Who’s Playing

St. John’s @ Butler

Current Records: St. John’s 11-9; Butler 11-11

What to Know

Get ready for a Big East battle as the St. John’s Red Storm and the Butler Bulldogs will face off at noon ET on Saturday at Hinkle Fieldhouse. The teams split their matchups last year, with St. John’s winning the first 69-57 at home and Butler taking the second 76-73.

The Red Storm didn’t have too much trouble with the Georgetown Hoyas on the road on Thursday as they won 90-77. Five players on St. John’s scored in the double digits: guard Julian Champagnie (27), center Joel Soriano (14), forward Aaron Wheeler (13), guard Dylan Addae-Wusu (11), and guard Posh Alexander (10). Champagnie had some trouble finding his footing against the Providence Friars on Tuesday, so this was a step in the right direction.

Meanwhile, it was close but no cigar for Butler as they fell 68-66 to the Xavier Musketeers on Wednesday. Butler’s defeat came about despite a quality game from guard Jayden Taylor, who had 18 points along with five boards.

St. John’s’ victory lifted them to 11-9 while Butler’s loss dropped them down to 11-11. In St. John’s’ win, Julian Champagnie shot 6-for-12 from beyond the arc and finished with 27 points and six rebounds and Joel Soriano had 14 points in addition to nine rebounds and four blocks. We’ll see if Butler have a strategy for dealing with them or if they lead their team to another successful outing.
