St. John's will host Mount St. Mary's as part of its 2018-19 non-conference schedule, per a source. #SJUBB


Hopefully this is an exhibition game against this D3 team.:whistle:


Someone should inform Mount St. Mary's that they apparently were removed from D-I's Northeast Conference and placed in D-III without their knowledge.


There are two Mt. St, Mary's. It would be helpful to know which one. Since we have been playing D2-3 teams in exhibitions I was hoping it was not the D3 team. Not that the Mount from Md. will do much for our SOS either.

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

Right. And most complained about the schedule prior to last season as well.

Looks like Religion and Pacifist Politics at play here.

Maybe we finish top half of that conference at least. ;) :)

If we lose to any one of them, there will be a couple posters saying we should leave the Big East, and insisting that it makes sense.

I realize that we had a good SOS last year, but how many people know we had a top 10 SOS? It's not just about that, it's about generating buzz. If it were SJ taking on Kentucky at MSG it would create huge buzz. I'm not saying we can't play any cupcakes...I know even the best teams have cupcakes. I would just like to see maybe 2 more games against real opponents that are nationally recognized. Texas, Florida, FSU, Gonzaga, Indiana, Ohio State, etc. Not world beaters but good solid brands in college basketball. We also seem to play down to competition...look at the Molloy game this past season. Hard to get up for no name schools.

We beat Duke in our out of conference schedule last year and were the talk of college basketball for the day. What are you even talking about with buzz? Also, why would these big time teams want to play us? They can come to MSG in one of these tournaments or events, get a split of the revenue, and play a team that will help their resume without us.

Even if the big time teams wouldn't play us, it is still totally the fault of the coaching staff. Just ask (almost) anyone on our site.

St. Arnulf of Metz - Bishop & member of the court of the Frankish king Theodebert II of Austrasia. A noble, Arnulf married Doda & their son was Ansegisel. Ansegisel married Beggia, the daughter of Pepin of Landen, starting the Carolingian dynasty.
