St. John's will provide test for Pitt

Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

At first glance, it may seem as if Pitt should have an easy time of things against St. John's this weekend. The Red Storm are, after all, only 16-10. But make no mistake about it - this is a game Pitt could lose if they don't show up.

The Red Storm have improved as the season's went along. They started off only 9-7, which, considering the amount of weak non-conference games, is worse than it sounds. But from there, St. John's won five straight Big East games. So far this season, they own Big East wins against Notre Dame, UConn, and Cincinnati. They've lost three of their past five games, but to some of the best teams in the conference in Georgetown, Syracuse, and Louisville.

If Pitt wants to be a team that can reach the Sweet 16 this year, these are games they should probably win. But playing on the road against a solid team makes this a bit of a challenge for the Panthers. St. John's is 7-3 over their past ten Big East games and playing well right now.
