STJ owns a 60-20 record against the Rams, and a 22-3 mark at home in a series that dates to a 21-13 Fordham win on Jan. 30, 1909. The two squads have not met since 2002.  St. John’s earned 14 points in the AP Poll (41st nationally) and nine points from the coaches (36th) this week. With a record that includes four wins away from home, St. John’s continues to be ranked No. 4 in the RPI report according to rpiratings.com, with the 19th-strongest schedule in the nation (25th non-conference). Prior to the last two weeks, the Red Storm hadn’t received votes in the polls since Jan. 23, 2006, when the squad defeated then-No. 17/15 Louisville (Jan. 17) and then-No. 9/9-Pitt (Jan. 21).
