Game thread: St. John’s at #21 Creighton

Johnnies face the big noise of the Omaha crowd this evening

NCAA Basketball: Creighton at Providence Paul Rutherford-USA TODAY Sports

The Johnnies have... had their struggles in Omaha. This team, after a week off to lick their wounds, will need to come out with a new level of grit and confidence to disrupt the Bluejays.

Make no mistake — the Red Storm can make the Creighton attack falter. But the Johnnies need to bring a high level of energy and the will to attack, plus a smart plan, to knock off Creighton in Omaha.
