Butler vs Xavier: Halftime Notes

It wasn't a particularly pretty half for Butler, Xavier, or the officials.

Frank Victores-USA TODAY Sports

Butler

  • The Bulldogs had a long scoring drought early in the half, they never fully recovered from it and are shooting under 25%
  • Kellen Dunham had two fouls, stayed in the game, and picked up his third on a questionable call. He had to sit for the final seven minutes
  • Chris Holtmann picked up his second technical of the season following Dunham's charging foul.

Xavier

  • Xavier has worked the ball inside, and it's been super effective. 20 of their 31 points have been in the paint.
  • Myles Davis has been great for the Muskies, with 10 points and three assists
  • Chris Mack also received a technical in the half. As I stated, not a great half for the refs.
