Make sure there’s some coffee brewed. It’s going to be a late night.
For the fourth season in a row, the Red Storm will participate in the first round of the Big East Tournament. St. John’s goes into the post-season playing poorly, having lost three games in a row.
Opposing St. John’s is a DePaul Blue Demons team that is 2-0 against the Johnnies. Leading DePaul is Max Strus. After St. John’s held Strus to 14 points (4/13 FG, 2/8 3PT) in their first meeting, he exploded for 43 points (14/22 FG, 6/10 3PT) against the Red Storm only ten days ago.
