The Johnnies are actually probably off the bubble now. Hey, they were probably in before beating Pittsburgh on Saturday considering they're 7-7 against the RPI Top 50 and have huge wins over Georgetown, Notre Dame, Duke and now Pitt. They're 6-1 in their last seven games and will at least get to 19 wins with home games against DePaul and South Florida. Best win:
Duke (RPI: 6) Worst loss:
at Fordham (RPI: 244) Mitigating factor:
While the committee is happy St. John's nickname is no longer offensive, "Red Storm" remains just as stupid a nickname 17 years after it was adopted. Verdict:
In. If they do well in the Big East Tournament that seed could get better and better, too.
