2012 Big East Basketball Tournament: St. John's Vs. Pittsburgh Preview

The Big East was largely disappointing this season, and the Pittsburgh Panthers were one of the principal culprits.

One year after finishing 28-6 ranked as high as No. 2 and spending 19 weeks in the polls, the Panthers began the season No. 10 in the AP Top 25 and No. 11 in the ESPN/USA Today Coaches Poll. Nevertheless, Pittsburgh finished the season 13th in the Big East with a 5-13 conference record and 16-15 overall mark. Tuesday at 2 p.m. ET, the Panthers will face the No. 12 St. John's Red Storm (13-18, 6-12 Big East). The game will be aired on ESPN2 and ESPN3D.

The two teams met on Feb. 29 in Pittsburgh, a game the Pirates won 89-69.

Beginning with a 59-54 loss to Northeast Conference School Wagner Dec. 23, 2011, Pittsburgh -- ranked No. 13 at the time -- lost eight straight games. Prior to that loss to Wagner, Pittsburgh had lost just one game, Nov. 16, 2011, against Long Beach State. The losing streak was the Panthers' longest in more than a decade, though they were without junior point guard Tray Woodall for 11 games due to groin and abdominal injuries. Woodall finished second behind senior guard Ashton Gibbs in scoring with 11.5 points per game. Gibbs finished the season averaging 15.4.

St.John's, meanwhile, enters the conference tourney on a two-game losing streak. Following their loss to the Panthers, the Red Storm lost at Rutgers March 3, 61-58. St. John's did play a tough non-conference schedule, losing to Arizona, Texas A&M and Kentucky before Big East play started.

However, the Red Storm don't have many quality wins. They did beat the West Virginia Mountaineers and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, but two four-game losing steaks in conference play largely detracted from their record.

St. John's finished the season with three players averaging double-figures in scoring, led by freshman guard D'Angelo Harrison with 17.0 points per game. Freshman guard/forward Moe Harkless averaged 15.0, while sophomore guard Nurideen Lindsey contributed 12.4 per game -- though he appeared in only nine games for the Red Storm. Lindsey abruptly announced he was transferring from St. John's in early December. In mid-January, he announced he had chosen Arkansas, but five days later he reneged on the Razorbacks and elected to transfer to Rider.

St. John's Vs. Pittsburgh Final Score: Win Streak Ends For Red Storm with 89-69 Loss To Pitt

It seemed like the Pittsburgh Panthers might never miss a shot in their lopsided 89-69 over the St. John's Red Storm on Wednesday night at Petersen Events Center. The Panthers (16-14, 5-12 Big East) made more than 63 percent of their field goal attempts and doubled up the Red Storm (13-17, 6-11 Big East) in rebounds on the way to their first win in their last six games.

Despite the lopsided final, St. John's stayed close in the first half. Three D'Angelo Harrison turnovers with less than two minutes to play in the first half allowed Pitt to expand a one-point lead to a 38-33 edge at the half. Things spiraled out of control from there.

A J.J. Moore three-pointer with 11 minutes left to play in the game gave Pitt a 21-point edge.

Ashton Gibbs led the Panthers with 19 points, one of four players in double figures. Harrison led St. John's 21 points. Phil Greene had 18 points for the Red Storm.

St. John's closes out the regular season on Saturday against Rutgers.

St. John's Vs. Notre Dame Final Score: Red Storm Complete Upset, 61-58

The St. John's Red Storm won their third consecutive game and did so in impressive fashion, upsetting the No. 18 Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 61-58, snapping their nine-game winning streak in the process.

The Red Storm kept the Fighting Irish at arm's length for most of the second half, leading by near-double digits throughout. The Fighting Irish began cutting into the lead with about six minutes remaining in the game, but were never able to tie the game.

Moe Harkless led the game in scoring with 22 points on 16 shots. He also added nine rebounds, three steals and two blocks.

St. John's will finish the regular season on the road, as it travels to Pittsburgh Feb. 29 and finishes at Rutgers March 3.

