So, it’s the middle of January and St. John’s is at an inflection point. At 1-5 in the league, the Red Storm clearly want to have better basketball in front of them, but that does not come just by chance. The team needs to string together some strong performances, especially defensively, and find their identity.

Is this game, against a young Butler team, the one where they find their rhythm?
