FORGOTTEN NUMBER: The Huskies are looking to win 20 games for the 20th straight season. This accomplishment gets overlooked now in the high stakes world they reside.
FAN FAVORITE: Hartley grew up in North Babylon, N.Y., which is about 20 minutes from the St. John’s campus. She was trying to get her hands on 25 tickets this week to accommodate friends and family who want to attend the game.
