The St. John’s basketball team returns to Madison Square Garden for the first time this season. 

Basketball is set to be played at Madison Square Garden between the St. John’s basketball program and the Pittsburgh Panthers (3-7) on Saturday afternoon.

The game will be St. John’s (8-2, 1-0 Big East) regular season game at The Garden since March 7, 2020 in a victory over Marquette.

Saturday’s game is a part of the Gotham Classic which was scheduled to be a double header with Iona and Seton Hall playing the second game but the Covid issues with the Pirates forced the cancellation of that contest.

Pittsburgh has been struggling mightily this season with losses against The Citadel, UMBC, and Monmouth but the Panthers have been very competitive is defeats against Minnesota and Virginia.

St. John’s cannot afford to lose this game and the Johnnies no longer have the excuse of looking passed Pittsburgh and preparing for Seton Hall after its meeting on Monday with the Pirates has been canceled and deemed a forfeit in favor of the Johnnies.
