Quick Villanova-St. John's Primer

Steve Lavin's Wife
Here we are, the moment of truth. We'll finally find out if Villanova is improved over last year. Perhaps not in the first game of the conference schedule, because St. John's is relatively equal in quality to Villanova, but probably within the next week and a half, when they'll  play South Florida and Syracuse, both on the road.

So what is there to know about St. John's? They're pretty equal to Villanova by almost any metric, perhaps slightly better on defense, which could cause problems, because Villanova has been prone to turning the ball over. Luckily, St. John's is an even worse team offensively than Villanova, which should help.

Basically if Villanova can hold SJU(NY) to their mediocre shooting ways while not shooting horribly themselves, they should win. You never know with this Villanova team though.
