INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kellen Dunham scored 22 points and Kameron Woods added 14 to lead No. 23 Butler to a 73-52 win over Marquette on Wednesday night.

The Bulldogs (20-8, 10-5 Big East) rebounded from their worst loss of the season by winning their 20th game of the season for the 20th time in school history. Butler also avoided losing back-to-back games for the first time since mid-December.

Marquette (11-16, 4-12) was led by Luke Fisher with 17 points. It has lost four straight.  Matt Carlino added 10 after missing 4 games with a concussion.

The short-handed Golden Eagles still managed to make things tough on Butler for nearly 30 minutes.

But after taking a 37-30 halftime lead, the Bulldogs finally seized control on Dunham’s back-to-back 3s. That gave Butler a 44-35 advantage with 15:53 to play. The Bulldogs then used a 7-0 run to push the lead to 59-42 with 8:43 left, and the Golden Eagles never challenged again.
