Looks like the game start time has been pushed to around 4:40. NFL Playoffs or something...
Mustapha Heron is back in the starting lineup, and against the defense of Xavier, St. John’s will need him.

Last Season: Xavier outscored St. John’s by 22 over two games late in the season [84-73 at home, 81-68 on the road], abusing the Red Storm inside and casting doubt about the NCAA-worthiness of Chris Mullin’s Johnnies as St. John’s dipped under .500 in league play. LJ Figueroa scored 43 in those two games, though, and a fellow named Josh Roberts hit a then-career-high eight in the first contest.
Last Big East game: St. John’s fell behind by more than 20 points before roaring back, taking the lead, but going cold at the end of the contest against Butler, a loss.
Xavier weathered a 17-0 run from Villanova and came within four points at the end of the game, but fell to the Wildcats.
