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.
