Going into the Cincinnati loss, I took a quick look at how the St. John's basketball players were performing in Big East conference play. I focused on conference play because:
- that is where a few players started to lose steam last year, with guys like DJ Kennedy passing up shots;
- St. John's non-conference schedule can charitably be called "soft" like a Care Bear and is therefore not a good predictor of overall skill;
- and Big East play is where the St. John's players need to compete.
There are individual profiles for each player with a short narrative. There are also their tempo-free and traditional stats from last conference season and this conference season in a table.
Despite the beatings, there are some solid performances from Paris Horne and DJ Kennedy; Rob Thomas comes off the bench shooting; and Justin Burrell's shot attempts are way down. Enjoy!
