Basketball that Counts is just a day away for St. John’s. The Rumble takes a look at an exhibition that raised some alarm bells. We look forward to the first opponent with Stephen Thompson Jr. Plus, we delve into schedule quality with Chris from Blogging the Bracket.

This episode, we cover...

  • 1:00 Takeaways from the Maryville exhibition game and where we expected more from the season’s debut
  • 16:00 Looking ahead to Loyola MD -- what new coach Tavares Hardy brings, who to watch out for from the Greyhounds
  • 24:00 Talking schedule strength with Blogging the Bracket’s Chris Dobbertean - where the Johnnies could have scheduled better, which other Big East rivals also scheduled easy opponents, which teams did a good job scheduling (with an eye towards the postseason)
