St. John’s defeated by Georgetown, 68-56 -
After the Hoyas busted up the Johnnies 68-56 to sweep the season series, Amir Garrett of St. John’s and Georgetown’s Jabril Trawick had to be separated on the postgame handshake line. The trash talk almost escalated into fisticuffs but Georgetown’s Nate Lubick restrained center Aaron Bowen from jumping in while assistant coaches and Verizon Center security pushed the players apart.

Perhaps the most remarkable statistic wasn’t obvious in the postgame box score: In a physical February Big East matchup, Georgetown nearly made it through the game without attempting a single free throw. St. John’s committed a few sloppy fouls late, though, giving the Hoyas a 5-of-7 mark at game’s end.

The crowd in the Verizon Center aka "phone booth" was alive, the cheerleaders cheered, the student section was in full force. Jack and JJ were busting and tearing it up, the Hoyas band was rocking. The Stonewalls, steadily waving the old blue and gray all game was totally amazing, and myself the same ole me hyped and passionate about my squad. The Hoyas! Hoya Saxa! The Hoyas are coming! It's gonna be a Hoyas Banner Year! Hoyas Banner Year.

"He’s been playing at a very high level for a long time now, to tell you the truth. I said a couple of games ago, he wasn’t up here, but I said Nate gave us quality stats, not quantity stats. When we need something done, he gets a rebound, makes an assist, gets a basket. He’s been doing that consistently and tonight was no exception," said Thompson III of Lubick’s play.

The Red Storm was looking forward to the chance to redeem itself for its worst performance of the season — the Jan. 12 beat-down by the Hoyas at the Garden — but instead had their five-game winning streak ended.
