PICS: No. 10 Xavier outlasts St. John's at Carnesecca Arena

January 06, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

My first game of 2016 was some NCAA hoops as No. 10 Xavier came into Queens to face St. John's. The Red Storm cut Xavier's 12-point lead to as little as one point late in the second half, but the Musketeers pulled away for a 74-66 victory. 

St. John's guard Federico Mussini went 5-for-8 from downtown as part of a 19-point night and teammate Ron Mvouika added 19 points and five rebounds in the loss. 

Xavier's Myles Davis scored a team-high 19 points with four assists and three boards, while Trevon Bluiett recorded 18 points, four assists and three steals in the victory.
