St. John’s Red Storm
St. John’s bounced back and snapped a little two-game losing skid with a 15-point trouncing of Creighton in New York City.
Shamorie Ponds came back to play after missing a game with a back problem and scored 22 points and dropped five dimes without turning it over.
The Johnnies won the offensive rebound and team turnover battles and Creighton missed more 3-pointers than they normally would but that’s what happens on the road.
St. John’s is an interesting team because it can really score (83 ppg) and also holds opponents under 42 percent from the field. It has a legitimate star in Ponds and four other guys who score in double-figures, too.
I’m not sure the Red Storm is going to be as consistent as it needs to be to win the Big East in the regular season but it’s as dangerous as any team in the conference in a tournament setting.
Butler can counter Shamorie Ponds with a smooth lefty star of its own: Kamar Baldwin. The junior guard is averaging 17 points per game. He isn’t much of a 3-point shooter but is a dangerous slasher that can finish and shoots 85 percent from the line, if defenses choose to foul him.
The Bulldogs have played three consecutive road games and didn’t win one until the final one at DePaul. They lost by a point at Seton Hall and by a point at Xavier.
Against DePaul, the ‘Dogs shot 13-for-28 from three and scored 87 points with 18 assists. It’s going to feel good to get back home, where Butler will be for the next two.

Free St. John’s Red Storm vs. Butler Bulldogs NCAAB Prediction: Butler by eight or nine.
I’m just not sure I’m willing to go all the way there to double-digits. I’m not concerned about Butler after the blowout but there’s something to be said about the way Georgetown plays on the road against tougher competition. This team hangs in and I don’t think the score gets away from it before it’s over.
