After Butler fans stuffed themselves on this Turkey Day, they were eager to see their Bulldogs play better after falling to the Dayton Flyers last night. Thankfully for them, Butler was hot out of the gate.

Junior Sean McDermott proved to be the quick spark as he hit SIX threes in the first half.

He’s now averaging over 19 points per game on this trip. His development as a scorer will be something to watch for as Butler returns to the states.

But everyone seemed to have higher energy and thus, played much, much better.

One of the big differences may have been point guard Aaron Thompson’s ability to stay out of foul trouble. With him on the court, everyone seems to be more comfortable.

While you may’ve turned the game after a while, Christian David capped the night with a poster that you need to see.

After a long waiting to see how the Bulldogs rebounded from a disappointing effort last night, Butler impressed with a 31-point win over Middle Tennessee.

And it seems that the team is back to playing its brand of basketball.

To round out the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament, Butler will square off with the Florida Gators on Nov. 23 at 9:30 p.m. on ESPNU.
