    St. John's 75 Villanova 71

    Final.

    Pretty solid two-game stretch for St. John's.

    Bad loss for Villanova. At home too? Unacceptable. How do you lose to a team that was on an 11 game losing streak and hadn’t won a conference game yet? Unacceptable.

    St. John has come to life.

    They just beat two of the best teams in the country.

    St. John's wasn't on a losing streak. They just beat Duke at Duke in one of the most embarrassing losses in the history of college basketball.

    Duke fans are still consoling themselves with boneless chicken wings and everything.

    Your shade is noted, and your post is 100% spot on.

    I will add, these last two games should underscore, ironically, just how bad Mullin is late in games. How did this roster lose 11 straight Big East games? Glad Xavier has their two wins against them already, the Johnnies seem ready to win games in spite of their head guy.

    Nova, like Duke, will likely be fine.

    Mullin is learning on the job and as a fan of his I hope he has learned and gained some valuable lessons in the last week. Iíd love to see him succeed at St. Johnís. Iím a sucker for guys who are coaching where they were legends at as a player. Mullin at St. Johnís and Ewing at Georgetown takes me back to my childhood and gives me the warm fuzzies inside.

    Crazy. There's not a team in the country that has a better pair of wins than the Johnnies....I'd like to see them stay hot through the end of the season and make some noise in the BEast tournament.

    Wrap your head around this:

    It's also the first team in the AP poll era to win back-to-back games, both against top-five teams, immediately after a losing streak of 10 or more games.
