It was another heartbreaking night for the Butler women’s basketball team Wednesday night when they returned to action for the first time since suffering a blowout loss to no. 10 UConn last week at Hinkle Fieldhouse. This time, they hosted Creighton and, unfortunately it was much of the same.
The Bulldogs never really got going, throwing the ball away with sloppy passes, which led to 14 turnovers and saw the Bluejays shooting 55% from the field compared to Butler’s dismal 34%.
Butler was outplayed on every side of the ball, with Creighton out-rebounding them 45-19 and racking up 30 assists to the Bulldogs’ six assists, with this being a runaway game before halftime even hit with the final score of 95-44.
The bright spots of the night were guards Trinity White and Zoe Jackson, who were able to load up on a few steals and played hard regardless of how poorly the game was going for the Bulldogs. Both had no problems driving into the paint and used their athleticism and skills to their advantage.
If Butler can’t come together as a team, though, and play with more ball control and play with more poise, this is going to be the final season for Head Coach Kurt Godlevske.
