This team is in many ways more frustrating to watch than some of the much worse Mullin teams because they are so talented yet fail to bring it every other game it seems. As bad as his first year team was and with last year's team post Lovett, the effort was always there. Opposing coach after opposing coach talks about how talented this SJU team is, how tough to guard etc. yet we are below .500 in league play and may not even make the tournament.
Based on performance to date, it is hard to see this team going on 2 or 3 game run in either BE or NCAA tourney as we can't seem to put together three good games in a row (put together stretches of four good games in a row at start of BE play but had long second half lulls against Hall & Nova). We'll see but we better bring it against Butler. Hope Coach read them the riot act in the locker room.

As far as the refs are concerned we can’t blame them anymore for the lack of quality play by this team. Offensive aggression and teams that attack the rim will draw more fouls which is what happens to us because we have no rim protector. Offensively we pass the ball around the three point line trying for an open three point shot so we don’t draw as many fouls playing that game. You’re not going to draw fouls coming down and jacking up a three 5 seconds into the shot clock. Teams that emphasize the three point shot have Varied results depending on whether or not they are making their shots. It is extremely difficult to stay hot from three game in and game out unless you are the Golden State Warriors. That leads to our inconsistency. We don’t get to the foul line enough to score some easy points to negate when we are not shooting well.

Like my golf game, this team is consistently inconsistent. We laid an egg today, pure and simple. No energy, poor effort. No excuses. Apparently, we don't have any leaders that can push the button to get these guys to play. Maybe they need to have a players only meeting before every game.

The one shining light was the play of Roberts. He played with energy and enthusiasm and made a nice contribution. I only wish that he and Williams had been given more playing time during the non conference schedule so that they would be better prepared to contribute during the league season.

This is clearly a Jekyll and Hyde team. It wouldn't shock me at all if we came out flying Tuesday night against Butler at CA.

Mark, completely agree with most of what you said. There was a lot to like about the wins at Creighton and Marquette. BUT, how can the completely listless, almost disinterested "effort" of today be explained? This shouldn't be about "well it happens". Twenty year old kids and everything right in front of them and.....this. Maddeningly, frustrating.

I am not calling myself a visionary by any means but I knew we were losing this game today. In my opinion Mullin is running a country club and that culture needs to change immediately. This is coaching and nothing more, and it kills me to sat that!

When the team bus rolled back into Queens, I'd let the guys know they'll be running wind sprints on the lacrosse field. Inexcusable effort once again by this group. Josh Roberts was the only one who looked interesting in hustling today.

We fight for our lives just to get to .500 and can’t stay there. Heron thing is shady and bruises aren’t reason not to play. Clark has been awful and the refs hate Mullin so we never get home cooking. Maddening team to watch.


You really are a jackass. Heron could barely walk.


Nothing posted anywhere about his knee specifically and didn’t see him. Watch your language.

"My back hurts" can't play, Ponds, we lose. I scrape my knee , never came out as a kid. Huron ,the pro scouts , will have the same thoughts as me. Your injury deflated the team from the start. It is a game driven by emotion and momentum until our team figures that out ,we as alumni and fans will be disappointed.

Down 46-45 at home in second half & allowing 24-11 run by PC says a lot re inconsistency of Johnnies.

No not everyone was loving this team,it like riding a 3 wheel bike with one wheel is not working. We have had 4yrs to get a 3rd wheel (like a big east center who could get us 8-10 rebounds in 4o mins protect the rim block shots and provide us with min 1o- 12 pts per game .Will cheer this team on but let’s stop deceiving ourselves we are at best a middle of the pack team
