St. John’s is about to tip off in Omaha, hoping to pull out a win against the top-ten ranked Creighton Bluejays.
A glimmer of hope or interest, though: Marcus Zegarowski, the Creighton point guard, leader, and possible Big East Player of the Year, is out for this game with a hamstring issue. Shereef Mitchell will start in his place.
