Butler releases 2017-18 nonconference schedule

Lots to look forward to.

NCAA Basketball: Xavier at Butler Thomas J. Russo-USA TODAY Sports

The Butler Bulldogs became the most recent Big East team to announce their 2017-18 nonconference schedule, as they did so on Monday afternoon.

Let’s take a look.

Butler nonconference schedule

Date Game
Date Game
November 10 Kennesaw State
November 12 Princeton
November 15 @ Maryland
November 18 Furman
November 23 Texas (PK80)
November 24 Duke/Portland State (PK80)
November 26 TBD (PK80)
December 2 Saint Louis
December 5 Utah
December 9 Youngstown State
December 16 Purdue (Bankers Life Fieldhouse)
December 19 Morehead State
December 21

Obviously there are a few highlights here. The Gavitt Games matchup with Maryland should be a blast, despite the Terps losing Melo Trimble to the NBA. PK80 will be one of the best Feast Week tournaments of all time, and the Utah and Purdue games should be solid tests.

The Bulldogs always play strong nonconference schedules, and it generally works out for them. It’ll also be interesting to see if they can continue their nonconference home winning streak. Butler has won 34 straight nonconference games at Hinkle Fieldhouse.
