St. John's gets an afternoon matinee in the state where Jakarr Sampson grew up, and within driving distance for Sir`Dominic Pointer's family. Despite their solid passing, Cincinnati can be passive against a zone. Could the matchup zone defense and pressure slow the Bearcats down?

The Johnnies look to bounce back from an overtime loss against Villanova midweek, but face a tough test against the talented and experienced Bearcats.
