The final regular season game for the Johnnies in Mike Anderson's inaugural year should be an entertaining one. The Golden Eagles have the nation's best scorer and solid talent. They also do not pressure opponents, so if St. John's can make good passes and some shots, the game should be competitive.
Marquette had lost four of their last five, but have been close in those games. They may come out on fire, trying to solidify their NCAA Tournament seeding - and gain confidence for the Big East Tourney.
Will either Josh Roberts or Ian Steere play today?
