Butler will be led by junior guard Kellen Dunham, who returns to Indianapolis after leading the Bulldogs in scoring at 16.4 points per game last season and Roosevelt Jones, who returns to the court after missing last season with a wrist injury.
Senior forward Kameron Woods, who nearly averaged a double-double for much of last season (7.5 points, 9 rebounds) and sophomore Andrew Chrabascz look lead the front court, which added three freshman (Tyler Wideman, Jackson Davis, and Kelan Martin).
