The winds of March have blown in, cold and blustery, as the Johnnies try to finish their season on an upswing.
Now at .500 — with at least four games to go in the regular season and opening round of the Big East Tournament — St. John’s is locked into the bottom three of the conference standings. Still, today’s game is an opportunity to put the strengths of this team together, build for next year and, with two or three postseason wins — position the squad for a possible NIT berth.
Opportunity awaits. Let’s talk about it.
