Live game thread: St. John’s vs Marquette

With an absence in the lineup and a surprise change to the starters, can St. John’s find some more fight against the Golden Eagles?

Chris Hagan

St. John’s is clearly in the “in search of answers” portion of the season. Posh Alexander will start tonight’s game on the bench, and the Red Storm will start Dylan Addae-Wusu, Montez Mathis, David Jones, O’Mar Stanley and Joel Soriano.

No word yet on what prompted this action, but... should starting positions be set in stone, especially when a player is underperforming?

Also: guard Andre Curbelo is reported as out of today’s game for not adhering to team standards, according to Zach Braziller of the NY Post; guard Rafael Pinzon is a game-time decision.
