The St. John's Red Storm are off to an uneven 2-2 start and now will take on the Holy Cross Crusaders on Wednesday.
St. John's is trying to snap a two-game losing streak, which started against the Murray State Racers and continued last weekend against the Baylor Bears.
The Red Storm will be hoping for continued great play out of sophomore D'Angelo Harrison, who is averaging 22.5 points per game. Steve Lavin has such a young team and so far they've been inconsistent, something to be expected with such youth on the roster.
As for the Seton Hall Pirates, Wednesday they will see a Maine Black Bears team that is 0-3 on the campaign.
Seton Hall is off to a 3-1 start, looking good on the defensive end of the floor. On Sunday, the Pirates were able to topple the Rhode Island Rams 60-55, with Gene Teague scoring 21 points and snagging nine rebounds.
Also on Wednesday, the Hofstra Pride and Manhattan Jaspers will tangle in a New York showdown between two mid-majors. Hofstra is 3-2, while Manhattan has struggled to an 0-2 start out of the blocks.
