This contest should be a battle of conflicting tempos. Since last season, St. John’s has preferred to play fast (38th in possessions per game), while Wagner has been more half-court-oriented (266th in possessions per game). It could also be a sloppy game for the offense of the Seahawks, which ranks 305th in ball protection (turnover percentage of 20.7 percent). They’ll be going up against the stingy defense of the Red Storm, which has forced the 46th-most turnovers in the country (21.6 percent).
