The St. John’s Red Storm faced a tough battle against the Marquette Golden Eagles, ultimately falling short in a matchup reminiscent of their Jan. 20 encounter, 75-86. The Johnnies, now seventh in the Big East, face a tough road for their remaining conference slate.

After a lopsided victory over DePaul on Feb. 7, the Red Storm entered the game hungry for their first win against a ranked opponent in nearly a year.
