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.

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

Mount St. Mary's becomes the third #NECMBB team appearing on St. John's non-conference home schedule to go along with Sacred Heart and St. Francis Brooklyn.

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.

ATTENTION:

Major updates were made to the servers / software hosting redmen.com. There was also one significant change to the website this week to address keeping up with current standards and practices.

It has now become standard practice for all websites to be served as https (as opposed to the original http).


A couple of years ago I enabled https on the site as optional but as of today, the site is forcing https. Any link coming into the site should be automatically converted on the fly and you should not have to do anything on your end.

However if you do notice recent problems, please contact me directly via email: webmaster@redmen.com or via private message on the site.


Also if you have forgotten your username and/or password here are two links to address that (the links only work if you are not currently logged in):
