The St. John's Red Storm men's basketball team makes its annual trek to the West Coast Tuesday to take on the San Francisco Dons in a non-conference contest at the War Memorial Gymnasium (10 p.m. ET).

Head coach Steve Lavin - a native of San Francisco - and his squad will be looking for the first road victory of the season. The Johnnies (6-2) are winners of four straight, including a 57-49 victory over the NJIT Highlanders on Sunday.

Sophomore guard D'Angelo Harrison scored a game-high 21 points for St. John's. This was the seventh time this season Harrison tallied 20 or more points in one game. The 6'3, 202-pound guard is second in the Big East Conference in scoring (21.8 ppg).

The Dons (4-1) are currently on a four-game winning streak. The latest was a 78-68 victory over Montana on Friday. USF lost its first game of the season to the Stanford Cardinal, 74-62.

Three Don players are averaging in double-figures, led by De'End Parker's 19.4 ppg. Cole Dickerson (14.8 ppg) and guard Cody Doolin (11.0 ppg) are the other two players pacing USF.

After the game, St. John's will head back to the East Coast where it will face the Fordham Rams at Madison Square Garden on Saturday.
