New, comment

The Johnnies have added three opponents to their 2014 non-conference schedule according to CBS Sports.

Yesterday we discussed Seton Hall's home-and-home series with the SEC's Georgia Bulldogs for 2014 and 2015. Today, St. John's has gotten into the non-conference scheduling mix.

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, who reported the news about The Hall a day ago, reports today that the Red Storm would play host to the Saint Mary's Gaels and Long Beach State 49ers in the upcoming 2014-15 basketball season. In addition, the college basketball insider also reported that they would take on the Tulane Green Wave at the state-of-the-art Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.

As our friends at Rumble in the Garden have gone on about, the Johnnies appear to be displaying no fear when it comes to their non-conference schedule for this fall. Having already inserted themselves into the preseason NIT, and with matchups against Gonzaga, Minnesota, Duke, and Syracuse on the board now, the Red Storm certainly will not appear cowardly before heading into Big East play.

Of course, whether or not they make it out unscathed is another story for another day.
