Dunham's 26 spark Butler 70-48 over Chattanooga

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Kellen Dunham scored 26 points, including a 3-pointer near the halftime buzzer to snap a tie, as Butler pulled away from Chattanooga in the second half for a 70-48 win Tuesday night.

Kameron Woods scored 10 points with a career-high 16 rebounds and Alex Barlow scored 11 for the Bulldogs (2-0).

Chattanooga (1-2) was led by Casey Jones with 14 points and Eric Robertson with 12. The Mocs, playing their third game in five days, went up 22-20 on a Robertson 3-pointer 3 minutes before halftime, but Barlow free throws tied it for Butler and Dunham's 3 in the final seconds shot them ahead.

The Bulldogs started the second half on a 7-3 run, Andrew Chrabascz hitting a layup and Dunham scoring five - a jumper and three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point attempt. The mini-run opened a gap that the Mocs were never able to close.
