INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kelan Martin scored 19 points and Roosevelt Jones had 17 points and five steals as No. 9 Butler routed crosstown rival IUPUI 92-54 on Monday night.

The Bulldogs (11-1) have won eight straight since a November loss to Miami. They are 7-0 at home this season.

IUPUI (4-11) was led by Darell Combs with 11 points and T.J. Henderson with 10, not nearly enough against Butler’s up-tempo offense. The Jaguars have lost five of six and are 0-5 in this series, which began in 1997-98.

Butler never trailed but struggled to take control until using a 13-2 run late in the first half to extend the lead to 19 points.

And after making it 43-24 at halftime, the Bulldogs opened the second half on a 10-0 run to put it away.

It’s the fifth time this season Butler has topped the 90-point mark.
