On the last Tuesday night in February, St. John’s has a chance to keep their NCAA Tournament hopes alive with a win at Villanova.
Be fair: a rational person hoped for a winning record, not an actual NCAA Tournament berth, given the amount of turnover from last season. But a number of newcomers have become difference-makers, and the staff has much of the team filling roles fairly well.
Still, the defense needs some work, and the losses early in the season have left the Red Storm on the outside looking in during this shortened season. Where there’s hoop, there’s hope, though, and tonight is one of what should be at least four more chances for a win this season.
