Dawgs Sweep Purdue Tournament

The Dawgs played as well as they have all season last weekend in a great national prep tournament at Purdue University. 12 teams competed in the tournament and the Dawgs came up victorious in all 6 of their games.

The tournament started with pool play on Saturday with the Dawgs winning 3 games against Krannert, Bowling Green and Central Michigan and earning them a #1 seed in the bracket play for Sunday.

Sunday started with a game against Indiana State that Butler won and moved on to play Dayton, a team that had beat them earlier in the season. The Dawgs defeated Dayton and played Wisconsin in the championship game. Butler jumped out to a 12 point half time lead and were able to hold onto that lead against a good Wisconsin team.

Butler now heads to the national tournament at Ohio State University this upcoming weekend. Pool play starts Friday night and continues on Saturday,

The team is extremely excited about the opportunity to play in the national tournament and can’t wait to see how they stack up against the nation’s best.
