Let's hope that's the case because that will mean that no one was infected. But if this decision was made in the name of safety or caution, please explain to me how it achieved either of those things?

I don't see how anyone could make an argument otherwise.

Contrary to any naysayers on this site, I am certain STJ is the best 17.5 - 15 program in the country.

Absolutely nothing changed between last night and now other than other conferences cancelling. Completely unorganized and unfair to to the kids, teams, coaches, and those working at the Garden.

Also, cancelling a game at the half mitigates absolutely nothing and makes them look like even more of jokes. All this does is potentially save Creighton's seeding (if the NCAA goes on) because Johnnies were about to mop them up.


You are so right on all fronts. What a disgrace this Conference became overnight. Just further exposed a lot of people unnecessarily. A complete effing disgrace.

Why not finish playing the game?

It's insane to end it like that. Tv crews are there, the coaches, and athletes. What's 45 more minutes to play the 2nd half?

This country is losing it's freaking mind.

I just got back from shopping and was looking forward to seeing how St John's was doing.

The previous three years we won the Wednesday night game and came out and layed an egg on the Thursday day game (see below). It was said the turnaround was too short, but if we learned something from the Mike Anderson regime that coming out flat seems to be a fewer and farther between occurrence. By and large he seems to get his teams to fight. For me I am disappointed in the abrupt ending of today's game, but the half that I saw today was different than anything I have seen from SJU in these spots for a number of years.

I believe there are bright times ahead.

On a separate note for those who think that the prospect of LJ leaving is a positive then you are watching something different than what I am watching


2017 Beat Georgteown and lose by 41 to Villanova
2018 Beat Georgetown and lose by 28 to Xavier
2019 Beat Depaul and lose by 32 to Marquette
2020 Beat Georgteown and beat Creighton for a half by 3

Sure, you weren't a player or coach that HAD to be there today for a 12 noon start. Did someone sneeze at halftime?
Finish the fcking game and go home but the conference allowed this game to start and they should have allowed the game to finish.

Agreed. I was proud that the big east had some balls and decided to play. But then they crumbled to the pressure. Complete paranoia is this wussy generation.

Disappointing of course that game v. Creighton was just cancelled after a nice first half
But things bode very well for our program for the future
One has to like what we saw last night and today
In the meantime let’s wash our hands, not touch our faces, stay safe. I’ve given up going to the gym & burning some energy - which is going to “ drive me nuts “

PS if I didn’t mention this before, during World War I circa 1918 there was the worldwide influenza and millions died - more people died from this virus than in the War. My 94 year old mom
lost 4 siblings in Sicily - while her father was away in the Italian Army - then an ally of the US.

All the best.
