Game thread 1: St. John’s vs Saint Peter’s Peacocks

If you don’t have someone to turn to and say “what the hell was that?”, we have you covered.

It feels strange to watch a St. John’s basketball game with your usual crew, or next to your friends, or at a bar with friends who don’t understand why you keep talking about the potential of Greg Williams Jr.

We have you covered. The Rumble game threads are back, and we will keep talking about the Red Storm, hopefully with our regulars, all season.

Sit back, relax, join in. Unlike a Zoom call, no one can see your messy room, and you can get up and go to the bathroom without embarrassment.

[Catch up with the St. John’s season preview]

The Johnnies face New Jersey’s Saint Peter’s, out of the MAAC conference, without star sophomore forward Julian Champagnie, who is reportedly sitting out with a boot on. Boots on basketball courts never bode well, but the team has a number of interesting forwards to get the scoring started.

Who will emerge? Let’s find out.
