Butler gets starting forward back from broken hand


Butler big man Andrew Chrabascz will be back in the lineup tonight as the No. 21 Bulldogs square off with Georgetown in Hinkle Fieldhouse, head coach Chris Holtmann told the Indy Star.

The 6-foot-7 forward was averaging 11.1 points and 3.7 boards this season, but he broke his hand in a loss to Villanova on Valentine’s Day.

Chrabascz missed the last four games, but the Bulldogs went 3-1, as they worked their way through an easy stretch of the schedule. But with second place in the conference on the line as Butler takes on Georgetown and, on Saturday, Providence, getting the big fella back couldn’t have come at a better time.

There’s no indication yet just how much Chrabascz will play, but he is available.
