Game thread: St. John’s vs Seton Hall

Johnnies try to get back over .500 on the season, and get ahead of DePaul for the 9th spot in the standings.

NCAA Basketball: St. John at Seton Hall Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Fr what it’s worth, Vegas has St. John’s favored by one point today at the Garden against Seton Hall. The Hall is missing wing Desi Rodriguez, but really need this game to stay on the right side of NCAA Tournament inclusion.

But St. John’s needs today’s game as a win to get above .500 and possibly make the NIT. And to get out of the Big East’s cellar, where they share a record with DePaul (but win on tiebreakers).

It’s the 99th all-time meeting between the two squads, separated by a river. Will we see a better St. John’s performance today? Will Shamorie Ponds put on a show? Will we see Kassoum Yakwe again, who plays fairly well against the Pirates?
