+Read full article

Are you getting prepped for some St. John’s Red Storm hoops? Amazing, so are we here at Rant Sports. While all of us are  biding our time until opening day tip off on November 13th, we are going to let you in on a little secret.  The Red Storm’s non-conference opponents. While it’s not really a secre,t we figured it be best to publicly display all things St. John’s relevant.

The Johnnies will indeed open up on November 13th in a nationally televised game on ESPN where they will face off with the Detroit Titants of the mighty Horizon League.

Also the Red Storm will participate in the DirecTV Charleston Classic. All games will take place in(Take a guess) Charleston. The other participants that will be involved are the Auburn Tigers, Baylor Bears, Boston College Eagles, Charleston Cougars , Colorado Buffaloes, Dayton Flyers, and Murray State Racers. The games will be held on Thursday, Nov. 15, Friday, Nov. 16, and Sunday, Nov. 18.

3 more games will be played in November all at Carnesecca Arena. St. John’s will host Holy Cross (Nov. 21), Florida Gulf Coast (Nov. 24) and South Carolina (Nov. 29).

After that comes a big challenge, when the Red Storm take on the traditional powerhouses that are the New Jersey Institute of Technology(NJIT), San Francisco Dons, and Fordham University. St. John’s will wrap up that 3 game gut check by finishing up Fordham at Madison Square Garden.

A week later, the Johnnies will square off with St. Francis(NY) with their first performance at the new Barclays Center in Brooklyn. St. John’s closes their non-conference schedule with UNC-Asheville on December 21st.
