In a matchup featuring the two most talked about (albeit for different reasons) teams of the week, the Butler Bulldogs travel to Queens to take on the (15) St. John's Red Storm. Butler was in the news for naming Chris Holtmann their permanent head coach and giving him a multi-year extension, while St. John's was in the news with the story that guard Rysheed Jordan would be taking an indefinite leave of absence. This game will certainly not be short on storylines.

What's at stake
Both Butler and St. John's need a win to avoid falling to 0-2 in conference play. The Red Storm also need a win if they want any hopes of staying ranked. They come into this game at number 15, but that'll surely take a hit after their loss to Seton Hall.
