In the Georgetown game on Sunday, the Storm trailed 39-35 going into the second half. Saint John’s posted a 40-34 run from there and won it 75-73, however. David Jones scored 17 points with seven rebounds to top the team. 

ANDREW’S FREE PICK 

I’ll probably stay with Seton Hall. This one could get interesting, though. The last time these teams met back on December 31 at Prudential Center. Seton Hall secured an 88-66 victory thanks to 46 second-half points. The Pirates caught more steam as the game went on and ended up cruising. Seton Hall is on a strong 5-1 run right now with 66 or more points in all five of their wins. A good start will go a long way in this one, and I think the Pirates can power out the cover/win.
