The Johnnies have won four out of five and face the surging Providence Friars tonight for a shot at the creamy middle of the Big East

But the Friars have been tough at home against the Big East, losing only once in double overtime to Seton Hall; Ed Cooley's bunch has taken out Creighton, Butler, Georgetown and Xavier in their friendly New England confines.

A win continues the narrative about the February surge. A loss reminds all that St. John's margin for error is long gone out the window... no pressure.

Rysheed Jordan gets the start tonight instead of Jamal Branch.
