INDIANAPOLIS (Dec. 7, 2015)— Kelan Martin scored 20 points and Roosevelt Jones added 14 to help No. 18 Butler run away from VMI 93-66 on Monday night.

Just hours after the Bulldogs (7-1) moved back into the Top 25, they won their fourth straight in emphatic fashion.

The Keydets (3-5) were led by Julian Eleby with 21 points and QJ Peterson with 17 but never led and only tied the score once — 2-2.

Butler started pulling away with an early 11-3 spurt then went on a 12-3 run to take a 39-19 lead less than 12 minutes into the game.

The Bulldogs were just warming up. They used a 16-6 spurt to make it 55-25 with 2:31 left in the half and VMI never got closer than 26 points the rest of the way.

Kellen Dunham, the Big East’s leading scorer, had 11 points for Butler.
