INDIANAPOLIS – Khyle Marshall scored 16 of his career-high 26 points in the final seven minutes Tuesday night, leading Butler past Vanderbilt 85-77 in overtime.
Kellen Dunham added 16 points for the Bulldogs, who won for the 22nd time in 25 games at Hinkle Fieldhouse – though few have been this challenging.
Butler led 61-47 with 7:43 left in regulation and appeared bound for an easy win.
But the Commodores (2-1) went on a 15-2 run to trim the deficit to one and took the lead when Eric McClellan completed a three-point play with 53.8 seconds to go.
Marshall gave Butler the lead with a layup, and then after McClellan tied it with a free throw, he missed the second free throw and was called for a travel. Dunham missed a running 3-pointer at the buzzer.
But Marshall dominated overtime as the Bulldogs pulled away.
McClellan finished with a career-high 29 points.
