The Line: St. John's Red Storm -2.5 -- Over/Under: 153
The St. John's Red Storm and Georgetown Hoyas meet Wednesday in the college basketball Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden.
The St. John's Red Storm need a win after losing four of their last six games. The St. John's Red Storm are averaging 74.6 points on 41 percent shooting and allowing 71.9 points on 41.4 percent shooting. LJ Figueroa is averaging 14.3 points and 4.5 rebounds while Mustapha Heron is averaging 13.8 points and 1.6 assists. Rasheem Dunn is the third double-digit scorer and Julian Champagnie is grabbing 6.5 rebounds. The St. John's Red Storm are shooting 32.1 percent from beyond the arc and 70 percent from the free throw line. The St. John's Red Storm are allowing 31.9 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.8 rebounds per game. The St. John's Red Storm have lost four straight non-home games.
The Georgetown Hoyas need a win to snap a six-game losing streak. The Georgetown Hoyas are averaging 75.1 points on 43.7 percent shooting and allowing 73.8 points on 43.4 percent shooting. Omer Yurtseven is averaging 15.8 points and 10 rebounds while Mac McClung is averaging 15.7 points and 2.4 assists. James Akinjo is the third double-digit scorer and Jahvon Blair is grabbing three rebounds. The Georgetown Hoyas are shooting 35.2 percent from beyond the arc and 77.3 percent from the free throw line. The Georgetown Hoyas are allowing 36.5 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 34.6 rebounds per game. The Georgetown Hoyas have lost three straight non-home games.
Will update with trends once they're released.
It's impossible to get behind the Georgetown Hoyas in their current form with all of their injuries. Without two of their top players, Georgetown has lost six straight games, and they're losing their last five games by an average of 9.2 points while allowing 48.1 percent shooting from the field and 43.1 percent shooting from deep. I want nothing to do with Georgetown unless McClung and others play. The St. John's Red Storm are at home in a tournament game, and they're 12-6-1 against the spread at home this season. I'll lay the bucket.
