St. John’s comes into Indy after the loss to UConn, but is 8-4 in conference play overall. Senior guard Unique Drake leads the Red Storm with 18.5 points per game..

One of the biggest x-factors of the game will be the three-point line. Butler ranks second in the Big East shooting 38.5% from three as a team, while St. John’s is ninth, shooting just 30.6% from three. If Butler can heat up from beyond the arc, it could go a long way in helping the Bulldogs secure the victory.
