The Lafayette Leopards and St. John’s Red Storm meet Saturday in college basketball action at the Carnesecca Arena. The Lafayette Leopards look for their first win. The St. John’s Red Storm look for a 2-0 start.

The Lafayette Leopards are averaging 54 points on 36.5 percent shooting and allowing 67 points on 36.2 percent shooting. CJ Fulton is averaging 17 points and 4 rebounds, while Kyle Jenkins is averaging 10 points and 7 rebounds. Justin Vander Baan is dishing 1 assist and Leo O’Boyle is grabbing 4 rebounds. The Lafayette Leopards are shooting 29.4 percent from beyond the arc and 37.5 percent from the free throw line. The Lafayette Leopards are allowing 29.4 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32 rebounds per game.

The St. John’s Red Storm are averaging 97 points on 56.9 percent shooting and allowing 72 points on 38.5 percent shooting. David Jones is averaging 21 points and 10 rebounds, while Montez Mathis is averaging 16 points and 2 assists. Posh Alexander is the third double-digit scorer and Andre Curbelo is dishing 7 assists.

The St. John’s Red Storm are allowing 20.7 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 46 rebounds per game.

The Lafayette Leopards gave a talented, excellent Miami Hurricanes team all it could handle and even had the game tied with less than 11 minutes to play. That’s a confidence boosting loss for the Lafayette Leopards heading into this spot. The St. John’s Red Storm are obviously the better team, and the way they played in their opener was encouraging. However, I have a feeling we’re going to get a monster number. Based on Lafayette’s opening performance, I’ll grab the points with the Leopards.
