Davidson-Butler to tip at noon on Feb. 21

Davidson's ESPN Bracketbuster game with No. 15 Butler has been scheduled for noon on Saturday, Feb.21 at Belk Arena. The game is sold out.

The game will be an important one for the Wildcats; a win would help their chances of receiving an NCAA Tournament at-large bid should they not win the Southern Conference tournament. Davidson's loss to the College of Charleston Saturday night sent the Wildcats plummeting in the NCAA's RPI, from No.30 to No.50. A victory over Butler, which is 10th in the RPI, would go far toward repairing that damage.

The teams will meet again at Butler early next season.

Davidson, which is 20-4, plays at Wofford Thursday night at 7. Butler (21-2) plays again Friday against visiting Illinois-Chicago.
