Seven college basketball teams won as many December games at Madison Square Garden as the Knicks
By ADAM ZAGORIA
Now that the Knicks’ December home slate is done, the final results are in.
In seven games at Madison Square Garden this month, the Knicks came away with one win — a 136-134 OT victory over the Milwaukee Bucks back on Dec. 1. The Knicks lost their final six games at home this month, including Tuesday’s 109-95 loss to those same Bucks.
During that same span, seven college basketball teams won as many games at the Garden as the Knicks (1): Florida, Oklahoma, Seton Hall, Columbia, St. John’s, Duke and Villanova. None of those teams played more than one game at the Garden in December.
