St. John's finds themselves at 1-4 in Big East play, and need a strong run starting about, oh, now if they want to keep hopes of a Big East Tournament berth alive. Even winning all of the remaining home games would leave St. John's with eight wins; the team will need a few W's on the road and to hold serve at home.
The Johnnies may be fortunate to face the Big East's worst offense in eighth-place Marquette, but at ninth in the standings, the Red Storm have no reason to feel anything but the hot breath of urgency on their backs; the Johnnies have the league's worst defense through five games, mostly thanks to some truly bad second halves that we highlighted this morning.
New grey uniforms for the Red Storm!
Phil Greene IV will be honored for passing the 1,000 point marker.
Phil Greene will be presented a commemorative ball prior to the tip for becoming the 49th person in St.John's history with 1k points. #SJUBB— Jammel Cutler (@JCut_NBA) January 21, 2015
World series champion rookie and St. John's baseball star Joe Panik is honored tonight!
St. John's plays a team just as bad at rebounding and as undersized as they are!
D`Angelo Harrison's calf is hopefully recovered so he can carry the Red Storm to victory!
