Rating Miami's two wins over St. John's this season wasn't hard at all for Johnny Hemsley. "It was tremendous getting them at home, winning at Miami Arena," he said last night after scoring 29 points in the 25th-ranked Hurricanes' 73-70 victory over No. 9 St. John's. "But this. This was in New York at Madison Square Garden. We came out and did a great job. " The Hurricanes outscored the Red Storm, 14-3, over the final 51/2 minutes for the series sweep. They are the only non-Top 10 team to beat St. John's this season.

St. John's did exactly what it wanted to do last night against No. 4 Syracuse. The Red Storm just didn't do it long enough. Leading most of the game and threatening to end the Orangemen's unbeaten season, visiting St. John's fizzled again in the closing minutes and Syracuse escaped with a 63-57 victory to remain the only undefeated team in Division I. Playing with four fouls, Jason Hart hit a clutch three-pointer from the right corner to...

Villanova assistant coaches John Leonard and Steve Pinone were seated in a midcourt box at Madison Square Garden. For the first time since November, when 'Nova was in Maui, they were able to scout an opponent in person. The NCAA banned offcampus scouting before last season as a cost-cutting measure. Only when teams gather at the same site for a tournament is in-person allowed. And Villanova's coaches wanted an up-close look. The 'Cats (24-5) would play Providence or St. John's in tonight's Big East Tournament quarterfinal.

Boston and New York go together like, well, Philadelphia and New York, which is to say like oil and water. The rivalry dates back to when men wore tri-cornered hats and powdered wigs. All of which makes the happy union of St. John's coach Mike Jarvis, who is "Bahston" through and through, and his team, largely composed of native New Yorkers who believe the Big Apple is the center of the universe, seem as strange as topping a Nathan's hot dog with baked beans. "I can remember taking my physical education class to the opening game at Fenway Park one season in the '60s," said Jarvis, whose third-seeded Red Storm (28-8)

With Villanova ready to seize a pivotal Big East game by the throat in the final four minutes, St. John's actually outfought the Wildcats for control of it. Then again, that was pretty much the story of the entire day. Even with their shaky play on offense the last couple of weeks, the 15th-ranked Wildcats at least could rely on defense and rebounding to win or stay competitive to the end. But they were lacking in both areas Saturday, and the...

Terrell Stokes, Maryland's senior guard out of South Philadelphia and Simon Gratz High, knew there was something about St. John's he liked. He just couldn't quite put his finger on it. Then Stokes studied tapes of the Red Storm's 86-61, NCAA Tournament pasting of Indiana, and he knew. The way St. John's was abusing the Hoosiers, crisply getting up and down the floor and finding the open man, it almost was if Stokes' Terrapins were the ones putting an end to IU's season. So much for the Big East Conference's reputation for plodding, power basketball.

For a guy who had started the day planning to be anywhere but Madison Square Garden last night, Erick Barkley was the life of the party that was going on inside the famous arena. Still holding the game basketball, Barkley walked from one end of the Garden floor to the other, displaying a St. John's Big East Conference championship T-shirt for a platoon of cameras while Red Storm supporters in the sellout crowd of 19,528 sang to Frank Sinatra's recording of "New York, New York. " Instead of taking a "leave of absence," as he had declared just after midnight yesterday, Barkley stayed with the 19th-ranked Red Storm and sparked them to their first conference tournament title since 1986, an 80-70 victory last night over a Connecticut team seeking a record third consecutive championship.

Temple was one win away from making the second Philly Hoop Group Classic its own last night at the Palestra. But as they had against a different Big East Conference team earlier in the season, the Owls picked a bad time to miss several routine shots. The result was a 55-48 loss to St. John's that dropped Temple to 4-2. The win raised the Red Storm's record to 5-0 for the first time since the 2002-03 season and for the first time under coach Norm Roberts. Afterward, Temple coach Fran Dunphy said his team didn't display the toughness required to pull out the victory.

St. John's sophomore guard Erick Barkley, who missed three games this season for two NCAA rules violations, was reinstated yesterday and will be available for the 18th-ranked Red Storm's regular-season finale. St. John's was forced to declare its leading scorer ineligible Tuesday, and he missed that night's victory over Seton Hall - the Red Storm's eighth in succession. The NCAA requested further information regarding payment of part of Barkley's tuition at Maine Central Institute for the 1997-98 academic year.

