Time to do this thing!

St. John’s vs Georgetown, an opportunity for the TV stations to show us more Ewing vs Mullin memories. No one ever shows Mike Sweetney vs Marcus Hatten highlights. What’s up with that?

Anyway, St. John’s goes toe to toe with Patrick Ewing’s Georgetown side. The Johnnies are hoping a new look will mean new results.

In the first matchup, LJ FIgueroa went off for 23 points and Rasheem Dunn dropped 18.

In the second matchup, Mustapha Heron and Rasheem Dunn led the team with 16 each.

Heron is sidelined with a boot on.

In the first matchup, Greg Williams Jr. did not play, and Julian Champagnie went scoreless with one shot and one rebound. In the second game, that duo combined for 14 points.

The two have been hot of late, and we will expect to see more from each of them tonight. Williams has scored in double figures in his last four games, while Champagnie has scored in double figures in his last seven.
