The Monmouth Hawks and the St. John’s Red Storm meet in college basketball action from Carnesecca Arena on Thursday night.

The Monmouth Hawks come into this game on the heels of a 79-65 win over Canisius last time out. George Papas leads the Hawks in scoring and assists with 17.2 PPG and 2.6 APG while Shavar Reynolds has 15.8 PPG with 3.4 RPG. Walker Miller’s got 14.6 PPG and a team-high 7.1 RPG to lead the Hawks on the glass while Marcus McClary has 11.5 PPG with 4.6 RPG to cap off the group of double-digit scorers for Monmouth so far this season. As a team, Monmouth is averaging 73.8 PPG on 46.1% shooting from the field, 39.1% from three and 81.5% from the foul line while allowing 65.8 PPG on 37.3% shooting from the field and 27.9% from three this season.

The St. John’s Red Storm will try to add to an 83-69 win over Fordham in their last game. Julian Champagnie leads the Red Storm in scoring and rebounding with 21 PPG and 7.1 RPG while Posh Alexander has 16 PPG with 3.5 RPG and a team-high 5.9 APG. Montez Mathis has 11.1 PPG with 4 RPG to cap off the trio of St. John’s players scoring in double figures so far this season. As a team, St. John’s is averaging 85.3 PPG on 50.5% shooting from the field, 35% from three and 71.5% from the foul line while allowing 72.9 PPG on 41.4% shooting from the field and 34.9% from three this season.

Monmouth is 8-0 ATS in their last 8 games overall and 6-0 ATS in their last 6 road games while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games following a win. St. John’s is 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 0-5 ATS in thir last 5 home games while the over is 13-3 in their last 16 games as a home favorite.

I get the Red Storm being favored at home here, but the Hawks won’t be intimidated going on the road as they already have a win against Cincinnati under their belts in a true road game this season. St. John’s has been good this season, but I expect the Hawks to give the Johnnies a run here. Give me the Hawks and the points.
