It’s a Carnesecca Arena game day, and today, the ball will tip off with some anticipation and hope despite the Red Storm’s sub-.500 record.
If St. John’s can win, the team will once again have a .500 record, and a shot at staying above water for the rest of the season — which will give them a chance to make the NIT.
The Marquette Golden Eagles are a tough out — filled with shooters and youthful size. St. John’s cannot afford a bad offensive performance this afternoon.
St. John’s is strong enough, good enough, and doggone it, people are watching the Johnnies. It’s time to maintain the level of play that earned wins over Duke and Villanova.
Again, it won’t be easy. The Big East is filled with tough teams. But it looks more possible than it did two weeks ago.
