Open Game Thread: St. John's at Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 8 PM Eastern

Rumble in the Garden Game Preview

News: Versatile forward Carleton Scott is out for a number of weeks with a hamstring tear, and will miss the St. John's game. Expect Eric Atkins to take his place again in the starting lineup for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Atkins played 39 minutes against the Connecticut Huskies, with 5 assists and 3 steals. Scott is their best defensive rebounder and shot blocker... this bodes well for a Johnny win, though Notre Dame's Joey Brooks will log some time off the bench, and could be an x-factor.

St. John's point guard Malik Boothe might still be out/ limited for tonight's game.

Vegas Line: Notre Dame -6
