Virginia goes to bench to make run

Like a dramatic win over Pittsburgh in 2011, Butler is looking for another big win vs. a 1-seed in the second round. But Cavaliers sub Marial Shayok has 7 big points off the bench to erase a Butler lead. Follow live

After Andrew Chrabascz scored 12 straight for Butler, Virginia moved ACC Defensive Player of the Year Malcolm Brogdon to guard him. Chrabascz has already set new season-high with 19 points and has made a career-best four 3-pointers.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Andrew Chrabascz leads Butler with 12 points into halftime. That is not a misprint & yes his last name is spelled correctly. UVa has chosen so far not to double Chrabascz on the post and risk leaving shooters like Dunham open on the perimeter. Dunham & Martin, normally the Bulldogs leading scorers, have combined for 4 points on 2-6 FG

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Butler leading scorer Kellen Dunham has only attempted one shot so far. Doesn't seem to be hunting his shot aggressively enough, UVa certainly not going to make it easy for him.

Applause from fans in Raleigh after Indiana-Kentucky feed shown on scoreboard. Butler fans happy for IU, some North Carolina fans possibly hating on UK. Hoosiers will face winner of Carolina-Providence in Sweet 16.

Virginia can't separate from Bulldogs

Andrew Chrabascz had 13 points in the tournament opener vs. Texas Tech and he's started out hot today scoring six of Butler's first 11 points. Follow live

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Virginia thankful Mike Tobey using his height advantage inside, otherwise Malcolm Brogdon would be the only player who has scored. The rest of the team not named Tobey or Brogdon have combined for 0-6 FG.
