St. John’s Final: Red Storm outdone by Marquette 93-71

The Red Storm were failed by their defense. Much like the color of their uniforms, the mood around St. John’s was grey on Tuesday night. These somber feelings came at the hands of Marquette, who shot their way past the Red Storm by an 93-71 score. Both teams started this contest hot, as the score was knotted at the under-16 timeout. Before long the Golden Eagles had gotten out...

Takeaway: St. John’s bad night against Butler

The worst defensive performance in...? How much does the method matter? That question has to be on the mind of at least some St. John’s supporters after the Red Storm gave up 110 points to Butler on Wednesday. It could be important to note that Butler starters were on the floor late in the game, when it was out of reach (it seemed out of reach from the third possession of the game...

St. John’s at Butler final: Johnnies chewed up, 110-86

This game was, one could say, a dog. Butler, with the memories of both the loss to St. John’s at the beginning of Big East play and the knowledge that the team has lost three of four, came ready to defend their home court tonight. From the outset of tonight’s 110-86 beating, the Bulldogs we were crisp. And St. John’s was off, most notably on the glass. St. John’s falls to...

Seton Hall might still end up returning to the NCAA Tournament, but the Pirates need to arch their necks if they want to find St. John’s in the standings.

St. John’s vs Seton Hall final: Johnnies hold off Pirates 78-70

A team effort. To borrow from the TV show Heroes: Stop Delgado, save the world? This afternoon, St. John's was locked and loaded against the Seton Hall Pirates. No, it wasn't the prettiest game, especially in the first half, but the choppy game - and solid ball protection - earned St. John's the win 78-70. Consider that St. John's hit three of 11 attempted threes, a staple of their...

Jenkins to start as No. 2 Villanova hosts Georgetown

VILLANOVA, Pa. -- Villanova's starting lineup looked a little odd Saturday night in what wound up as a 13-point victory over St. John's. Eric Paschall started in place of Kris Jenkins, the hero of last year's national championship game with a game-winning 3-pointer to defeat North Carolina. Jenkins entered the lineup slightly more than three minutes into the game. Coach Jay Wright...

St. John’s final: Villanova cruises to 92-79 win over the Red Storm

Offensive woes haunt the Red Storm St. John’s dropped its second meeting of the year versus the defending national champions. Villanova defeated St. John’s 92-79 at the Wells Fargo Center.

St. John’s surge can be traced to this X-factor’s extra effort

It was no coincidence St. John’s best performance of the season came on the same night Bashir Ahmed produced his best effort.

Derrick Walker, a 2017 forward recruit, chooses Tennessee

The Red Storm hotly pursued Walker; are still in search of a big man. Derrick Walker, the Kansas City-area forward who visited St. John’s last weekend, has chosen Tennessee - much to the Red Storm’s chagrin. With the departure of Yankuba Sima and the arrest of center Zach Brown (who was released from his Letter of Intent) St. John’s had a deeper need for the big man. Predictions...
