What to Know
The DePaul Blue Demons are 1-11 against the Butler Bulldogs since January of 2016, but they’ll have a chance to close the gap a little bit on Wednesday. The Blue Demons and Butler will face off in a Big East battle at 5 p.m. ET at Hinkle Fieldhouse. DePaul will be strutting in after a victory while the Bulldogs will be stumbling in from a loss.
Even if it wasn’t a dominant performance, DePaul beat the Illinois-Chicago Flames 72-66 two weeks ago. DePaul relied on the efforts of guard Javon Freeman-Liberty, who had 27 points in addition to seven rebounds, and forward David Jones, who had 15 points along with nine boards.
Meanwhile, Butler was expected to have a tough go of it last week, and, well, they did. They found themselves the reluctant recipients of an unpleasant 77-48 punch to the gut against the Purdue Boilermakers. Guard Aaron Thompson wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Bulldogs; Thompson finished with only six points on 3-for-10 shooting in his 31 minutes on the court.
The Blue Demons are now 9-1 while Butler sits at 7-4. Two offensive stats to keep an eye on: DePaul enters the contest with 81.6 points per game on average, good for 23rd best in college basketball. On the other end of the spectrum, Butler is stumbling into the game with the 24th fewest points per game in college basketball, having accrued only 63.4 on average.
