St. John's Rallies to Defeat Villanova - Feb 18, 2019

LJ Figueroa
New York, N.Y. - It was a tale of two halves as the St. John's Red Storm took on the visiting Villanova Wildcats before a sellout crowd at at Madison Square Garden. The Red Storm rallied from a 19-point first half deficit to take down the Wildcats 71-65. It was the first win for St. John's against Villlanova at Madison Square Garden in 17 years.

Early on, it appeared St. John's would suffer an embarrassing blow out loss as Villanova jumped out to a powerful 29-10 lead. From there, St. John's would chip away at the lead and gradually claw their way back into a competitive place. They entered halftime down by 11 points after St. John's Justin Simon hot a 70-foot shot at the halftime buzzer.

In the second half, body language shifted as St. John's played with an emotional intensity that Villanova seemed to relinquish. By the 8:25 mark in the second half, the game was tied. Shamorie Ponds struggled mightily in this contest as he only shot 2-of -14 from the field. This cold shooting performance from the leading scorer of his team triggered a need for his teammates to carry the offensive load.

LJ Figueroa (6'5''-G) and Mustapha Heron led the second half charge as they poured in 22 and 19 points, respectively. Both took advantage of their trips to the foul line and each hit seven of their eight attempts. Figueroa continues to showcase his versatility as he knocks down threes with confidence, going 3-of 6 from deep, while also attacking the rim with aggression and tact. He is a prospect that has unlimited potential due to his versatility, athleticism and 6'6'' frame. As he progresses as a basketball player, his ball-handling will need to improve so that he may perform higher-level playmaking abilities seen at the professional level.

Heron continues to demonstrate why he's one of the most valuable transfers in the country. The former Auburn star turned St. John's playmaker is a force to be reckoned with by any team. He knocks down threes at a 43 percent rate and can simultaneously bully-ball his way into the lane after a shot-fake from the perimeter to move the defense. His handles are deceptively tight as well as his footwork, making him a troublesome defensive assignment given his physical strength that goes with his skill work.

Figueroa and Heron have solidified themselves as elite Big East talents this season. Despite the rough night for Ponds, the Red Storm were able to tough this one out in a miraculous come from behind victory over a ranked Villanova team. After this signature win, it is clear that St. John's is a team that no one in the country should take lightly. Considering how poorly Ponds played in this game, it is evident that they are an elite team when he, Figueroa and Heron are all on their best game. Any team that should come across their path in the near future had better take notice.

No. 10 seed Florida stops Nevada comeback for 70-61 upset - 1 day ago
Florida was cruising toward a surprisingly easy victory over Nevada in its opening NCAA Tournament game. Then Nevada furiously tried to stave off the upset with a frantic second-half push that fell just short. Florida nearly squandered a double-digit lead before finally stopping the comeback and closing out a 70-61 Thursday night victory in the West Region. 'I thought we were just watching the clock and hoping a little bit,' Florida coach Mike White said about Nevada's late push. Andrew N...   [read more]
