BIG EAST GAME PREVIEW: St John's @ Seton Hall

January 4, 2006

For both Seton Hall and St. John's, this is a big game tonight. Both teams have favorable Big East schedules, but winning anything on the road will be tough, so St John's does have an opportunity tonight. for Seton Hall, losing a game like this at home in the Big East could be a disaster.

Seton Hall is coming off a solid win over Iona in their last game and St John's is still basking a little bit in the Holiday Hoops Festival championship, without Daryll Hill. At this point, it still looks like Hill will be out of action tonight when the two teams get together at Continental Airlines Arena, but Norm Roberts could be playing a little cat and mouse game with Louis Orr.

Both teams rely on effort and defense to keep them in games. Without Hill, it will probably be a tall order for the Redstorm to win away from home. Neither team shoots it very well, as both are at 41% or less for the season. St John's shoots just 25% from beyond the arc and 63% from the line, where SHU shoots 75% from the line and 33% from 3-pt range. Both teams are a near mirror-image in other stats defensive and on the boards. So, who will have more offense tonight? Well, without Daryll Hill, I have to believe it will be Seton Hall.
