St. John’s basketball looking to give its head coach a milestone victory against Butler.

The St. John’s basketball program is the hottest team in the Big East Conference but they are playing for more than a chance to extend its winning streak and chase down an NCAA Tournament bid on Tuesday night.

If the Johnnies (13-7, 7-6 Big East) defeat Butler (6-10, 5-8 Big East), it would be the 400th career victory for head coach Mike Anderson.

Anderson, who is in the midst of his second season in Queens, has never suffered a losing season as a head coach and doesn’t appear to see his first this year despite a rocky start to Big East play.
