The St. John’s Red Storm and Indiana Hoosiers play Tuesday afternoon at the Lahaina Civic Center.
The St. John’s Red Storm are coming off a blowout Monday loss to Vanderbilt, 92-55. In the loss, St. John’s shot just 30 percent from the field and allowed 53.2 percent shooting. Federico Mussini led the Red Storm with 14 points and two assists while Durand Johnson had 10 points and three steals. The St. John’s Red Storm continue to struggle on the offensive end, as they’ve combined for 116 points in their last two games and came into this tournament shooting 42.2 percent from the field. St. John’s is clearly in a rebuilding season and will need to give new coach Chris Mullin some time. The good news for the St. John’s Red Storm is that they’re a solid rebounding team, grabbing 155 boards in their first four games. A win here would go a long way for St. John’s confidence.

The Indiana Hoosiers are off a brutal Monday loss to Wake Forest, 82-78. In the loss, Indiana allowed 50.7 percent shooting and turned the ball over 14 times. Yogi Ferrell led the Hoosiers with 11 points and five assists while Robert Johnson had 14 points and three assists off the bench. The Indiana Hoosiers not only didn’t play a lick of defense, but they played with a lackluster attitude like beating Wake Forest was going to be an easy task. We all know the Hoosiers are very talented and have scoring on top of scoring, but the Hoosiers have to play with a certain intensity if they’re going to make a Big Ten championship run. Indiana came into this tournament shooting 42.7 percent from beyond the arc.
The Red Storm are 4-10 ATS in their last 14 games following a S.U. loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Hoosiers are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games following a ATS loss and 12-25-2 ATS in their last 39 neutral site games.
With no line yet, I'm taking Indiana to win by double digits. St. John's doesn't have the horses offensively to hang with the Hoosiers. Like the game against Vandy, this could get real ugly for the Red Storm.
