What to Know

After two games on the road, the St. John’s Red Storm are heading back home. St. John’s and the #15 Villanova Wildcats will face off in a Big East battle at 8:30 p.m. ET on Tuesday at Madison Square Garden. Both teams seek to continue their momentum from their previous wins.

This past Saturday, the Red Storm narrowly escaped with a victory as the squad sidled past the Butler Bulldogs 75-72. St. John’s’ success was the result of a balanced attack that saw several players step up, but guard Julian Champagnie led the charge as he had 21 points in addition to eight rebounds.

Meanwhile, while not quite a landslide, the game between Villanova and the Connecticut Huskies this past Saturday was still a pretty decisive one as Villanova wrapped it up with an 85-74 win at home. Villanova’s forward Eric Dixon looked sharp as he dropped a double-double on 24 points and 12 boards. Dixon hadn’t helped his team much against the Marquette Golden Eagles last Wednesday, so this was a nice turnaround for him. Dixon’s points were the most he has had all year.

The Red Storm are expected to lose this next one by 6. Their home court has been no bettor’s paradise, as they’ve failed to beat the spread in ten of their 14 home games.

The wins brought St. John’s up to 13-9 and the Wildcats to 17-6. A couple stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: St. John’s ranks 14th in college basketball when it comes to steals per game, with 9.3 on average. But Villanova enters the matchup with only 4.4 steals given up per game on average, good for third best in college basketball. Ball control might end up being a major factor in this one.
