One night after scoring 10 in overtime to prevent an upset at Wisconsin-Milwaukee, No. 8 Butler's Mike Green was dominant again in an 89-73 rout of Youngstown State. The Bulldogs are 23-2 for the second season in a row, the school's best start; they shot 13 of 20 from behind the arc.

Youngstown lost despite shooting 58% and receiving 35 points from Byron Davis and Vance Cooksey; Butler forced 13 turnovers and set a season record with their 62.3% shooting mark. Of the Bulldogs' five remaining games, four are at home. (Read more NCAA stories.)
