Let's look at some different scenarios:
St. John's is not going to lose their final four games and get knocked out in the first round of the Big East Tournament. However, they could lose at Villanova and at Seton Hall. Once the Big East Tournament starts up, who knows what could happen.
I say worst case is St. John's finishes 19-12 and lands a nine seed in the tournament.
Let's say they get hot and win the rest of their games. A 24-9 record with a Big East Tournament Championship and I think suddenly you could see this team ranked as high as a three seed.
They finish out 3-1 losing at Villanova. I like their chances in the Big East tournament because of how well they have played in Madison Square Garden. They will have home-court advantage and I can see them picking up at least two wins. My prediction is a championship loss to either Pittsburgh or Notre Dame. This would give the Johnnies a 22-11 record and a seven seed in the East bracket.
