Game thread: St. John’s vs Creighton

Get up and try again, St. John’s

NCAA Basketball: St. John at Creighton Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

One more try.

St. John’s is 10-10, and tonight’s win, if they can get it, will get them over .500 on the season again.

Yes, no one expected to be saying this in late January, but life is life and the team keeps soldiering on, even as they come close in many games. Creighton may be a talented team, but the red Storm had their number for much of the game in Omaha, only to falter late, give up the lead, claw back but still fall short.

Will there be a strong home crowd?

Will the Johnnies get a win? Will a win be a catalyst for a late surge to salvage the season, which will likely end in a losing record?
