Butler needs overtime to drop Vanderbilt

– 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.

IUPUI 88, INDIANA-NORTHWEST 53: In Indianapolis, Justus Stanback scored 15 points to lead IUPUI to a dominating win.

The Jaguars (1-3) had five players in double figures as they jumped to an early lead and pulled ahead 43-17 at the half. Their bench contributed 51 points.

Their defense continually stymied Indiana-Northwest (2-4), limiting them to just 16-of-66 shooting from the floor for 24.2 percent. That was the lowest percentage by an IUPUI opponent in the program’s Division I era, which began in 1998. No Indiana-Northwest player scored in double figures.

Mitch Patton, who had 10 points, opened the scoring with a layup. Patton’s jump shot and free throw with 13:28 remaining in the first period stretched the lead to 17-5.

Indiana-Northwest, an NAIA school, could never close the gap.

Khufu Najee, Ian Chiles and Ja’Rob McCallum each had 11 points for the Jaguars.


HUNTINGTON 79, INDIANA TECH 65: In Huntington, Amelia Recker scored 28 points and Pazia Speed 22 to lead the Foresters, who outscored Tech 21-7 at the free throw line. Chelsea Carradine led Tech with 24.

FRANKLIN 64, TRINE 41: Visiting Trine shot just 21.7 percent in the second half (5 of 23) as Franklin turned an 11-point halftime lead into a rout.

Kelsey Henselmeier scored 15 points to lead the Thunder, who were outscored 21-0 from the 3-point line.

Franklin had four players in double figures led by Lauren Desutter with 13.