St. John's Vs. DePaul Final Score: Red Storm Beat Visiting Blue Demons, 79-72

Freshman forward Amir Garrett netted a collegiate-best 18 points Monday to help the St. John's Red Storm defeat the DePaul Blue Demons, 79-72, in a Big East Conference men's basketball game at Carnesecca Arena in Jamaica, NY. The Red Storm (12-16, 5-10 Big East) earned a two-game, series sweep of the Blue Demons (11-16, 2-13), who had their current seven-game losing streak extended.

Freshman guard D'Angelo Harrison netted a team-best 23 points, while backcourt-mate Moe Harkless added 14 and 10 rebounds for St. John's, which earned its second straight victory.

The Johnnies now are in sole possession of 11th place in the 16-team conference, which will hold its league tournament at St. John's home court, Madison Square Garden, in two weeks.

DePaul's Cleveland Melvin tallied 18 points and snagged a collegiate-best 15 points for DePaul, which led by as much as four point but never in the second half.

St. John's Vs. DePaul: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

St. John's is finally coming into a game feeling good about itself.

The Red Storm (11-16, 4-10) knocked off UCLA 66-63 over the weekend in Madison Square Garden and now are looking to start a winning streak against DePaul.

The Blue Demons (11-15, 2-12) are an absolute disaster right now. DePaul has lost six straight and 11 of 12. The only win in that stretch came at Rutgers back on Jan. 25th.

The Johnnies are trying to finish a rough season with a strong finishing kick. D'Angelo Harrison and Moe Harkless have been two of the bright spots St. John's fans can be happy about.

Harrison is leading the team with 16.7 points per game while Harkless is second in that category with 15.4 PPG. Harkless also has a team-leading 8.6 rebounds per contest.

For the Blue Demons, they'll be looking to avenge an 87-81 home defeat to the Red Storm back on Feb. 1st. Much of that task will be put on the shoulders of sophomore Cleveland Melvin, who leads DePaul in scoring with 17.7 PPG.

Game Time: 9 p.m. ET

TV: ESPNU

Georgetown Vs. St. John's Final Score: Hoyas Hold Off Red Storm, 71-61

The Georgetown Hoyas completed a season sweep of the St. John's Red Storm, defeating the Johnnies 71-61 Sunday afternoon in a Big East Conference men's basketball game at the Verizon Center. The Hoyas (19-5, 9-4 Big East) had five players score in double figures and were led by freshman Greg Whittington (14 points), in handing St. John's (10-15, 4-9) its third straight loss. The Red Storm remain winless against ranked opponents this season (0-10).

St. John's freshman guard D'Angelo Harrison paced all scorers with 24 points, while freshman Moe Harkless added 20.

The Red Storm trailed 56-53 with just 4:21 remaining in the game, but Georgetown senior guard Jason Clark netted six straight points to push the Hoyas' lead to nine, 62-53. Clark finished with 11 points, while Otto Porter made 4-of-6 free throws in the final 1:30 to cement the victory.

St. John's visits the Seton Hall Pirates Tuesday night (7 p.m.)

Cincinnati 76, St. John's 54: Bearcats Rout Red Storm

St. John's and Cincinnati had grown accustomed to tight games. They likely expected another Wednesday night.

After four consecutive games between the pair of teams ended with two-point margins, the Bearcats trounced the Red Storm 76-54 at Madison Square Garden. Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati's leading scorer with 15.4 points per game, scored 10 of his 14 points in the first five minutes of the second half, widening the Bearcats' 30-19 halftime lead.

D'Angelo Harrison scored 15 points to lead St. John's, who shot just 32.8 percent from the field and have now lost three of four. No other player scored in double-digits for the Red Storm, as Phil Greene was their second-leading scorer with eight points. Freshman sensation Moe Harkless finished with just six points on 2-of-8 shooting.

Prior to the game, the Red Storm announced junior guard Malik Stith was leaving the team for personal reasons. Stith will stay with the program and still earn his degree, though his absence leaves St. John's with a six-man rotation consisting of players all in their first years with the program.

After enduring a 95-70 rout at the hands of the No. 2 Syracuse Orange Saturday, St. John's schedule doesn't appear to get any easier. Sunday afternoon, the Red Storm travel to Georgetown to face the No. 11 Hoyas.

St. John's-DePaul Final Score: Red Storm Fights To 87-81 Win

The St. John's Red Storm rebounded nicely Wednesday night from a weekend loss to Duke. They beat the DePaul Blue Demons in Big East Conference basketball action, splitting the logo-based underworld deities series, by a final score of 87-81.

