Butler Bulldogs point guard Tyler Lewis won't be making the trip with the 'Dawgs to Omaha on Saturday for their matchup against the Creighton Bluejays. Due to the fact that he suffered a concussion in practice on Thursday, the NC State transfer has been ruled out for the Saturday night matchup with the Jays, per the Butler Bulldogs' Men's Basketball Twitter account.

Also out for the matchup with the Jays is Steven Bennett who is under the weather with an undisclosed illness.
Lewis is averaging 7.0 points and 3.7 assists per game but has struggled mightily in BIG EAST play of late, with marks of just 3.2 points and 2.5 assists per game in six games worth of BIG EAST play.
