St. John's travels to the iconic Hinkle Fieldhouse, in Indiana, the place where the movie Hoosiers was filmed (and the real-life state Indiana state championship was played).

Unlike the trip to Europe, or even the journey to San Francisco last year, this isn't a trip for sightseeing. St. John's is well behind the rest of the Big East and needs a run to reasonably think about the NIT and the NCAA Tournaments.

Which team will show up? The team that raced out to a huge lead over the Seton Hall Pirates on Thursday? Or the team that stumbled out of the gate and almost stumbled at the finish line?
