St. John's may have found some depth last week with Amar Alibegovic logging some solid time. The Johnnies definitely found their first win on the road at Providence. Can they keep the winning streak going, find their top-25 level groove and avoid a letdown at DePaul?

Storylines

Phil Greene IV plays his last game in front of friends and family in his hometown. In the past two games, he has gone scoreless, a combined 0/7 in 28 minutes of play. Let's hope he drops 14 points like in his first game against the Blue Demons in the AllState Arena.

Rysheed Jordan came with a far better game against the Friars last week. Can he play smart basketball against a team designed to force miscues and hurry opponents?

Supposedly, point guard target Marcus LoVett is supposed to be in the house to take in the game and see what he might look like in the red and white.
