PICK: I’m staying with St. John’s. The Red Storm had another nice game on Monday versus Temple. St. John’s shot 46.4 percent from the field with 37 rebounds and 16 assists. There were a few sketchy spots in the stats (23.1 percent 3-point shooting, 14 turnovers, etc.) but overall it was a solid effort. As for Syracuse, they had a nice shooting effort themselves on Monday however they were pretty sluggish on the glass with a 44-27 deficit. I don’t think the Orange will cover here.
