Kellen Dunham scored 16 points and Butler beat Georgetown 64-58 in an all-Big East matchup for third place at the Battle 4 Atlantis on Friday afternoon.

Alex Barlow added 11 for the Bulldogs (5-1), who won two of their three games in the Bahamas.

Butler missed 119 of its first 168 shots in the tournament then got hot at precisely the right time Friday. The Bulldogs made 9 of 11 shots during one second-half stretch, good enough to help put this one away.

Issac Copeland scored 16 points on 7 for 10 shooting for Georgetown (4-2), Paul White added 13 and D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera finished with 12 for the Hoyas.

Georgetown lost for the first time in four all-time meetings with Butler. All three of Georgetown's games in the tournament were decided in the final minute, two on the final shot.
