If we want more MSG games fans need to show up. We are not drawing against Marquette, Butler, DePaul, Creighton and Xavier unless we are top 15 team.
It makes sense there is no home court advantage.
My sense is staff really wants to make sure they make NCAA's this year and best chance of doing that is playing the opponents on campus.
Secondly, this is a money issue, school was losing big money playing at MSG. Said on the Jungle the school loses money if they do not sell 10,000 tickets. This does not include tickets given away to organizations and family.
MSG scheduling is nonsense, MSG is dark from Jan 21 to Jan 30 to set up for Grammy's. 2/10 for Marquette is at CA but MSG is free. 1/6 vs Depaul is at CA but MSG is free. NBA starting two weeks earlier so plenty available dates this was a school decision not MSG.
Two additional dates could have been found if they really wanted to play at MSG.

I agree. This gives us more of a home court advantage and saves money..Schools like Syracuse is tantamount to a neutral court, giving us a disadvantage. But, they draw well. Can't blame SJU for not scheduling DePaul at MSG, not exactly a big time draw.

Back from a long break with a belated post of takeaways on the Big East schedule...I grouped Seton Hall in on this one too, so my apologies for straying into enemy territory!

Just my take, it's not a daily dose if you can take days off all willy nilly, much less take long breaks.
There have been nearly 3000 Gods so far but only yours actually exists.The others are silly made up nonsense. But not yours. Yours is real.

From Jon Rothstein's 20 Impact Transfers-

Justin Simon, St. John’s: A former top-25 recruit, the 6-4 Simon has the type of basketball body that Norman Rockwell would have painted. A freak athlete who never found a regular spot in Arizona’s rotation two years ago, this California native will be a key piece for the Red Storm on defense thanks to his size, strength, and athleticism. With Simon in tow, look for Chris Mullin to regularly use him in a three-guard alongside Marcus Lovett and Shamorie Ponds.

Marvin Clark, St. John’s: Tougher than a two-dollar steak, this former Michigan State forward comes to New York City with the responsibility of leading St. John’s back to the top tier of the Big East. Armed with the strength to guard the low post on defense and extend the floor on offense, Clark brings major experience to the Red Storm after being a key contributor when Michigan State advanced to the Final Four in 2015.

Won't be secret if it is announced. :huh: Don't understand why NCAA doesn't just allow an exhibition game or even if kept as a scrimmage to be on the schedule and allow fan attendance. They could even donate any money made after expenses to charity.

I hate these secret scrimmages, mostly because Baldi always seems to claim we lost, and then conflicting accounts surface afterward.
