How good is this team?

How good can they be against a high major opponent? On a sunny Saturday afternoon inside the Mohegan Sun casino, we start to find out as the Red Storm face off against the Arizona State Sun Devils in the Hall of Fame Tip Off Classic.

Arizona State has been playing a lot of youth, a number of new players, just as St. John’s has; it seems like every year they have faced each other, both ASU and the Johnnies have been in similar stages of development, doesn’t it?

And if it makes you feel anything, Bobby Hurley, the Arizona State coach who passed on taking the St. John’s job last spring, a job that eventually landed with Mike Anderson, thinks St. John’s got it right.

If you would like, enter an emoji in the comments that expresses your feelings about that sentiment.

Or, let’s just concentrate on the game and the team at hand.
