The slog through Big East play just got tougher for St. John's and first-year coach Mike Anderson. The Red Storm's second-leading scorer, Mustapha Heron, is likely out for the season with an ankle injury, according to the New York Post.

Heron, a senior guard and transfer from Auburn, was averaging 13.8 points per game in his second year with the program. St. John's (13-11, 2-9 Big East) has lost six of its last seven games after a 12-5 start to the season. The Red Storm hosts Providence at 8:30 p.m ET Wednesday on CBS Sports Network.
