This is a classic matchup of teams from the old Big East as both kick off conference play with this one.
Providence is higher in the pecking order as we begin the season but St. John’s is gaining on the field.
The Friars did not do much to impress in the nonconference portion of the season. They will have to be solid in the league to make the dance.
Senior Rodney Bullock tuned up for Big East play by dropping 31 points on Sacred Heart. Any game where he is the best player on the floor likely goes the Friars way.
Bullock and PG Kyron Cartwright are exactly the kind of experienced duo that can frustrate the young Red Storm.
Alpha Diallo is the wild card for Providence. There is no doubting his athleticism but consistency is not there yet even though he is their second leading scorer.
St. John’s Red Storm
The Red Storm performed well in the nonconference. Losses to Mizzou and Arizona State are not resume breakers.
Shamorie Ponds is one of the most exciting players in the Big East. His efficiency could be better but he almost never leaves the floor and knows how to score.
More has been required of Ponds because Marcus Lovett has been out. It is not certain whether he will play in this one or not.
Justin Simon started his career at Arizona and leads the team in rebounding with 8 at just 6’5″. The team could use more production from its actual bigs.

Free Providence Friars vs. St. John’s Storm NCAAB Prediction:
There definitely should be a good buzz in the building for this Big East opener for both programs.
Look for the home Red Storm to be sight favourites but I see a small number for this one, -3 at the most.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: No line currently posted.
The Red Storm have lots of talent but sometimes lack focus. I think this a spot they are looking forward to and it will show in a strong performance.
