GAME INFO: These two teams haven't played since 1999. Butler is new to the Atlantic 10, but they are already the best team. Butler (16-2 SU, 11-5 ATS) is coming off a 64-63 buzzer-beating win over Gonzaga at home as a 2-point dog on Saturday. La Salle (12-5 SU, 5-6-2 ATS) fell at Xavier on Saturday, 70-63 getting 1.5.

NCAA FREE PICK: Take Butler. According to latest college basketball trends, Bulldogs are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a S.U. win, 5-0 ATS in their last 5 road games, 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a ATS win and are 39-19-4 ATS in their last 62 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record. La Salle is 1-4 ATS in their last 5 Wednesday games, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games vs. a team with a winning S.U. record and are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall.

Butler's' 64-63 victory over the then eighth-ranked Zags was their 13th victory in a row, and third this season over a top-10 squad. The Bulldogs continue to play well despite not having leading scorer Rotnei Clarke, who will miss his third consecutive game with a sprained neck. The Explorers are 3-3 in their past six games, falling 70-63 Saturday at Xavier. Wednesday's game matches two of the top scoring teams in the A-10 (La Salle is third at 72.8; Butler is fourth at 72.0). Brad Stevens' club has some dept as Butler sophomore forward Roosevelt Jones filled the void left by Clarke's absence, scoring 20 points and hitting the game-winning shot against Gonzaga. The Atlantic 10 co-player of the week, Jones averaged 15 points and 8.5 rebounds in two games.   Ramon Galloway averages a team-best 17 points, and ranks 17th nationally in steals (2.5) and 26th in 3-point shooting (42.7 percent) for La Salle but Galloway tweaked his right hamstring against Xavier. Guard Tyreek Duren (15 ppg) scored three points on 1-of-10 shooting. The Explorers allowed Xavier to shoot 57.8 percent from the field in Saturday's loss and that's a major concern against a solid shooting Bulldog team. Butler has no letdown. They continue to mow down Atlantic 10 competition.
