Game thread: St. John’s hosts DePaul

Saturday afternoon basketball - good for kids and adults alike!

NCAA Basketball: DePaul at St. John Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

This is a lovely afternoon to be inside watching basketball, isn’t it? As the “bomb cyclone” (really?) brings the NYC area to frigid temperatures, the Johnnies try to knock off the visiting Blue Demons in the first of three games at home.

The next two games are Georgetown and Villanova, so there is always the chance of looking past the Demons...

It could be a tougher game than some would imagine, with the Demons bringing in a long starting five and aggressively attacking the glass. They can get hot from outside.

Can St. John’s win and get their first Big East win?
