The Skinny: Coming off one of the most successful seasons in school history, the Red Storm struggled at times for consistency. Sophomore point guard Nadirah McKenith battled through injuries all season. This is only the second time in school history that St. John’s has gone to the NCAA tournament in back-to-back seasons. The last time was the 1982-83 season and 1983-84 season, under coach Don Perrelli.
