The Basketball Hall of Fame Showcase at Mohegan Sun

NCAA Basketball: St. Joseph at Villanova Derik Hamilton-USA TODAY Sports

This game sure is starting early! St. John’s has started a game at 11:30 PM, a game that started at 11:00 AM, and now a second game that starts at 4:30 PM. The Johnnies start time is like a box of chocolates and whatnot.

Anyway, St. John’s will handle two big men who shoot threes in Anthony Longpre and Taylor Funk, a solid point guard from Brooklyn named Shamar Newkirk who is better at drawing fouls than shooting, and solid wing in James Demery.

Will the Saint Joseph’s Hawks provide a stern test for the Red Storm? Or will their permissive defense give the Storm a chance to run wild?
