These are two good teams that did not good work in the nonconference part of the schedule. This is the first conference game for Marquette.
St. John’s suffered its only loss of the season in its conference opener against Seton Hall. Other than that they have been perfect and will be a team to reckon with.
Marquette Golden Eagles
Marquette is not the best team but they are on of the scariest. When they are playing at their best they can compete with nearly anyone.
Their preference is to play an up tempo style bu they can play some defense too. They are only giving up 66ppg and that defense will keep them in most contests.
Markus Howard is one of the best scorers in college hoops. He is averaging 25ppg and can near single-handedly win ball games, most recently 45 points against an undefeated Buffalo team in a win.
After Howard the Hauser brothers are useful pieces. They have good length and can both shoot the three, both are at 42%. The point is it is not all Howard every night.
St. John’s Red Storm
The Red Storm had their moments last year and this season it looks like they are bound for the Tournament. Things might be really turning around for Chris Mullin.
Their lone loss was on the road against a solid Seton Hall team. This is the Big East and they are going to get beat but they have to rebound at home.
Shamorie Ponds is going to put some pressure on Howard above. He is scoring 18ppg and directing one of the best offenses in the country.
Mustapha Heron. formerly of Auburn might be the Red Storm’s best player though. He is an awesome athlete and has become more efficient this season.

Free Marquette Golden Eagles vs. St. John’s Red Storm NCAAB Prediction:
I think St. John’s has done more then enough to be the favourites in this one once the line is released. Probably by more than one possession.
This should be a really good game. Both teams are talented and at the same time not relying on freshman overly. The way it used to be.
4* Free CBB Betting Pick: St. John’s ATS.
Marquette will be a trendy underdog but I am not liking the way they played in their other true road game this season where they did not look good on the road at Indiana.
