St. John's vs. Texas Pan American Broncs - Game Thread!

It's time to don the sweaters, it's time to light the lights! It's time to get things started on the Red Storm show tonight!

St. John's takes on the Texas-Pan American Broncs at 7 pm on the new red Storm tradition of ugly sweater night. It's a nod to Lou Carnesecca's traditional sweater, and to the ridiculous holiday/ Christmas-themed sweaters people are compelled to wear around this time of year.

Unfortunately, I deleted all of mine from the collection over the years. They were awesome, heinous, reminiscent of snowflakes and nostalgia and of "my momma bought this." Do you have a good ugly sweater to wear? (If you have a photo, feel free to leave it in the comments section.)

Meanwhile, there is a game to play against the Broncs, coached by Ryan Marks. By Ken Pomeroy's rankings, they are one of the worst teams in Division I; they have 4 wins, and three of those wins are against non-Division I opponents. But they can shoot a little bit from the outside. For more detail, read the St. John's/ UTPA game preview.

And the other good news: Amir Garrett is eligible to play for St. John's.

Amir Garrett will be on the bench.

Rejoice! Hosannas! Seven scholarship players!

Here's hoping...

  • the Broncs catch a sound beating and the walk-ons - especially Sam Sealy - get some run before Big East play starts.
  • we see a little more offensive flow and creativity from Phil Greene and the crew.
  • we see some sharper shooting from D`Angelo Harrison.
  • we see how this team is going to play hard and hustle with only seven ballers.
