St. John's announces nonconference schedule

St. John's released its full 2013-14 nonconference men's basketball schedule Tuesday.

The two highlights? Previously announced games on Nov. 8 against Wisconsin at a neutral site (Sioux Falls, S.D.), and on Dec. 15 against Syracuse at Madison Square Garden.

The Wisconsin game, St. John's regular season opener, is the only nonconference game the Red Storm will play outside of New York City this season.

St. John's will play two exhibition games at Carnesecca Arena, versus Division II opponents San Francisco State (Nov. 2) and Humboldt State (Nov. 5).

The Red Storm will also host Wagner, Bucknell, Monmouth, Longwood, San Francisco, Youngstown State and Dartmouth at Carnesecca.

They'll play Fordham at the Garden on Dec. 8, as part of the MSG Holiday Festival. And they'll play three games at the Barclays Center -- versus Columbia, Penn State and either Georgia Tech or Mississippi.

The Big East will release its full conference schedule at a later date. But St. John's will open up conference play with a game at Xavier on New Year's Eve.
