This Big East matchup features the Butler Bulldogs and the St. John’s Red Storm.
The last meeting between these teams in January ended in a Butler 80-71 win.
The Bulldogs have won two games in a row now and have moved back into the conversation for the third seed in the Big East. They will need to finish the season strong if they are going to earn an at-large bid to the NCAA tournament.
A large part of the Bulldogs offense this year has fallen on Kamar Baldwin’s shoulders. He is the leading scorer for Butler an averages 17.2 points per game. He also leads the team in rebounds, steals and blocks. In the first meeting with the Red Storm, Baldwin scored 30 points and will need to have a similar type performance if not a better performance if Butler wants to win on the road.
The Butler defense has done a decent job overall as they allow under 70 points per game on average. They need to do a better job at closing out on their opponents since they are shooting 44.6% from the field. Butler managed to hold the Red Storm under their scoring average last time around, so look for a similar defensive performance to complete the sweep.
St. John’s Red Storm
The Red Storm have really struggled this season in the Big East and are one of the teams tied for third place with a 5-6 conference record. A win for St. John’s would certainly help their chances for a NCAA tournament berth.
The Red Storm have overall been a very high scoring team this season. They average 79.7 points per game, which ranks 40th in the country. Their offense has recently struggled as they have not scored more than 71 points in the last three games. Of course the Red Storm will likely need to score in the high 70’s if they are going to beat a solid Butler defense.
The Red Storm have had a ton of problems limiting their opponents rebounding. They allow an average of 35.7 boards per game, which ranks 328th in the country. This and the fact that they are allowing 73.5 points per game have led to their struggles. If St. John’s is going to split with Butler, they will need to win the rebounding battle.
