Once again, a slow start hurt St. John's (2-0), leading to a 50-43 halftime deficit, powered by Franklin pierce's Ryen Vilmont and his 21 points - and only one block for the Red Storm, dealing with foul trouble.
Still, St. John's pulled the game out with increased intensity to knock off Franklin Pierce, playing their third game in three nights. It was a solid second half, but questions are raised by the first half struggles.
St. John's wore the blue uniforms again, and D`Angelo Harrison's effort - which included 17 rebounds - gave the team a win.
Thanks to Wendell Cruz for the photos. The Rumble will have more of a recap today, and you can read the fast recap from last night: St. John's vs Franklin Pierce: Red Storm use second half surge to secure the win 94-81.
