St. John’s went into Philly tonight wearing a dreadful 0-11 Big East record, yet riding high off a bizarre 81-77 takedown of Duke just four days ago. Still, going up against number-one Villanova, their conference drought seemed all but guaranteed to continue.
St. John’s opened its Big East schedule by dropping all eleven games so far this year—even losing to lowly DePaul—but today’s visit by Duke to Madison Square Garden turned things around for Chris Mullin’s squad as the Red Storm knocked off the fourth-ranked Blue Devils 81-77.
For almost two months, my neighborhood in Tampa has been terrorized by a serial killer. Four people are dead, with nothing connecting them other than that they live here in Seminole Heights. Yesterday, cops arrested Howell “Trai” Donaldson III and charged him with the murders; today, Rob Dauster over at NBC Sports…
Things got real testy in the second half of Georgetown’s meeting with St. John’s in the Big East Tournament. After Georgetown players took issue with a seemingly dirty foul, they scuffled a bit. Then, volcano of angry energy Chris Mullin left the bench and went out of his way to yell at John Thompson III.
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. That's big for Notre Dame,…
Brian Colleary, a senior associate AD and the former AD at Duquesne, allegedly scalped tickets to last year's game against Duke and to the Big East tournament. He will not face criminal charges. One source told the New York Post the amount of money involved was not significant, while another said it was around…
In the Big East tournament, Rutgers was just victimized by a historically bad no-call (that immediately followed up two fairly egregious no-calls against them). Trying to run the clock out, the St. John's player traveled, stepped out of the bounds, and chucked the ball into the seats with nearly two seconds left. No…
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.
In sports, everyone is a winner—some people just win better than others. Like Steve Lavin, who is not only young, well-groomed and gainfully employed, but also married to an attractive human female that (presumably) has sex with him.
Another day, another report that St. John's has struck out with another candidate for its vacant coaching position. Doesn't anybody want this job? It's actually getting kind of pathetic.
Our college sports teams are rocketing into the 21st Century on a wave of aggressive, overcaffeinated, lightning-themed spirit creatures. Why is that bird looking at me like that? Is he smiling or mad? Get out of my soul, winged devil!
What, no giant talking beer keg? St. John's has a storied and troubled history when it comes to mascots, and the current vote to find a new one is not going to help, it appears.
The first player ever to hit a home run at Citi Field? Sean Lamont of Georgetown, which beat St. John's 6-4 on Sunday as Mets fans got to give their new, controversial ballpark a test drive.
