Dayton, OH (Sports Network) - Butler Bulldogs guard Rotnei Clarke was carted off on a stretcher during the first half of Saturday's contest against Dayton.
The Bulldogs' season-leading score was injured on a fastbreak play, where he took a hard foul from Dayton's Matt Derenbecker and collided head first into the padded area of the backboard stand. He remained on the ground for several minutes before he was helped onto a stretcher.
He was taken to a hospital for X-rays to determine the extent of the injury. He gave a thumbs up to the crowd before leaving the arena.
