St. John's vs Bucknell photo gallery

Courtesy of John Alber, a photo gallery of last night's St. John's game against the Bucknell Bison, a close 67-63 win powered by Phil Greene's scoring spurt; he had 16 points on the evening.

From the postgame recap:

"It was a difficult loss for us. We just couldn't hold down St. John's during the second half," Paulsen said. "We can't really replicate that kind of shot-blocking ability [in practice]."

About midway through the second half, St. John's switched into its familiar match-up "quicksand" zone defense. Bucknell was no longer able to find cutters to the basket with ease, and were forced to settle for low percentage shots from the perimeter.

"Coach Lavin made a smart move switching us to the zone," Sir`Dominic Pointer said. "Our defense is ultimately going to win us more games than our offense will."
