CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) -- Virginia defensive tackle Chris Brathwaite had been declared ineligible and is no longer enrolled at the university.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Andrew Smith scored 15 points, Kellen Dunham added 11 and Butler used a stifling defense to pull away from Richmond for a 62-47 victory in its first Atlantic 10 Conference home game Wednesday night.
