As we await news about the future of this hoops season, let us reflect on the Red Storm’s 17-15 record and the players we got to see get run.

The game ended at halftime, and we are going to decide that the Red Storm record is 17.5-15.

But here we are, and there may not be more basketball to talk about.

With the Big East announcing that the conference tournament is over — and knowing that most other sports leagues are also cancelling seasons or putting their seasons on pause — the chances are that the NCAA Tournament will also fall by the wayside.

(After all, we don’t even have testing widely available for the COVID-19/ coronavirus, which means we don’t know who is carrying and spreading the virus to people who can be killed by it. Read more from the CDC.)

While the important thing for everyone to do is to stay safe, wash your hands, negotiate work-from-home situations, and the like, you’ve probably come back here to commiserate about the Johnnies and pass time.

So let’s ask:

How do you think the season went?

It’s the third straight winning season overall for the Red Storm, which is nothing to sneeze at, given the last 20 years.

One reader went in on how each player performed this season.

That’s a good discussion idea!

So let’s open up a space for your opinions about this St. John’s season. It was the first year of Mike Anderson, and while injuries to Mustapha Heron and then Josh Roberts hurt the depth, LJ Figueroa put up points, and Greg Williams, Jr., Marcellus Earlington and Julian Champagnie look like part of a strong core for the Red Storm.

Rasheem Dunn brought an aggressiveness and quickness that reflects what Mike Anderson wanted to do. Nick Rutherford was, despite some faults, quite a find for the Johnnies as a grad transfer. David Caraher and Damien Sears came on late as contributors.

What’s your take on the team?
