This will be very strange St. John’s basketball season

This will be very strange St. John’s basketball season

St. John’s made it to the opening tip as scheduled. There were no positive COVID-19 tests. No 14-day pauses. That, in itself, was a reason for celebration as the college basketball season begins amid a global pandemic.

“We’ve kind of created a semi-bubble,” second-year coach Mike Anderson told The Post in a phone interview.

That’s not to say there won’t be setbacks. Getting through the season unscathed seems about as likely as going undefeated. All over the Northeast, there were interruptions before the regular season even began. Iona, Seton Hall, Siena, Syracuse, St. Bonaventure, Monmouth (twice), Rider, Manhattan and NJIT have had to pause preseason practices due to positive tests. Stony Brook’s opener against Bryant on Wednesday night was canceled due to a positive test by a referee.

“It goes all the way to the date of the game whether you’re going to play or not. I’ve never been through [anything like this] before. I just think you got to be ready,” Anderson said as St. John’s got ready for Wednesday night’s opener against Saint Peter’s. “We’ve got 26 games on our schedule. I’m preparing them to be ready for that.”

St. John’s was one of the last teams to be on the floor last year, playing a half against Creighton in the Big East Tournament quarterfinals at the Garden on March 12, before the tournament was canceled due to the virus. Soon, everything shutdown.
