St. John’s Red Storm Playing Way Into Bubble Conversation
If talent meant everything the St. John’s Red Storm would be ranked in the top 25 and would be in the race for a Big East title. Well, talent certainly does not mean everything because neither of the above are true. Still, the Red Storm have been playing great basketball as of late and they are making their way into the bubble conversation.
St. John’s beat the Creighton Bluejays in its last game. That win was huge and very much needed. The victory marked its first win over a ranked team this season and also showed that it could still be an NCAA Tournament team.
This team has to keep it going, though, especially since they will play Seton Hall, Georgetown and Butler next. All three of those teams have losing records in the Big East. So does Steve Lavin‘s team.
His team has an overall record of 15-9 and a conference record of 5-6.
Regardless, the Red Storm have quietly won six games in their last seven contests. They started off conference play with five straight losses. That horrible start probably had many fans thinking this team was doomed, but there is still a slight chance that Lavin’s squad makes it into the 2014 NCAA Tournament.
At the very least, they have played their way into the bubble conversation.
