To quote a great book, Go the F**k To Sleep [readings by Jennifer Garner and Werner Herzog], “The tiger reclines in the simmering jungle/ The sparrow has silenced her cheep. ..” - it’s time to go to sleep.
But not until some of us stay up hella late and watch basketball from Arizona! Go Johnnies!

Last meeting: This is the first meeting between the teams.
Legitimately: I’m probably not going to be able to stay up. If you are, feel free to comment on the game action, which one of us will watch in the wee hours of the morning and recap for everyone.
St. John’s is without Marcus Lovett. St. John’s are still six-point favorites. Grand Canyon can play a little soft, especially inside. But St. john’s isn’t big or physical in the paint. Still, the Johnnies should be quicker than the Grand Canyon guards - even Casey Benson, a transfer from Oregon who had been very good in his three years there.
Foul trouble, errant shooting and fatigue could be issues.
