The Butler Men’s Club Basketball team improved its season record to 21-1 with an impressive championship in Bloomington, IN. The team travelled down to the Indiana University campus on February 2nd and 3rd and came out with a 7-0 record. In pool play the Bulldogs beat Lewis College, Ohio State University and Indiana University. Butler opened bracket play with a victory over Dayton 2. This led to a matchup with Ivy Tech-Lafayette, a team Butler has struggled with in the past. After losing four times to Ivy Tech last season, Carl Miller helped BU to a convincing victory, setting up a semifinal matchup with Dayton 1, which Butler won running away. In the championship, Butler faced another familiar foe in Central Michigan University. Thanks to the post play of Matt Vogt and James Pascascio, the Bulldogs were able to come out champions of their third tournament this season.
Butler will face Ivy Tech University-Lafayette this Saturday, February 9th at the HRC.
