St. John’s is coming off a year in which a senior-laden team led them back into the tournament for the first time in nine years.

They still had a solid, not great, tourney resume; mostly bolstered by their eight game gauntlet against top 25 teams (as a result they had the second ranked schedule and were 27th in [...]

Johnnies proving they belong

The only question now is how high will they rise? St. John’s bested #4 Pittsburgh 60-59 at Madison Square Garden on an acrobatic last second lay-up by Dwight Hardy.
