Georgetown 89 St. Johns 78 at Madison Square Garden

Since professional basketball tickets are so expensive and the New York Knicks are playing very poorly, we decided to see the St. John's Red Storm play at Madison Square Garden.  Today's game was a Big East matchup with the Johnnies playing the Hoyas of Georgetown.

It was a close game in the first half, but the Hoyas pulled ahead later on.  The teams were tied at 50, but a 10-0 run by Georgetown put them ahead for good.  Sharmorie Ponds scored 4 straight points for the Red Storm to close the gap to 2, but the Hoyas pulled ahead to win 89-78.

Mac McClung scored 25 points while Jessie Govan added 20 for the victors.
