St. John’s Red Storm
St. John’s got throttled by Providence in its conference opener, which was at home. It dropped to 0–2 over the weekend in a much more respectable loss, by five points at Seton Hall.
The Red Storm was without its two top scorers in that one. Shamorie Ponds averages over 20 points per game, but injured his knee in that loss to Providence. Marcus LoVett is averaging nearly 15 points per, but is also dealing with a knee problem. He hasn’t played since the first week in December.
It’s unclear how much longer both guys will be out. Ponds is dealing with what seems to be a less serious issue, but LoVett has already missed a lot of time. The fact that neither have been ruled out make it seem like neither injury will linger much longer, but until St. John’s gets those guys back, they won’t be able to compete with the best in the Big East.
Creighton Blue Jays
Creighton represents a tier right at the top of the conference. It has already lost at Seton Hall and may not be as good as Villanova, but the Blue Jays will consider themselves favorites going up against just about everybody else in the conference.
Marcus Foster led the Jays with 18 points in their first conference home game and first conference win over Providence over the weekend by 19 points. All five Creighton starters were in double-figures in the win.
Martin Krampelj, a sophomore from Slovenia, has taken a huge leap forward in what is really his third year at Creighton. Krampelj suffered a season-ending injury in his freshman season after just about 50 minutes of game time so he is still just a sophomore by eligibility. He’s gone from 2.8 points per game last season to over 12 this in about four times the playing time. He scored 23 points in 20 minutes in Creighton’s opening loss to Seton Hall.
