Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Rotnei Clarke snapped out of a recent mini slump and Butler passed its first test in the Atlantic 10.

Clarke nailed six 3-pointers and netted 28 points in No. 14 Butler's Atlantic 10 debut, a 72-66 triumph over Saint Joseph's.

The Arkansas transfer Clarke, who tallied just 10 points while going 2-of-15 from beyond the arc over his last two games coming in, was 6-of-10 from 3- point range Wednesday.

Andrew Smith added 24 points -- one off his career high -- and 10 rebounds for the Bulldogs (13-2, 1-0 A-10), who have reeled off 10 straight victories.

Chris Wilson nailed five treys within the first five minutes and finished with 15 points to lead the Hawks (8-5, 0-1), who had a three-game winning streak snapped.
