Since the inauguration of the new Big East conference in 2013, the St. John’s Red Storm have endured some ups and downs. In the first two seasons of the new conference, the Red Storm posted identical overall records of 20-13 in the 2013-14 season, and 21-12 in the 2014-15 season. In those seasons, they finished in fifth place in the Big East, and they also posted the same respectable record against the rest of the conference at 10-8. However, it all unraveled for the Red Storm last season. The team plummeted to the cellar with an overall record of 8-24, and were the punching bag of the Big East, as they went 1-17 against their conference adversaries.

1. Me: You’ve been with Seton Hall for a while now. They went to the NCAA tournament for the first time last season under your guidance, how do you see the rest of this year unfolding?

Kevin Willard: Well I think we put ourselves in a good position with the non-conference play. We had some good wins against our non-conference, and we finished against our non-conference at 10-2, and now I think we’ve put ourselves in a good position to start Big East play, and move on from there.
