Some tendencies to watch for:

Generally, the Hawks will look to be deliberate on offense. But when they push in transition, Carl Jones or Langston Galloway will take the shot, and they are not afraid to stop and spot up for a deep jumper.

Ronald Roberts' offense is strictly at the rim. If he's dribbling 18 feet from the basket, play him to pass (obviously, don't leave him an open lane to drive. Anyone can score given a path to the basket).

Carl Jones is a very good mid-range shooter. The other players have not shown the same skill. Strangely, his shooting percentage at the rim is far lower than the rest of the regulars.

St. John's will thrive in a wild, turnover-filled up and down game - provided the turnovers are equally distributed.
