This Sunday, there is an NCAAB matchup between the St. John's Red Storm and the Seton Hall Pirates. This game will take place at the Prudential Center at approximately 2:00 P.M EST.
St. John's Looks To Get Back On Track
The St. John's Red Storm have looked like a slightly above average college basketball team so far this season. The Red Storm have won 14 of their first 26 games but they enter this game on a low note after losing to Xavier at home by three points in their last game. In that game, St. John's defense was awful as it gave up 77 points while allowing the opposition to shoot 48.4% from the floor. To make matters worse, St. John's has lost four of its last five games so it has been playing some terrible basketball lately. Now, St. John's will be looking to get back on track with a conference road game up next. However, the Red Storm have lost five of their first six road games up to this point so a victory here is rather unlikely.
Leading the Red Storm offensively is junior guardLJ Figueroa who has been pretty good this season as he is averaging a team-high 14.6 points per game along with 4.5 rebounds. In addition, he is averaging a team-high 2.2 steals per game so he has been very active on both sides of the ball up to this point.
St. John's most underrated player is junior guard Rasheem Dunn who has been good this season as he is averaging 12.7 points per game along with 3.7 rebounds. However, he is also shooting 37.8% from the floor so he has been very inefficient offensively.
Seton Hall Looks For Another Home Win
The Seton Hall Pirates have been looked like a really good college basketball team so far this season. The Pirates have won 19 of their first 26 games and they enter this game on a high note after beating Butler at home by two points in their last game. In that game, Seton Hall's offense was pretty good as it scored 74 points while shooting 37.5% from the three-point line. However, that victory was not that surprising considering the fact that that Seton Hall has a 10-3 record at home this season. Now, the Pirates will have the opportunity to get themselves another home victory on Sunday.
Leading the Pirates offensively is senior guard Myles Powell who has been very good this season as he is averaging a team-high 21.4 points per game along with 4.5 rebounds. However, he is also averaging a team-high 2.8 turnovers per game so he will need to make better decisions with the basketball moving forward.
Seton Hall's most underrated player is junior forward Sandro Mamukelashvili who has been decent so far this season as he is averaging 10.6 points per game along with 4.9 rebounds. In addition, he is shooting 51.5% from the floor so he has been efficient offensively up to this point.
