Butler pulls away in 2nd half

– Rotnei Clarke hit seven three-pointers and finished with 22 points and the 18th-ranked Butler Bulldogs shook off a sluggish start and routed Vanderbilt 68-49 Saturday night for their seventh straight victory.

The Bulldogs (10-2) missed their first seven three-pointers and led only 25-22 at halftime before taking control of the game with a 14-3 run to open the second half.

Clarke, who missed his first six shots, had another memorable game in Memorial Gym.

He scored 36 points in January 2011 playing for Arkansas, hitting 6 of 8 beyond the arc in that game.

This time around, the senior guard hit 6 of 9 from three-point range before Butler coach Brad Stevens starting pulling his starters. Kellen Dunham added 12 points.

Kyle Fuller led Vanderbilt with 10 points.

Kedren Johnson finished with nine, well below his average of 17.8 points and didn’t score until nearly three minutes into the second half.
