UCONN used eight players, all getting double figures in minutes. St. John’s played nine with seven going 10 or more minutes.

Shabazz Napier came on strong the second half. Napier finished the first twenty minutes with zero points and a -4 efficiency. He scored all of his 14 points after intermission and was instrumental in the Huskies’ second half comeback.

St. John’s coach noted how significant it was for the Storm to win with Chris Obekpa limited to 13 minutes with foul trouble. Obekpa did get limited minutes but used them well showing a strong efficiency of 9 or an impressive .692 efficiency per minute, the leading figure for both teams.
