St. John’s University’s final regular season game of the year will be at the Madison Square Garden against Providence College with Bashir Ahmed in line to put in a major scoring production after an underwhelming pre final performance against Creighton.
He scored just six points. The Red Storm plays Providence on Saturday, March 4.
Temple University Power Forward Ernest Aflakpui has sank deep into the Owls rotation featuring less getting close to the season. Against Tulane, he played just 10 minutes and went scoreless in Temple’s 86-76 win.
A final burst on the score sheet in the final game on Sunday March 5 against East Carolina could be the trick to thrust him back into the starting lineup for the postseason.
The biggest prospect of the trio Amida Brimah, is sure to be in the starting lineup for University of Connecticut’s game against Cincinnati University on also on Sunday, March 5. After going off on a double digit scoring spree, Brimah has cooled off in recent games notching eight points and nine rebounds in a loss to East Carolina.
