It’s nothing personal against the Red Storm. Under normal circumstances, I would actually give them a 40% chance against Marquette in the Garden for the Big East Tournament game, especially if Jerel McNeal is expected to be out. Except that the Johnnies best player Senior Lamont Hamilton will be out for the rest of the year (1 more game) with a partial tear in the patella tendon of his left knee. St. John’s lost Daryll Hill earlier in the season to injury. I mean, even with both of them, they wouldn’t have been much better than their record. But, now they have no chance.





I sure hope your instincts are correct……I’m guessing McNeal is out for MU — so each team is down a man. But MU does have to go on the road for this one.

I expect a very close game at MSG on Weds.

The Red Storm is offensively challenged under normal circumstances. They don’t shoot very well and are slow. They would have to have Patterson shooting out of his mind from behind the arc; and Marquette would have to be shooting sub-30% for the game and no better then 60% on FTs.

Hamilton was the leading scorer and rebounder for St. John’s. Mason, Jr. would have to have a career game.
