Our team and coaches can watch SJU V Temple now on ESPNU to scout our opponent.
Our game tips at 2PM Saturday at a gym I've been going to since I was 13.
My HS graduation from SJP was in this gym!

Jim:

I hope you have a desirable seating assignment at the "Lou" Arena. We will be watching you Saturday on the Fox Sports channel.

FYI: Today is 11/22. How could anybody who was born in the 40's or 50's forget what happened on this day 59 years ago (JFK).

Watching the SJU/Temple game.....the backcourt of Posh and Curbelo is very good. It'll be pretty intense in that gym; good prep for the regular season.

SJU's Soriano, center, is lighter, faster and better than last year and one big man!
Let's just suit up and play!
Hope 98 year old Louie can make the game.

Our MBB team had a wonderful Dublin trip beyond the two wins!
They avoided the WNY Super Storm.
They'll arrive in NYC with beautiful weather after Thanksgiving!
Hope the weather will be better than fair v a large favorite Jonnies!
I grew up in this gym.

Anyone see the lowest points scored season to date in D1?
Wisconsin 43- Dayton 42 today...For recent "HS Grads" that totals 85!

There was a time when a game like this would draw hundreds of alumni and family. Sadly that’s no longer likely to happen. It will be interesting to learn how many will attend.

Big game tomorrow vs the Redmen from SJU. Tip-off is at 2:00pm carried live on FOX Sports 2. ..According to Vegas , NU is getting 19 points. …I remember when I was working in NYC fresh out of NU , we beat the Chris Mullins led Johnnie’s which was splashed all over media. .. Also, NU defeated SJU in the ECAC Holiday Fest at MSG in the mid 90’s under Jack Armstrong. I believe we lost to Princeton in the finals. Great moments in NU basketball history.

101st Game in history of NU V SJU, our sister school.
I along with four NU classmates attended St. John's Prep in Brooklyn.
We arrived in '61 simultaneously with St. John's College move to the new campus in Hilcrest, Queens, where they became SJU.
I attended SJU Grad school before deploying.

Bump it up Jim! Yeah, this use to be a monumental game for both programs back in the day. I attended a SJU- NU game at the AUD in Buffalo circa 1979 when the Redmen featured Wayne McCoy and Bernard Rencher. Of course we lost. Great memories though.
