limited minutes. He only played 18 with early foul trouble. The rest of the Bulldogs made just over a quarter of their attempts.

Kellen Dunham went 3 of 13 from the field and 1 of 9 from three-point land, his worst performance in a conference slate of frustrating games. Finished with 12 points and a team-high seven boards.

Kameron Woods was held to just six rebounds of his own. He still leads the Big East with 9.0 rebounds per game. Xavier's Matt Stainbrook is second with 8.1 per. Point guard Alex Barlow contributed five boards of his own and went 1 of 4 from deep.

Andrew Chrabascz didn't do much of anything for Butler down low. One points and two rebounds in 15 minutes. Off the bench, Erik Fromm got two points, three rebounds, and three fouls. Not exactly a stellar frontcourt performance.

Elijah Brown added 8 on 2 of 8 shooting as well. The whole team saw action, or what's left of it after two transfers and Roosevelt Jones' preseason injury.

Butler is now alone in last place with two Big East games remaining at DePaul and home against Seton Hall to end the regular season.
