STOORS, CT — Scoring just 51 points and shooting 33% won't win many games in the Big East.

Those were the numbers Butler turned in Tuesday in a 63-51 loss to Connecticut.

The Bulldogs trailed by just three with less than eight minutes to go in the first half. But the Huskies outscored Butler 18-7 going into halftime, then coasted to a win in the second half.

Only one Butler player scored in double figures. Bryce Golden had 19 points, 15 of them from beyond the three point line.

The Bulldogs, who had won two straight, had a chance to even their Big East record. Instead, they fall to 4-6 in the conference and 5-8 overall. Connecticut is now 5-3 in the Big East and 8-3 overall.
