Hopefully, St. John’s won’t overlook Creighton before the barnburner at home against DePaul - just kidding! This is the game that could get the Johnnies back on track after two Big East losses.
Or it could be a game that demoralizes the team - the Red Storm have struggled in Omaha.
See: Feb 28, 2018, where the Red Storm got close at times but lost 82-68
See: Feb 28, 2016, where Mullin got tossed for arguing in a 100-59 loss
But Shamorie Ponds is back in the starting lineup - let’s see what he has to give.
