Game thread: St. John’s vs Georgetown

Hoyas charge into MSG looking for revenge — and to send St. John’s to a second-straight loss.

Wendell Cruz

Once again, the Big East has scheduled the St. John’s/ Georgetown nostalgia-fest earlier in the conference season so we can move our mind to other things.

With that said, this is an important game. Withe three road contests in a row coming up at Creighton, Duke and Marquette where Chris Mullin’s side likely won’t be favored, the need for a win is significant.

The previous game saw a Hoya team missing two significant pieces. Today, the high-flying Mac McClung and big man Trey Mourning will be back on the court for the rivals from the nation’s capital.

Will the Johnnies contain Patrick Ewing’s deeper squad?