It wasn't easy. St. John's trailed most of the night, getting a late run to save their hardwood souls.

D'Angelo Harrison led the way with 29 points, nearly double his season average of 15.8 points per game. Harrison made seven of his eleven three-point attempts. He added five rebounds and three assists.

Three other players from St. John's scored in double figures, including God'sgift Achiwa's 15-point effort.

The win moved the Red Storm to 4-6 in the Big East and 10-12 overall. Struggling against DePaul would not seem to bode well for a Saturday home game against Syracuse.

St. John's Vs. DePaul: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The season hasn't gone according to plan for the St. John's Red Storm or the DePaul Blue Demons, who square off Wednesday night in Big East Conference basketball action.

The Johnnies (9-12, 3-6) have lost seven of their last nine, the most recent being a great effort against Duke where they fell just short. It was expected to be a year of learning for St. John's youthful squad and that's exactly what it's been.

For DePaul (11-9, 2-6), the campaign started with promise after back-to-back wins against Texas Tech and Arizona State in November, but the bottom has fell out as of late. The Blue Demons did beat Rutgers in their last game, but lost the five previous games.

This contest should be a good battle for two teams eager for a Big East victory. Moe Harkless and D'Angelo Harrison have led St. John's and they'll have to do it again on the road.

Harkless has been a star early on, averaging over 16 points and eight rebounds per game. Harrison has given some nice punch from the guard spot, averaging 15.8 points per contest.

DePaul struggles to play solid defense for a full 40 minutes. If the Red Storm can get nice ball movement and knock down open shots, they could steal a road win. The Blue Demons will rely on Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young.

The game can be seen on SNY at 8:30 p.m. ET.

However; they were unable to complete the comeback, losing by a final of 83-76.

St. John's was led by great performances from their freshman duo of Moe Harkless and D'Angelo Harrison. Harkless finished with 30 points on 21 shots and 13 rebounds. Harrison finished with 21 points on 17 shots.

The Red Storm's next play on February 1, when they travel to DePaul for a Big East match-up.

The Red Storm have lost their first seven contests against top 25 teams this season, and Duke enters the game ranked No. 6. The Blue Devils beat Maryland on the road Wednesday, 74-61, and have won five of their past six.

St. John's Vs. West Virginia Final Score: Red Storm Snaps Skid With 78-62 Win

The St. John's Red Storm won for just the second time this month on Wednesday night. They beat the visiting West Virginia Mountaineers by a final score of 78-62 in Big East Conference play.

Freshman Moe Harkliss led the way with 23 points and 13 rebounds. He leads the Red Storm in both categories this season. D'Angelo Harrison had 19 points, three assists, four rebounds and one steal. They were two of four players in double figures for the night.

St. John's made more than 48 percent of their shots from the field and hit 75 percent at the line, compared to 35 percent and 58 percent, respectively, for West Virginia.

St. John's Vs. West Virginia: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

The season has been a struggle for the young St. John's Red Storm men's basketball team (8-11, 2-6). Steve Lavin's bunch has had to learn on the fly in the brutal Big East Conference and Wednesday night won't be any different. West Virginia (15-5, 5-2) comes to New York sitting in fine position to make the NCAA Tournament again under Bob Huggins. The Mountaineers have won three in a row including an overtime thriller against Cincinnati a few nights ago.

Conversely, St. John's is really scuffling right now, losers of four in a row and six of its last seven. The team has been non-competitive against the good Big East teams except for the last second win against the Bearcats a few weeks ago. After tonight, the Red Storm will get a short break from the conference schedule. The bad news? They're traveling to Cameron Indoor Stadium to take on No. 6 Duke.

If St. John's has any chance to pull off the upset it needs to play legitimate defense. The Mountaineers score more than 75 points per game and are led by senior forward Kevin Jones who's one of the best players in the nation. He averages over 20 points and 11 rebounds per contest.

The burden mostly falls on the broad shoulders of Moe Harkless and D'Angelo Harrison to keep the Johnnies in the game. Harkless will need to be a presence inside and put that big body of his to good use.

