Seton Hall vs. St. John's key players to watch

Seton Hall

Kadary Richmond: There is no arguing that Kadary Richmond is Seton Hall's best player. He leads the team in points per game (16.1), assists per game (5.2), steals per game (2.0), and he's second in rebounds per game with 6.9. If a team can stop Richmond, they can stop the Pirates.

St. John's

Joel Soriano: St. John's likes to attack the interior of opposing defenses utilizing its center, Joel Soriano, who's averaging 15.0 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks per game. Teams have to bring their "A" game down low to compete with the Red Storm.

Seton Hall vs. St. John's prediction and pick

I'm going to lay the points on St. John's getting its revenge and covering the spread against the Pirates. Look for turnovers to play a big role in this game. Seton Hall ranks 297th in turnovers per possession which includes turning it over on 19.2% of possessions when playing on the road.

Now, the Pirates have to play a Red Storm team that ranks inside the top 80 in opponent turnovers per possession, including forcing turnovers on 20.6% of defensive possessions at home.

Don't let St. John's record in the conference fool you. The Red Storm ranks inside the top 100 in most defensive metrics in the country and has the weapons to shut down and beat Seton Hall.

Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
