Projected 2014-15 Starting Lineup for the Butler Bulldogs

Jim O'Connor-USA TODAY Sports

Butler had a disappointing season in 2013 and the Bulldogs are looking to rebound in 2014. With essentially every starter from last season returning, here's a look at the Bulldogs’ starting five for 2014.

Alex Barlow (5'11", Senior, Guard)

2013 stats: 6.6 PPG, 3.7 RPG, 3.5 APG

Barlow was an effective facilitating guard last season as well as a team leader. A former walk-on, Barlow was named the Big East's Scholar-Athlete of the Year last year and he has exceeded all expectations every season that he has been on the Butler Bulldogs. With more experience under his belt, Barlow should only improve in the coming season.

Kellen Dunham (6'6", Junior, Guard)

2013 stats: 16.4 PPG, 4 RPG, 1.7 APG

Butler's leading scorer from 2013 returns and should pick up right where he left off. With the departure of Creighton's Doug McDermott, Dunham could be the best shooter in the Big East in 2014. Dunham hit a 3-pointer in 29 of Butler's 31 games last year and he even made seven consecutive 3-pointers in a game against the Seton Hall Pirates. He will be the focal point of the Bulldog offense and their most important player.

Roosevelt Jones (6'4", Junior, Forward)

2012 stats (missed 2013 season): 10.1 PPG, 5.6 RPG, 3.4 APG

Roosevelt Jones is the piece that should help bring Butler back to the top of the Big East. After missing the entirety of the 2013 season due to a wrist injury, Jones is expected to return to the Bulldog starting lineup this season. He was one of Butler's most important players in 2012 and Jones should be the biggest difference maker in terms of improving their lineup. His absence hurt Butler all season in 2013 and having him back will help immensely.

Andrew Chrabascz (6'7", Sophomore, Forward)

2013 stats: 6.3 PPG, 3 RPG, 1.1 APG

Andrew Chrabascz may be the youngest starter in Butler's lineup but he has the potential to be the best player on the floor. He was named to the Big East All-Rookie Team in 2013 and saw his role grow as the season progressed, eventually being named a starter in ten late-season games. Being only a sophomore, the sky is the limit for Chrabascz and there's no doubt he'll be a go to player for the next three years.

Kameron Woods (6'9", Junior, Forward)

2013 stats: 7.5 PPG, 9 RPG, 2 APG

Butler does not have a true center but Kameron Woods is about as close as you can get without being 7-foot-2. An effective scorer and the team's leading rebounder, Woods fortifies the Bulldogs' front court. His main weakness is that he averaged only one block per game in 2013. If he can improve his defense, Woods will be one of the premier forwards in the Big East.
