Indianapolis, IN — The 15th ranked Butler Bulldogs continued their strong start to the season Tuesday night defeating the Kennesaw State Owls handily 93-51. The Bulldogs again put the defensive clamps down on their opponent marking the eighth time in nine games they have held their opponent under 60 points this season. The victory is the 18th straight non-conference win for the Bulldogs in historic Hinkle Fieldhouse.
The Bulldogs were led to victory by guard Roosevelt Jones, who had his best all-around game of the season finishing with 19 points on 7-of-10 shooting, seven rebounds and seven assists. The most impressive part of Jones’ night came from the free throw line where he put his previous shooting woes to rest going 5-of 6 from the line. The Owls were unable to keep Jones out of the lane where he continuously attacked and converted easy floaters. On the defensive end he engaged and locked into his man all evening contributing a large part to Kennesaw State’s 22 turnovers.
It was a quiet but again efficient night for the Bulldogs’ other star, Kellen Dunham. Dunham finished with 13 points on 2-of-5 shooting with two assists and two steals. Dunham again showed off his great stroke from the line where he shooting 86 percent on the year and going 7-for-8 tonight. With the Bulldogs in complete control the whole game it was impressive to watch Dunham have a seemingly quiet night shooting the ball by his standards this year, yet still managed to be one of the top scorers on the team. It really goes to show how impactful he can be even without a high volume of shots.
Butler will get the remainder of the week to prepare for a matchup with a pesky Tennessee team followed by a showdown with in state foe Indiana. While the Bulldogs had a great night off the bench this evening with 41 points, depth is going to be a question with this team all year.
