Game #33: Marquette 74 vs St. John’s 45 – 2009 Big East Tournament Round 2

March 11, 2009

With the nominally employed Chris Mullin in the stands, St. John’s lays one supreme egg, losing 74-45 to Marquette. The Johnnies scored 10 points in the first half on three field goals, couldn’t throw the ball into the Hudson, and basically looked defeated with a minute left in the first half.

Hope springs eternal, and way for the Red Storm players to stomp on it. In some cases (see: Sean Evans) the effort wasn’t really there. And the talent is hit and miss, and Paris and DJ couldn’t get going. The shots didn’t fall, and the Johnnies got outhustled by a fresher Marquette team for reabounds…

But that was embarrassing.

Why is Chris Mullin in the stands when he is technically employed by Golden State (though is now a General Manager with no decision-making power)? Is Louie trying to bring one of his own back into the fold? I wouldn’t necessarily think so, but… it strikes me as curious.

St. John’s (likely) ends the season with a 16-17 record, unless the lame CBI tournament comes calling and the Red Storm want to go.

    Gotta say I totally agreed with the announcers. St Johns never stopped playing hard. I think you guys got a good coach, you just gotta get some recruits to stay in New York.

      I guess recruits will help some, but they were unprepared… check out the more recent post on the game. Playing hard don’t mean anything if you’re not prepared.
