We'll be keeping track of the action and the score as St. John's faces off against the Kentucky Wildcats in the second tip-off of the Big East/ SEC Challenge. For some reason, Providence and South Carolina start a half hour earlier.

The Red Storm opened as 22 point underdogs. As of this morning it was down... to 21.5...

Vegas sees a blowout. I see an opportunity to see what the squad can do, on the first game of a midwestern road trip. It's the first year of a development process, as Coach Lavin sees it, and becoming a power doesn't come easy. Even if tonight's game is ugly, it's just one game.

The team, I believe, will stay in the midwest until after Monday's game in Detroit. Below, links to our pregame articles, some more stat information, and, well, get to commenting!
