Butler's Clarke expects to return Saturday

The SportsXchange

Butler Bulldogs guard Rotnei Clarke expects to return to game action Jan. 26 against Temple.

The team's leading scorer at 16.3 points per game left last weekend's game against Dayton on a stretcher after suffering a sprained neck when he crashed into the base support of the backboard.

"The doctors said I needed to be symptom-free for a week," Clarke told CBSSports.com. "And I didn't have any symptoms for the first time on Thursday."

The Bulldogs are 2-0 since Clarke was injured, including a buzzer-beating victory over Gonzaga on Saturday. Clarke will miss a third game Wednesday at LaSalle.
