College basketball exhibitions are completely forgetful … except for when a high-major program loses to a non-Division I school.
So remember this: St. Thomas Aquinas College 90, St. John’s 58.
That’s a real final score from Wednesday night.
That’s a Division II school beating a Big East school by 32 points.
Sir’Dominic Pointer is not walking through that door, I don’t guess. And that is some kind of embarrassing debut for first-year St. John’s coach Chris Mullin. Makes me look crazy for picking the Red Storm ninth in the Big East ahead of DePaul instead of 10th in the Big East behind everybody. But you live and you learn, you know? You live and you learn.
