For the second time in as many matches, #13 Creighton needed five sets to down Butler, this time on Senior Day at Hinkle Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.
This scouting report will focus on the match between #13 Creighton and Butler. This is a Big East match that can either clinch the Big East regular season crown for CU or solidify Butler’s RPI and hopefully get the Bulldogs into the NCAA tournament in December.
Butler earned a hard-fought road win and RPI booster by knocking off (RV) Marquette in five sets Saturday night.
#16 Creighton come back on Friday the 13th from being down 0-2 to a five-set victory over fellow Big East member Butler.
Named the Tournament MVP of the Golden Flashes Classic, Butler redshirt junior outside hitter Whitney Beck averaged a league-best 6.42 points and 5.17 kills per set with 4.0 digs per set and four aces as she posted a pair of double-double performances in wins over College of Charleston and Kent State.
Butler uses a strong effort at the net to defeat the host Golden Flashes.
