DAYTON - Take a cold-shooting team, hobble by injuries and match them against a ranked team that comes out shooting lights-out and it will result in a lop-sided contest.
That is what 9735 fans saw at the Nutter Center tonight as Butler beat Wright State 69-51.
Cold-shooting was an understatement for Wright State. Their three guards were a combined 0-22 for the game. The team shot a measly 26.7 percent (16-60) and just 17.6 percent (3-16) from 3-point land. At no time did Wright State lead in the game.
