Why Seton Hall Will Win
What went wrong for Seton Hall in the 81-71 loss to St. John’s just a few days ago?
The shooting wasn’t bad, but the defense fell off the map with the Red Storm hitting just about everything. This isn’t a bad St. John’s offensive team, but the defense struggles, it doesn’t do enough on the boards, and there are way, way too many fouls.
Seton Hall is at its best when it gets to the free throw line and forces the action. It took 28 free throws in the first meeting – a 77-68 win – and 21 times in the previous game.
Why St. John’s Will Win
Seton Hall has hit a wall.
It’s not scoring enough, the defense has been a disaster, and the free throw shooting isn’t good even with all the attempts.
St. John’s is painfully flaky, but it’s been on from the field lately, it’s fine from three, and it should be able to make up for its defensive issues and lapses by facing a team with far more defensive issues and bigger lapses.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s a battle to play another day between two teams that could never seem to sustain any positive consistency. Seton Hall is struggling too much, St. John’s will be better from three, and it’ll be a second Red Storm win over the Pirates in five days.
