St. John’s is at Xavier tonight to try and pull out a win in their first game of the year. As you probably know, some news of international importance is taking place in Washington DC, but here we are, watching a game and commiserating about basketball.
St. John’s will have one fewer player tonight as David Caraher is taking a leave of absence from the team, staying home in North Carolina after the break. He played little and did not seem to have a large role on this year’s team, and we can only assume this is a prelude to a transfer. But we do not know yet.
Colby Jones did not make our pregame scouting report, but he is a low-usage freshman wing who makes his presence known on defense.
St. John’s: Posh Alexander / Greg Williams Jr. / Vince Cole / Julian Champagnie / Arnaldo Toro
Xavier: Paul Scruggs/ Colby Jones/ Nate Johnson/ Jason Carter/ Zach Freemantle
