Tuesday’s St. John’s-Providence game in Rhode Island, once uncertain to be played as scheduled due to a winter storm, is a go.
The Johnnies left Monday afternoon, and at the time, it was believed the contest could be moved to Wednesday due to a travel ban.
But the forecast improved, allowing the Big East battle to tip off Tuesday at 7 p.m.
Providence did cancel classes on Tuesday, but that didn’t alter the game’s status.
This is a crucial point of the season for struggling St. John’s, which has lost six of its last eight games and is currently projected by most Bracketologists to be outside the March Madness bracket picture.
St. John’s is 2-7 in Quad 1 games but would get a third Quad 1 win if it defeats Providence Tuesday.
The Johnnies won the first matchup between the two teams, 75-73, on Jan. 10 at the Garden.
