St. Johns gets early road test, visits St. BonaventureNovember 17, 2009
@ Blue Cross Arena: Rochester, New York
Game time: 7 pm
Line: St. John’s -6
News and Notes: St. John’s owns an 11-5 advantage over the Bonnies in a series that dates to a 30-29 SBU victory on Jan. 2, 1922, but half of the matchups between the two schools occurred before 1930. Tuesday’s contest represents St. John’s first-ever men’s basketball matchup played in Rochester, N.Y., in the Red Storm/Redmen’s 2,555 games over the past 102-plus years. The Johnnies will once again be without forwards Anthony Mason Jr. and Rob Thomas, and backup Freshman point guard Malik Stith is questionable with an ankle injury.
