St. John's vs. Villanova: The Day After

USA TODAY Sports

Jay Wright Quote

That was a difficult game and you have to give St. John's a lot of credit. They lost their leading scorer [D'Angelo Harrison] and you're not just going to go find one. I thought Steve [Lavin] did a great job of finding another way... We were struggling in the first half. I felt the second half we got more aggressive against their pressure and started to make some plays and got to the foul line.
