If anyone caught parts of the St. John's game, they were down to D3 St. Mary's for most of the second half, and they honestly looked terrible. I know it's preseason but it looked like they have a lot of work to do.
In a lot of cases the coaches use the exhibition games to work on things the teams are struggling with in practice as opposed to always employing what has been working in practice. So no one can really get a handle how good are bad in exhibition games. Think of them is glorified practices.
