Saturday afternoon, the Indiana Hoosiers will face the Butler Bulldogs.
The Indiana Hoosiers easily beat the Grand Canyon Antelopes 94 - 66 a week ago. Grand Canyon put up a little fight early on but the Hoosiers didn't let the Antelopes get to far ahead of them before they shut them down. Indiana was up by 11 at the half and they continued to run over Grand Canyon in the 2 nd half. The Hoosiers maintained a double-digit advantage the rest of the way as the Antelopes were too far back to make a dent in the Indiana lead. The Hoosiers shot 44% overall and 33% from 3-point territory as they were led by James Blackmon Jr. and his 18 points. Indiana will have to deal with a Butler team on Saturday that will be bent on shaking off a loss in their last game. That means a tougher game for the Hoosiers.
The Butler Bulldogs blew a solid halftime lead last Sunday to lose to the Tennessee Volunteers by a score of 67 - 55. Butler had to battle against a Tennessee team that wouldn't go away in the 1st half. It was only in the closing minutes of the half that the Bulldogs were able to build a decent lead over the Volunteers. Butler might have thought that the 9 point halftime lead was enough but it didn't hold in the 2nd half. Tennessee mounted a furious rally in the 2nd half and Butler couldn't hold them back. The Volunteers took control for the last time with just a few minutes left and that sealed the win. The Bulldogs shot just 33% overall and 34% from beyond the arc as they were led by Kellen Dunham's 16 points. The loss ended a 4 game win streak for Butler and will certainly spur them on in Saturday's game.