The game can be seen on ESPNU and is slated for a 7 p.m. tip-off.

St. John's Vs. Villanova Final Score: Red Storm Lose in Overtime

The St. John's Red Storm fell in overtime to the Villanova Wildcats today by a final score of 79-76 in a Big East Conference men's basketball game. A Maalik Wayns jumper late in the fourth quarter forced overtime, where the Wildcats were able to outlast the Red Storm. The loss drops the Red Storm to 8-11 on the season and 2-6 in the Big East.

St. John's guard, D'Angelo Harrison, scored a team high 28 points on an efficient 14 shots. Moe Harkless and Phil Greene also scored in double figure for the Red Storm.

The Red Storm were able to outshoot the Wildcats from the field at 48 percent, compared to 39 for the Wildcats, but were out-rebounded 46 to 29, including 21 offensive rebounds.

St. John's next game is scheduled for Jan. 25 against the West Virginia Mountaineers.

Villanova Vs. St. John's: Red Storm Host Wildcats At MSG

Sports Network -- A couple of teams struggling to find themselves in Big East Conference play meet up at the World's Most Famous Arena Saturday (1 p.m. on ESPNU), as the St. John's Red Storm clashes with the Villanova Wildcats in the Big Apple.

The Red Storm, which has had to deal not only with the opponents on their schedule, but also the fact that head coach Steve Lavin has been enduring treatment following cancer surgery, has lost three straight and five of the last six outings and is just 2-5 in league play thus far. On Wednesday night, the team dropped in on USF and was sent packing following a 64-49 final. It was the second straight game in which St. John's tallied just 49 points which means each of the setbacks during this current slump have come by double figures.

As for the Wildcats, they were a team that kicked off the 2011-12 campaign with four straight wins, but since then the squad has generated just five more victories over the course of 15 outings. On Wednesday night, Villanova registered one of those rare triumphs with an 84-76 decision against Seton Hall to snap a two-game slide. Like the Red Storm, the 'Cats are a mere 2-5 in league play heading into the weekend.

With respect to the all-time series between these two schools on the hardwood, the Red Storm leads by a count of 59-44, the team winning the most recent matchup last season (81-68) in order to snap a six-game slide versus Villanova.

St. John's Vs. South Florida: Red Storm Loses Third Straight, 64-49

The St. John's Red Storm lost their third game in a row on Wednesday night. The South Florida Bulls used a strong second half on their home court for a 64-49 over the Red Storm in Big East Conference basketball action.

St. John's shot a woeful 39.1 percent from the floor and made just two of 12 three-point attempts in the loss. Moe Harkliss led the team in scoring with 12 points, well off his team-leading average of 15.8 points per game. He also had 8 rebounds, one steal and two blocked shots. God'sgift Achiuwa and Phil Greene were the only other players to score in double figures.

Bulls' forward Victor Rudd had 24 points, including five of seven three-point shots, in the win. He also led his team with nine rebounds.

The loss drops the Red Storm to 2-5 in Big East play and 8-10 overall. They host Villanova on Saturday afternoon.

St. John's Vs. South Florida Preview: Game Time, TV Schedule And More

St. John's will be taking on the South Florida Bulls in a Big East Conference basketball game at 7 p.m. Wednesday in the Tampa Bay Times Forum.

It's been a tough year for the Red Storm this season. The Johnnies (8-9, 2-4) have struggled to score, only averaging 66 points per game. It's not a surprise that the team has seen it's share of bumps in the road. With such a young team there just isn't a lot of consistency right now.

South Florida (10-8, 3-2) has looked solid this campaign with a winning record thus far in conference play. The Bulls are led by senior forward Augustus Gilchrist and junior guard Jawanza Poland who average 11 and 10 points respectively.

South Florida is actually even more offensively challenged than the Red Storm (61 points per game) but plays with much more experience. The one area St. John's could dominate is on the glass. While the Red Storm aren't as big inside, the Bulls are not very good at cleaning the glass. St. John's can also look to run off of turnovers, which South Florida can be prone to in bunches.

Moe Harkless is the unquestioned star of the team and could have his way inside. If St. John's is going to win on the road against a tough Big East foe, Harkless will have to lead the young squad.

The game can be seen on SNY and ESPN3.
