St. John’s Red Storm Tip-Off This Friday, October 14

College basketball season won’t start until next month but St. John’s students and fans will get to see their squad play earlier.

With college basketball season nearly approaching, the St. John’s Red Storm will host their annual Red Storm Tip-Off on Friday, October 14 at 7 p.m. ET at Carnesecca Arena on the Queens Campus.

Both the St. John’s men’s and women’s basketball squad will be introduced to the fans in attendance and the two teams will compete in a number of on-court exhibitions on the court.

In addition, there will be a performance from hip-hop artist Desiigner to start the night.

Fans will also get to win a number of prizes and receive giveaways from St. John’s and their corporate partners.

Tickets for this event are free and it’s a first come, first served basis.

Even though it’s just an exhibition event, the Red Storm Tip-Off is always a great way to start the season and get fans pumped up for their Red Storm.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
