INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Andrew Chrabascz scored 17 points and Kellen Dunham added 15 as Butler clamped down on the boards to beat Tennessee-Martin 64-37 on Monday night.

Butler (9-3) out-rebounded the Skyhawks (7-4) 39-20 and limited UT-Martin to 16 field goals in 48 attempts (33.3 percent), including just 2 of 13 3-point tries.

Chrabascz drained a 3-pointer, as did Alex Barlow and Dunham added a basket as the Bulldogs opened the second half on an 8-0 run, doubling the lead from eight to 16 points and were not threatened the rest of the way. Butler has won 19 straight nonconference home games.

Akeem Joseph led Tennessee-Martin with 12 points and seven rebounds - both career bests - as the Skyhawks, despite forcing Butler into 16 turnovers, were held to a season-low in points scored.

Kelan Martin added 10 points for Butler, Barlow eight with three steals, Roosevelt Jones nine with eight rebounds.
