Trojans Get Set to Take on Butler in Early Season Test

TROY, Ala. – The Trojans head north for an early-season test as they get set to face Butler from the historic Hinkle Fieldhouse on Saturday, November 13 at 7:00 on Fox Sports 2.
 
This will be the first time these two teams will meet in program history and the first meeting between Troy and a Big East school since 2015 when the Trojans matched up against Seton Hall.
 
“We’re going to have to play tough, aggressive defense on Saturday,” head coach Scott Cross said. “Butler is a big, strong physical team. We have to stick to our game plan of moving and rebounding the ball and, in the end, knock down open shots when we get them. We’re looking forward to the trip, and I think it will be an great experience for the guys.”
 
The Trojans are coming off a 104-42 win over Carver on Tuesday to open the season. Which saw Desmond Williams lead all scorers with 17 points.
