Butler 64, Evansville 60: Butler hung on to win this one, but they didn't do it in pretty fashion. The Bulldogs were just 14-50 from the field, 5-18 from three, and 31-44 from the line - all well below their usual numbers. Up 53-40 with under four minutes left, Butler allowed Evansville to shoot their way back into the game. The good news? Butler won their second game on the road early in the season. Regardless of who you are playing, road wins this early in the season are always good.
