The St. John’s basketball team will get another chance at Villanova in the Big East Tournament.
The Big East Conference has been ruled by the Villanova Wildcats for so long but the St. John’s basketball team has a chance to knock them off.
Jay Wright and Villanova have been the crown jewel of the conference since its realignment and after an injury riddled postseason last year, the Wildcats will be looking to climb the top of the ladder once again.
However, the Red Storm are hungry and confident after its dominant win over DePaul on Wednesday night and boast one of the best player in the conference, Julian Champagnie.
Villanova swept the two matchups between the teams this season and has won the last three overall meetings against St. John’s.
Defeating the ‘Cats will be a tall task but one that eventually had to be done if the Red Storm want to make the NCAA Tournament.
