The Butler Bulldogs put up a great fight against the surprisingly strong Saint Louis Billkens. The Billkens only had a two point lead at the half, but that lead grew large fast. The Billkens outscored the Bulldogs by 9 in the second half.
The Bulldogs starting five were so week only two of them had points! If it weren't for Rotnei Clarke they would have lost by much for than 11. Clarke had 16 points and 5 rebounds making him the only player in double figures. On the other hand, the Billkens had a very strong starting five with two of them with double figures in points and one with 11 rebounds. In fact Dwayne Evans had a double-double with 11 rebounds and 24 points. Cody Ellis, a starter as well, had 13 points and 5 rebounds.
The final score was 67 to 56 with the Atlantic 10 being won by the Saint Louis Billkens. If the Bulldogs had a second chance to play the Billkens do you think they would win? I do. Post your opinion in the comments!
