Games to Circle

2/13 @ Hofstra:

The Red Storm’s lone non-conference will be their season opener on the road against the Hofstra Pride. While last season’s meeting between these two resulted in a 19-9 blowout victory for Hofstra, the Red Storm and Pride have had some very tight contests in recent years. Hofstra won 9-7 in 2019 and St. John’s took down the Pride 9-8 in 2018, which is their only win over Hofstra since 2014.

2/20 & 4/10 vs/@ Providence: St. John’s hasn’t won a Big East game since 2016. However, in 2019 they came close to ending that streak when they fell to Providence 8-7 in overtime. In that contest, Providence hit a fourth quarter run to take the lead before the Red Storm forced overtime, where Matt Grillo scored the game winner for the Friars.
