St. John’s basketball received new dates for its postponed games this season.

The Big East Conference made more adjustments to the St. John’s basketball schedule as the Red Storm have new dates for its previously postponed games.

Due to COVID-19 issues within its opponents program, the Johnnies had games on the road against Connecticut and Butler postponed while its matchup with Villanova was also pushed back to give more time for players to celebrate the holidays at home.

Days after the conference announced the second portion of its league schedule, it now has released new dates for the Red Storm and its three games that have been altered.
