The big news: center Chris Obekpa, who had been coming on as an offensive option and a defensive forcem will be out 10-14 days with an ankle injury suffered in practice.

St. John's knocked off the Butler Bulldogs at Hinkle at a point where both teams seemed doomed to the bottom of the standings.

But every game is a chance for growth, and the Red Storm have surged, looking capable of beating any team - especially in the confines of their home arenas.

Will success get the best of the Johnnies? Will the rotation expand against a weaker team? Will players be more concerned with style points more than taking care of business?

St. John's has a shot at the NCAA Tournament. But they cannot lose to teams like Butler.
