Rysheed Jordan returns tonight from the death of his grandmother (we all know his "leave of absence" was more than that). Will it be enough to elevate the Red Storm game?

Maybe, maybe not. Facing as top-ten team that is organized and has had St. John's number when the Johnnies were fully stocked is a tall task, and Steve Lavin's squad needs to find a way or face 0-3 in the Big East - like last season's early January swoon.

Bill raftery ad Gus Johnson are on the call again. And here is our game preview.
