Greetings everybody from Sexton Arena where the 2012-13 season is about to get underway for the St. John’s basketball team as the Johnnies play host to St. Cloud State in nonconference action.
Always a big rivalry between the two neighboring schools. The Division II Huskies have won 10 of the past 13 meetings.
The Johnnies enter play a bit banged up. Nick Latzke, a freshman who redshirted at Division I Tulane last season, is out 2-4 weeks with back and ankle issues. But Kevin McKenzie, who received stitches this week, is suited up to play.
I’ll have an update at halftime and afterward. In the meantime, you can follow along on Twitter at @rajko1973 or @andyrennecke for the St. Cloud State perspective.
