I just caught Donnie Daniels on the pregame radio show. Here is some of what he said. First thing that jumps out at you is SJU averages 47 rebounds. Both of their guards average 10. They have a kid who led the nation in blocked shots a year or two ago (he didn't mention a name). He said they are a free spirited and free wheeling offensive team and I mean that in a good way. They have some really good rim protectors so we're going to have to lay off going in with the soft stuff. That being said we have a plan and we're looking forward to executing it. As has been stated numerous times though this is supposed to be a neutral court game, it is a road game for us. We told our kids not to get their heads down if their shot is block, if they turn the ball over of if they make a mistake. This is a championship game and our kids understand that. We're really looking forward to it.

The top shot blockers name is Chris Obekpa...he announced his intentions to transfer this summer but ultimately ended up returning to St. John's

It's going to be a very contested game. SJU is a playground team with lots of athletes. Our defense will be key. Rebounding, no turns and rebounding which we aren't the strongest. Pressure defense.. Make those FT"s!!
