Virginia had little problem with Hampton in the Round of 64 and now the #1 seed sets their sights on Butler in the Round of 32.
Butler struggled early against Texas Tech, but handled business with a charge in the 2nd half to move.
Virginia put the clamps down defensively, not letting Hampton get any room or space on the floor.
Virginia routed the #16 81-45, as they got an absolute team effort from everyone, which has been their key to success all season long. The Cavaliers had 4 players in double figures and with the exception of the 3 garbage minutes players, everyone had at least a bucket to claim.
Virginia has prided themselves all season long on the defensive end and while Hampton isn’t the most powerful offense, they gave them no room to work.
Anthony Gill led the way in the Round of 64 matchup as he finished with 19 points and 7 rebounds. Expect him to be a difference maker here, as he’ll be up against a much tougher defense.
Butler came out extremely flat and soft in the first half as they struggled with the Red Raiders early on.
However, everything shifted right before half as Butler grabbed the lead and never looked back in the 2nd half. Butler used their outside shooters in the 2nd half to push their way to a 41 point half.
Kellen Dunham was the main guy behind that as he finished with 23 points overall and shot 5 of 9 from behind the arc. Butler really worked that inside out game and will have to do that once again here as the Cavaliers a much harder defensive team.
Butler has been a surprisingly dangerous offense as they average over 80 points a game. Typically, Butler would really be a defensive minded team, but with the shooters they have from the outside, this team can strike and strike quickly.
