A lot has happened since the Red Storm last officially took the court at Carnesecca for a game that counted - the Robert Morris game that everyone would like to forget. But this year's Johnnies are tasked with finding a way to get over the hump into the NCAA Tournament - an invitational tourney the team was tantalizingly close two in each of the last two years.
Can this team - centered by Chris Obekpa and led by a deep guard crop - get over the hump? There are surly fans swirling after Steve Lavin wasn't able to get the commitment from Isaiah Briscoe, and a pair of players now ineligible add muck to the drain.
But the Red Storm side that will take the floor has legitimate scoring threats; and given a smaller roster, we may see a team that takes advantage of its length and athleticism in the full court.
Come in and comment; the game isn't nationally televised if you don't have FSN and we'll try to keep you updated.
What are your predictions for tonight's score?
How many blocks will Chris Obekpa have?
