I am curious to see how they play with Lovett in the lineup assuming he's eligible.

yeah, that'll be interesting to see if Lovett gets eligible. But even if he does- I don't know how much better that makes everyone. If St John's could finish as good as Marquette was last year- that'd be an incredible season IMO.

I'll be encouraged if they finish as well as Marquette, especially if they bring in a similar freshman class to the one Marquette brought in this year.

also, I wouldn't just say relying on the freshmen. a guy like Durand Johnson- I didn't watch the game- but looking at the box score- it definitely appeared as if he was shaking off a ton of rust- which is to be expected considering he hadn't played a game since 1/11/14. That's rough. Ron Mvouika played all of 34 minutes last year before injuries.

well St John's has gotten off to a pretty solid start so far IMO. Will they be able to get an equiv of Ellensen to bring it all together is the big question.

Hey, hoops, don't feel so bad. Iowa got beat tonight by D2 Augustana. 76-74. Of course, Augustana supposedly is the #1 D2 team in the country.

For a comparable thing for St Johns- St Thomas Aquinas played Rhode Island tonight and lost 100-77. They forced only 15 turnovers tonight after the 28 I think it was 2 nights ago vs St John's.

I find it absolutely ridiculous that the NCAA still hasn't ruled on Lovett with the season a week away. Totally unfair to Lovett, as well as to St. Johns. It would be a real shot in the arm to have him starting at point guard.

He's not the only one- there's several around like him. Diallo, Yakwe, think heard guy from UCF actually(big guy- like 7'6 or something like that).
