VCU Vs. Butler Score: Matt Howard, Butler Rally Thanks To Offensive Rebounding
Butler has started to assert itself on the offensive glass, and that has keyed a comeback in its Final Four game against VCU. The Bulldogs are on a 8-0 run to tie the score at 15 with 10:15 remaining.
Jamie Skeen, who took a hard fall going into the under-16 minute timeout, hit one of two free throws to push VCU's lead to 12-7. VCU then stifled Butler with its pressure defense, forcing a wild miss by Butler. Butler's struggles continued, as Matt Howard rushed a three-pointer on Butler's next possession, eventually leading to another three-pointer by Burgess from the right corner for a 15-7 VCU lead.
