The twenty-fourth-ranked Butler Bulldogs will attempt to keep their recent winning momentum as they prepare to meet the DePaul Blue Demons in a Big East Conference showdown set to be staged on Sunday at the Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. This will be the second instalment of a two-game season series between the two schools.

The Bulldogs, who have made a habit with poor starts in games this season, really pushed the envelope in their meeting with DePaul as they trailed by as many as 20 points in the first half 9 points in the second but managed to rally both times to finally prevail 70-69 in overtime. It was Butler’s sixth straight win against the Blue Demons.

Since the win, the Bulldogs have struggled somewhat losing 3 of their last 5 games. With four games remaining, Butler has to run the table as they sit in second 3.5 games behind Villanova in the Big East and hope for the Wildcats to badly stumble down the stretch. The Bulldogs are set to meet the Wildcats on Wednesday.

To say that the Blue Demons are struggling would be an understatement as they have just one win to show for in their last 15 games and they needed to rally from a 9-point deficit to beat Providence by a mere point for their lone victory during that span. Their last 3 losses have all come against ranked teams and were by double-digits.

BetOnline has the Butler listed as 18-point favorites and the game's total is sitting at 140.
