    NEW YORK — In the final minutes of West Virginia’s 79-60 victory over St. John’s Saturday afternoon at Madison Square Garden, Da’Sean Butler drained another 3-pointer — his seventh of the day — over St. John’s forward Sean Evans.

    All he could do was flash a smile and slowly backpedal down the court.

    After struggling to score 9 points on 2-for-7 shooting in the first half, Butler made 7 of 11 shots and scored 24 points in a second half in which the Mountaineers outscored St. John’s, 57-27. The Newark, N.J. native went a perfect 7-for-7 from behind the arc on the afternoon and finished with a season-best 33 points.