To say that the New York Knicks traded for Carmelo Anthony this week because they wanted to take the attention of the Big Apple's sports fans away from St. John's might be a stretch. But it is accurate to say that the Red Storm's resurgence - they are ranked No. 23 in the nation going into Saturday's game against 15th-ranked Villanova at the Wells Fargo Center - has energized a fan base that hasn't had much to cheer about in nearly a decade. Winners of five consecutive games and eight of nine, St. John's (18-9, 10-5 Big East)

St. John's announced Friday that Rysheed Jordan, who starred at Vaux High School and played two seasons for the Red Storm, has decided to pursue a professional basketball career. Jordan is ineligible for the NBA draft, so he will not be allowed to play in the league next season. But he is eligible to play in the NBA Development League or in another country's professional league. The 6-foot-4 guard and Philadelphia native averaged 12 points and three assists in 60 career games. "Playing professional basketball has always been a goal of mine.

Former Roberts Vaux High basketball standout Rysheed Jordan could be ruled academically ineligible to play for St. John's this fall, according to a report by the New York Daily News. The 6-foot-4 guard would be the team's leading returning scorer if he comes back for his junior season. He averaged 14.1 points and a team-high 3.1 assists last season. According to the report, there is a chance that Jordan will not return to the team at all, although he is expected to meet with new St. John's coach Chris Mullin soon.

The T-shirt. When he was playing college ball in the early 1980s, Chris Mullin always wore that T-shirt underneath his St. John's tank top. Jay Wright had never seen anyone do that before. It was one of the first things Wright thought of when he learned this week that St. John's would hire Mullin as its new head coach, that a former Big East power had reached into its past to try to revitalize its present. Wright, Villanova's head coach, was still a student at Bucknell University then, often making the 150-mile drive from Lewisburg, Pa., to 'Nova's campus to see his girlfriend, Patty Reilly, who is now his wife.

Former all-American Chris Mullin has been offered the head coaching job at his alma mater, St. John's, ESPN reported Sunday. The Red Storm and coach Steve Lavin parted ways on Friday. Lavin coached five seasons at St. John's, where the Red Storm made two NCAA tournament appearances. Mullin was drafted seventh overall in 1985 by Golden State and played in the NBA from 1985-2001 for the Warriors and the Indiana Pacers. He has also been a member of the front office for both the Sacramento Kings and the Warriors following his retirement.

ON SATURDAY afternoon at the Wells Fargo Center, after fourth-ranked Villanova had turned a 10-point deficit into a 37-point win in the final 27 1/2 minutes against St. John's, Red Storm coach Steve Lavin paid Wildcat Ryan Arcidiacono maybe the ultimate compliment a point guard can get. He compared what the 6-3 junior does for the Wildcats to the impact Bobby Hurley had on the great Duke teams of the early 1990s. Hurley is the NCAA's all-time assists leader, and was the Most Oustanding Player in the 1992 Final Four.

HOW GOOD was Villanova on Saturday at the overflowing Wells Fargo Center against St. John's? In the final game of the best regular season in school history, the Wildcats played what had to be the best stretch of basketball by any team anywhere in 2014-15. 'Nova actually trailed St. John's 35-25 after a ridiculous dunk by Vaux High's Rysheed Jordan. Over the next 27 1/2 minutes, the Wildcats outscored the Red Storm, 80-33, and committed zero turnovers. They won, 105-68. St. John's (21-10, 10-8 Big East)

After Villanova saved one of its best performances of the 2014-15 regular season for last, St. John's coach Steve Lavin tried to explain what he had witnessed from an opponent that he said "has a No. 1 [NCAA tournament] seed all but locked up. " "They're playing at a high level, playing the best basketball of any team in the country. We played the best team in the country on their floor," said Lavin, who later mentioned Kentucky as "a top program" along with Villanova. The fourth-ranked Wildcats certainly looked the part Saturday before 19,161 at the Wells Fargo Center with the help of a 43-10 second-half run that resulted in a 105-68 blowout of the Red Storm, giving the Cats a program-record 29th regular-season win.

VILLANOVA WON 28 of its first 31 in 2013-14, which was merely the best regular season in program history. So what can you do for an encore? Well, these Wildcats were ranked 12th in the opening Associated Press poll, which sounded about right. Then they struggled in their opener against Lehigh in Allentown, which was scheduled as a homecoming for senior guard Darrun Hilliard, a Bethlehem native and their top scorer, who shot 4-for-18 that night. It happens. Six days later, they nearly lost at the Pavilion to Bucknell, coach Jay Wright's alma mater.
