It almost doesn't matter that St. John's got bodied by Villanova, 105-68, as the Wildcats clinched the Big East regular season title. Not when a photographer so perfectly captured Johnnies sophomore guard Rysheed Jordan doing this to Nova's Dylan Ennis:
Last night's St. John's-Notre Dame bout at The Bra was an easy win for the 24th-ranked Irish, but it came at a cost: a Senior Night scuffle between ND's Cameron Biedscheid and SJU swingman Sir'Dominic Pointer resulted in both being ejected for fighting and a mandatory one-game suspension.
