ROSEMONT, Ill. (AP) — Alex Barlow scored a career-high 19 points to lead Butler to a 79-46 victory over DePaul on Thursday night.

Khyle Marshall added 18 points for Butler (13-16, 3-14 Big East) as the Bulldogs put an end to a season-high seven-game losing streak.

Young led DePaul (11-20, 3-15) with 24 points. The Blue Demons will end the Big East regular season with at least a share of last place for the sixth straight season.

DePaul finished 1 of 18 from 3-point range. Despite a game featuring the bottom two teams of the Big East, Butler dominated DePaul in every aspect. The Bulldogs opened the game with an 18-4 lead. Barlow scored eight points in the span and Marshall drove the lane for two uncontested dunks.

Butler outrebounded DePaul 46-29 for the game.

DePaul was held to a season-low scoring output in losing by its largest margin this season.
