INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Kellen Dunham scored 29 points and made all seven of his 3-pointers Saturday, leading Butler to a 71-54 rout over Seton Hall.

The Bulldogs (14-16, 4-14 Big East) have won two straight in March after going 0-7 in February. The win assured Butler of a 24th consecutive winning season at home, a 19th consecutive win on Senior Day and the No. 9 seed in the conference tournament.

Seton Hall (15-16, 6-12) has lost four of five. Patrik Auda scored 22 points and Sterling Gibbs added 11 for the Pirates, who will face Butler for the third time this season Wednesday night in Madison Square Garden. Butler swept the regular season series.

It didn't take the Bulldogs long to assert themselves Saturday. Dunham scored 14 points and hit four 3s in the first seven minutes, giving Butler a 24-10 lead. Seton Hall never got closer than 10 the rest of the way.
