We learned a lot about St. John’s in an uneven weekend at Barclays Center. First and foremost: This team needs to press. However poorly the Johnnies are playing, they are...
The season is seven games old, but St. John’s has fallen into a pattern of needing to dig itself out of deep holes, whether against inferior opponents or not. And it took the heavy lifting of go-to scorers D’Angelo Harrison and JaKarr Sampson, sparked by an aggressive defense, to right the Storm on Saturday against Georgia Tech in the consolation game of the Barclays Center Classic.
St. John’s left so much on the floor during a furious second-half comeback Friday night, it just seemed to take a little too much out of them and an All-Big Ten point guard held the Johnnies off in overtime.
The Storm overcame a 15-point second-half deficit and discovered what the shooting touch of Max Hooper can mean for the future, but couldn’t execute in enough spots to overcome Penn State’s veteran backcourt duo of Tim Frazier and D.J. Newbill in an 89-82 OT loss in the semifinals of the Barclays Center Classic.

St. John's coach Steve Lavin has said numerous times already this season that ballyhooed freshman point guard Rysheed Jordan will be “central” to what the Red Storm accomplishes. On Friday night, he was central to nothing in the Johnnies’ narrow 64-54 win over Monmouth at Carnesecca Arena.

Lou Carnesecca and Jerry Houston remember the commotion as if it were five years ago and not 50. The bus carrying the St. John's basketball team from New York pulled onto the campus at the United States Naval Academy on Nov. 22, 1963, and things weren't as expected for early on a Friday afternoon.
