Chris Mullin’s St. John’s boss finds a reason to believe

Anton Goff is as surprised and disappointed as everyone in and around the St. John’s program. He expected the talk at this time of the year to be about contending for the NCAA Tournament, not how to fix this sinking Red Storm ship. But the St. John’s athletic director also sees light at the end...

Opinion: coming to terms with this season

This St. John’s season is deflating. So we take a moment to meditate. It felt glorious to many fans when the St. John’s Red Storm started the season 10-2 going into Big East play. Over here in the Rumble staff “room” (if you will, in conversations with the writers), it was exciting to cover a team that might be a fringe NCAA team, the rise of a program. It’s not even a month later...

St. John’s bid for massive upset of No. 1 Villanova falls just short

Madison Square Garden was packed, and unwilling to divulge who was the home team. Villanova blue matched St. John’s red. Chants of “Let’s go Johnnies” quickly segued into “Air-ball” taunts of Red Storm forward Bashir Ahmed. The short trip up I-95 made it easy to see coming. The quick ride into Penn Station makes it...

Chris Mullin won’t make excuses for shorthanded St. John’s

This was the doomsday scenario. This was the worry about this talented, yet thin, roster. One injury could derail the possibilities, turn a promising season into a demoralizing one. Three games into the Big East — all losses — have the Red Storm reeling, in desperate need of a victory. Marcus LoVett’s sprained left knee,...

St. John’s can’t buy a Big East win

OMAHA, Neb.  — Marcus Foster scored 25 points with five 3-pointers, Martin Krampelj added 14 points with 11 rebounds, and Creighton rallied to beat St. John’s 78-71 on Monday night for the Red Storm’s third straight loss. Krampelj scored 10 points in a 16-2 run and Creighton rallied from a seven-point halftime deficit to a...

NCAA scandal leads program-changing recruit to St. John’s

There was no game for St. John’s on Sept. 29, no recruiting commitments. But it was a big day for the Red Storm’s future — the day the FBI announced the results of its investigation into alleged mass corruption, bribery and wire fraud involving some of college basketball’s top programs, which led to the arrest...

St. John’s gets blitzed by Providence in Big East opener

St. John’s missed its chance to grab control of its game with Providence late in the first half Thursday night and paid for it. A five-point Red Storm advantage with 4:14 to go before the intermission quickly became a one-point Friars’ lead at the break and Providence went on to a 94-72 win at Carnesecca...

St. John’s survived without Marcus LoVett, winning four of the five games the sophomore point guard missed because of a sprained left knee. That experience will come in handy now for the Red Storm, because all signs point to LoVett remaining out Thursday when coach Chris Mullin’s team begins Big East Conference play at Carnesecca...

St. John’s on the rise as non-conference slate winds down

By this point of the past two years, virtually all suspense had been stripped from St. John’s season. The non-conference slate had let us know how the Big East schedule likely would unfold. In 2015, the Red Storm closed their non-conference schedule with three straight losses — including setbacks to Incarnate Word and NJIT —...

Heading into the spring, Ed Blankmeyer’s St. John’s baseball club will certainly have the “top dog” target on their back. For the fourth consecutive year, the Red Storm are predicted to finish first in the Big East Conference, and the individual awards are pouring in. Watching this St...

St. John’s flips a switch and isn’t haunted by uneven play yet

Soon, a first half like this will be lamented. Soon, St. John’s won’t be able to get away with stretches of lackadaisical play and loose possessions. Soon, it will be the conference season when Chris Mullin’s Red Storm will truly be judged, and the level of opponent will rise significantly. But for now, a performance...

Will the 6-foot guard be available for the Holiday Festival? Marcus LoVett’s injury could keep the 6-foot scoring guard sidelined with the Holiday Festival game against local rival Iona on tap. LoVett’s status for Sunday’s game against Iona is uncertain right now. Without him, the Red Storm have gone 2-1 - against a weak Sacred Heart team, a solid Grand Canyon squad on the road...

Chris Mullin froze at the question — “Are you happy with your team’s performance through eight games” — like it was a pump-fake. Happy? No, the St. John’s coach is not happy. Pleased with a 7-1 record? Sure. Encouraged by the Red Storm’s strides defensively? Without question. But definitely not happy. “We don’t use that...

St. John’s erupts with monster 2nd half against Sacred Heart

So far, the other shoe hasn’t dropped. The sky hasn’t fallen. The expectations haven’t been too much. Through eight games, St. John’s hasn’t suffered the kind of poor non-conference loss that has typified Chris Mullin’s previous two seasons, and would ruin the Red Storm’s big March plans. It seemed very possible after 20 minutes on...

St. John’s learns Michael Porter’s brother is a stud, too

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — St. John’s didn’t have to deal with Michael Porter Jr., the likely one-and-done top-five draft pick who underwent back surgery Tuesday.
