St. John’s at Butler: game thread

St. John’s might need a win, but Lavall Jordan’s group hopes to grab a win they need, too.

NCAA Basketball: Seton Hall at Butler Marc Lebryk-USA TODAY Sports

Today’s game will be a test not just of pace, but whether the Red Storm can shoot well enough to get past a Butler team that has struggled. The Bulldogs have played a tough schedule, and have a win over Porter Moser’s Oklahoma squad, but they are 11-11 on the season — and two of those wins are over non-Division I teams. They shoot a lot of threes, and shoot them poorly.

laying Butler on the road has resulted in seven straight defeats for St. John’s — many by double digits — so the Butler game is no gimme.
