The Butler Bulldogs have been a fixture in NCAA Tournaments over the years. And 2018 will prove to be no different.

Butler earned themselves an at-large bid to the festivities after another successful season in Indianapolis. The Dawgs went 20-13 and picked up wins over the Villanova Wildcats and Ohio State Buckeyes, to name a few along the way. This is their fourth straight trip to the NCAAs, seventh since 2010 and 10th since 2007.

The Bulldogs are in the East Region and will face the Arkansas Razorbacks in the Round of 64. The game will be played in Detroit, Michigan at Little Caesars Arena on Friday.
