Georgetown @ St. John's
Current Records: Georgetown 6-15; St. John's 13-8
What to Know
The Georgetown Hoyas haven't won a game against the St. John's Red Storm since Dec. 13 of 2020, but they'll be looking to end the drought Sunday. Georgetown and St. John's will face off in a Big East battle at 2 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden. The Hoyas should still be riding high after a win, while the Red Storm will be looking to regain their footing.
Even if it wasn't a dominant performance, Georgetown beat the DePaul Blue Demons 81-76 last Tuesday. Guard Primo Spears (21 points) was the top scorer for Georgetown.
Meanwhile, St. John's has to be aching after a bruising 104-76 loss to the Creighton Bluejays this past Wednesday. St. John's' defeat shouldn't obscure the performances of center Joel Soriano, who had 18 points in addition to nine boards, and guard AJ Storr, who had 23 points. Storr's performance made up for a slower matchup against the Villanova Wildcats two weeks ago. Storr's points were the most he has had all year.
The Hoyas are the clear underdogs, so they're hoping it's the size of the fight that determines this one. They are currently three-for-three against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.
Georgetown's victory brought them up to 6-15 while the Red Storm's defeat pulled them down to 13-8. Two stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: Georgetown has allowed their opponents an average of 8.5 steals per game, the 354th most in college basketball. To make matters even worse for the Hoyas, St. John's ranks 26th in college basketball when it comes to steals per game, with 8.9 on average. In other words, Georgetown will need to work extra hard to take care of the ball.
