This is a rare back-to-back, home-and-away series. The teams just met this past Saturday in New York City. Seton Hall won, 66-60, as a 1-point favorite.
Now the scene shifts to Seton Hall. The Pirates will have a big home-court edge with their small gym. However, is that edge worth six points on the line?
I don't believe so. St. John's certainly can play with the Pirates. The Red Storm shot just 29.3 percent from the floor on Saturday. They missed numerous layups and also didn't shoot well from the foul line.
This should be an intense, rapid revenge game for St. John's. The Pirates also may be without their starting point guard, Bryce Aiken. He missed the game two days ago because of being in concussion protocol and is questionable here.
