This is not the kind of beginning Chris Mullin was hoping for in his second season at his alma mater.
St. John’s lost to Delaware State, 79-72, on Tuesday night at Carnesecca Arena, the Red Storm’s fifth straight loss.
Delaware State entered the game with a 1-5 record, their only win coming against Division III Summit on opening night before they dropped five straight. The Hornets finished 7-25 last season, 5-11 in the MEAC.
On offense, Delaware State (2-5) made 58 percent of its shots from the floor and 53 percent from beyond the three-point arc. Defensively, they relied on a zone for most of the game.
