BIG EAST Releases Remainder of Men’s Basketball Schedule

 

The BIG EAST Conference released the remainder of the 2020-21 men’s basketball schedule on Monday afternoon. Here is some of the schedule for fans of the St. John’s Men’s Basketball team:

The second portion of the schedule, which includes two separate week-long breaks for make-ups of postponed games, will begin in late December.  Tip-off times and television coverage will be announced at a later date.

As of press time on Dec. 14, all St. John’s home games will be held at Carnesecca Arena without fans in attendance.  Game location and fan policy is subject to change.

The Red Storm, which has four conference games scheduled prior to Christmas, will return to action on Dec. 30 when it travels to perennial BIG EAST power Villanova for a contest at The Finneran Pavilion.

After the New Year, the Johnnies will play their first game of 2021 at Carnesecca Arena when they welcome DePaul to Queens on Jan. 2.  Last season, the Red Storm swept the regular season series with the Blue Demons.

The following week, the Johnnies will hit the road for a pair of contests in the western part of the conference beginning with a game at Xavier on Jan. 6 before heading to Creighton on Jan. 9.

After those Midwest meetings, St. John’s will return to Queens for two games, welcoming Butler and Marquette to Carnesecca Arena on Jan. 12 and Jan. 16, respectively.

Following an 11-day break, the Johnnies will hit the road once again for a Jan. 27 contest at DePaul before returning to Queens for games against a pair of charter BIG EAST members in Connecticut (Jan. 31) and Villanova (Feb. 3).

A trip to Providence awaits the Red Storm on Feb. 6 before the Johnnies enter their first scheduled break for make-up games.  As of Monday morning, St. John’s has had two contests postponed, a pair of road matchups at UConn and Butler.

The schedule will resume on Feb. 16 with a game against Xavier at Carnesecca Arena before the Red Storm heads to Milwaukee for a showdown with Marquette on Feb. 20.

Following the second scheduled break for make-up games, the Red Storm will return to action for its final two regular season games at home against Providence (March 3) and Seton Hall (March 6).
