    Late tip off for the rematch with St. John's.

    Butler breaks a 3 game losing streak with the 10 point win over DePaul

    St. John's meanwhile, has been on fire. Red Storm currently have gone 6-1 since beating Butler in NYC. Those wins include:

    @ UConn
    Home against Utah Valley
    @ DePaul
    @ Marquette
    Home against Villanova
    @ Providence

    Arguably, SJU is the hottest team in the BEast right now.

    Butler's record when...
    Opponent scores greater than or equal to 65 in regulation: 0-9
    Opponent scores greater than or equal to 60 in regulation: 3-1
    less than 60: 3-0

    Think positive. Thanks for coming out DePaul. I fell asleep during the second half, but from what I can tell there were more lineups without the duo of Nze/Golden/JMM. LaVall is also playing to win by not playing freshmen as much. Gotta handle the press and limit turnovers this game

    I would of liked to see Tate get more time. I know he got in foul trouble in the first half but should of been able to get more then 3 minutes on the floor. I am hoping we see more of the one big with four guards line up against St. Johns.

    I do think you are right that he is playing to win. Everyone can debate that, but winning is important - too much losing breeds a culture you don't want - I give you Depaul as an example of that. Numerous complaints about David being on the floor and he is defintely rusty, but when he's out there the defense works much better - does anyone have the plus minus for him in that game?

    It just came out on my board and yep...pk it is. I think a month ago we looked at this game as maybe a "should be a win" but the way SJU is rolling...gonna be a huge challenge. I'd go guard heavy with Nze as the only *big*. Harris, AT, Bo, Bolden and Nze.

    Dawg fan through and through, but Johnnies are on a tear right now

    If BU can prevail, it be a feather in the proverbial cap and should provide an enormous boost of confidence for the stretch run for this young team. This will be huge challenge in terms of mental toughness.

    Woah...it just jumped to Butler -2.5. Within maybe 2 hours. What do they know that we don't. Whatever it is, let's hope they're right. Would be a nice W in the fold. SJU top 70 kenpom. Would be sweet.

    It always makes me wonder who in each major program is being paid under the table for info. It happens. Vegas always knows.

    If that worked, Butler would be NCAA Tournament Champions 35 years in a row!

    Welp... that confirms I’m staying away. Anytime a line makes zero sense, you’re the idiot if you bet.

    No way dude. Plenty of other opportunities out there today/tonight. This one has me scratching the dome a little.

    A bit of betting wisdom I've learned (while puking in my mouth aplenty)...riding the fighting Holtmanns has turned one hell of a profit. Covered again last night. They're on fire. I can't stand doing it, but hey, a win is a win.
