Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks

It has been a struggle recently for the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks who was 4-2 to start the season and now they are on a four-game skid and currently hold a 4-6 record. The Warhawks relies on a one-two punch by Michael Ertel and JD Williams. Ertel averages 16.7 points, 3.8 rebounds, 2.9 assists and 1.3 steals while Williams does 16 points, 5.9 rebounds, 2.7 assists and 1.7 steals per night. Other than those two players, they have limited options with Jalen Hodge and Tyree White being the closest ones. Against Butler, this is going to be a long night for the Warhawks.

Players to watch:

M. Ertel G (10 GP 36.8 MIN 16.7 PTS 3.8 REB 2.9 AST 1.3 STL 0 BLK 2.4 TO 42.6 FG% 81.8 FT% 36.4 3P%), J. Williams G (10 GP 37.9 MIN 16 PTS 5.9 REB 2.7 AST 1.7 STL 0.1 BLK 3.1 TO 42.5 FG% 73.5 FT% 36.4 3P%), J. Hodge G (9 GP 24.7 MIN 9.6 PTS 2.4 REB 1.8 AST 0.4 STL 0.2 BLK 1.8 TO 56 FG% 73.9 FT% 56.5 3P%).

Butler Bulldogs

Butler is looking for the next Gordon Hayward and Kamar Baldwin. Baldwin has been leading the team in scoring with 14.8 points, 4.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.1 steals per game. Sean McDermott does 11.4 points, 4.9 rebounds and shoots 47.4% from beyond the three-point arc. Their third option is Bryce Nye who does 10.3 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.2 steals per game. Those three alone are going to be tough for the Warhawks to handle and the Bulldogs have formed a good basketball program this decade. There are more players that can do damage to their opponents and the depth will just be too much for the Warhawks to handle.

Players to watch:

K. Baldwin G (12 GP 28.7 MIN 14.8 PTS 4.3 REB 2.8 AST 1.1 STL 0.6 BLK 2.3 TO 43.8 FG% 95.5 FT% 36.2 3P%), S.
