As Butler looked to hone their skills before their matchup with Indiana next week, eyes were looking at the offensive end for the Bulldogs to look for signs of improvement. They were not disappointed.

Hinkle was prestine, that wasn’t a surprise.

Butler SPRINTED out of the gate. And Sean McDermott was in the middle of it.

And others joined in the fun.

Butler’s defense impressed too, holding the Huskies to a rough-shooting first half.

But you know what they always say, you have to put the ball in the hole to win.

It was a welcome sight for a Butler team that had struggled offensively in recent games.

The rest of the half finished as expected. NIU coach Mark Montgomery had some thoughts that Bulldogs are ecstatic to hear.

Around the conference, Cincinnati took down cross-rival Xavier.

Nate Fowler has struggled in the past few games, and fans are starting to wonder when/if a change will happen.

At the end of the day, a win is a win, but this was the performance the team was looking for. Especially because of who they are playing next week.

The Bulldogs will next play as part of the Crossroads Classic, where they will take on the Indiana Hoosiers. The game is at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in downtown Indianapolis. The game will tip at 3:45 on Dec. 15 and will air on CBS.
