Chris Mullin‘s St. John’s Red Storm will travel to New Jersey to take on Seton Hall in a Big East clash for the first time this season.

  • St. John’s Red Storm (9-11, 3-4)
  • Seton Hall Pirates (12-6, 2-4)
  • Big East Conference, Jan. 22, 12 p.m. ET
  • Prudential Center, Newark, New Jersey

A real test is forthcoming for Chris Mullin’s squad in the form of the Seton Hall Pirates — the very same Pirates who are 12-6. 

While the Johnnies place in the standings is one slot ahead of the Pirates in the Big East standings (3-4 to 2-4), Seton Hall poses a legitimate opponent this Sunday at the Prudential Center.

St. John’s comes into the game into the game after snapping a four-game losing streak by defeating cellar-dwelling DePaul earlier in the week.

Shamorie Ponds enters the contest as phenomenal as he’s been all season long. His team-leading 17.1 points per game blends nicely with his five rebounds, 3.3 assists and 1.8 steals a game.

For Hall, Khadeen Carrington leads the way with a cool 17.8 points per contest.

Tip-off comes your way at noon on Sunday from the Prudential Center.
