TV: FS1 (Steve Buchhantz & Donny Marshall)

KenPom Ranking: St. John’s 86, Georgetown 97

KenPom Projection: Georgetown 77, St. John’s 76, (82 percent)

Line: Georgetown -1, o/u 153.5

Bobby’s Keys to the Game:

  1. Limit St. John’s open 3-pointers: It sounds obvious but it’s actually a thing this team needs to really improve on. Allowing teams to shoot 40 3-pointers a game isn’t going to result in many conference wins.
  2. Limit Bad Turnovers. Although it didn’t result in a win, Georgetown cut down on turnovers from the Coppin State win to the Villanova loss. The next step is limiting the kind of live ball turnovers that turn into easy scores.

Prediction: St. John’s 81, Georgetown 77. Just like Georgetown I’m 2-3 with the upset loss to Navy.
