Red Storm Preview

Foe: St. John's Red Storm (10-6) (1-3)

Recent History: Nova has won the past four games against the Red Storm, but St. John's leads the all-time series 58-42. Last season Nova won 60-42 in a defensive battle at MSG, holding St. John's to only 13 points in the first half. The Red Storm suffered a crushing loss when leading scorer Anthony Mason Jr. (son of the former NBA player) injured his foot after three games, causing him to miss the rest of the season. They are now led by sophomores D.J. Kennedy (13.3 ppg) and Paris Horne (13.2 ppg).

Best Win: 71-65 vs. #10 Notre Dame

Worst Loss: 75-54 at Providence

Famous Alumni: Ron Artest, Lou Carnesecca, Mike Francesa, John Franco, Mark Jackson, Chris Mullin, Howie Schwab, Bob Sheppard

Fun Facts:
  • St. John's changed its mascot from Redmen to Red Storm in 1994.
  • Last year was St. John's 100th anniversary of college basketball.
  • St. John's has the 5th most wins (1,673) in college basketball history, but is the only team of the five without a national championship.

Final Verdict: Villanova has to win this game. In a conference this difficult, you must beat the bottom-dwellers at home. Considering Nova's success in the Pavilion (23 straight wins) and their recent success against St. John's, all signs point to a victory.
