Gametime! Open thread, St. John's basketball at Louisville Cardinals

Loading Scores

The St. John's Red Storm prepares to play the pressing and trapping Louisville Cardinals in the most delicious arena in all of college basketball. See the Rumble in the Garden preview notes. And if you want to catch up on how the Red Storm are doing, take a look at this week's post, St. John's at 6 games in - which discusses how St. John's has been successful using Big East-only stats.

This game's main concern seems to be "how will Dwight Hardy do against the Cardinal pressure?" The bigs need to assert themselves tonight despite the speed game; and the defense of Paris Horne 'will be key, as well. And boy, if Dwayne Polee II can get out in transition... dunk highlights aplenty!
