Short-Handed Bulldogs Cruise to Opener Win

Before Butler’s season opener against IUPUI on Wednesday night, the team announced that it would be without Christian David, Henry Baddley, Derrik Smits, Jordan Tucker, and Markeese Hastings due to a combination of injuries, illness, and suspension. Two minutes into the game, Kamar Baldwin was yanked with an apparent injury. A few minutes later, Campbell Donovan went down with a knee injury. The Bulldogs had just six healthy players for almost 34 of the game but that was more than enough to pummel the visiting Jaguars.
