Breathe again. St. John’s went 1/14 to end the game, but the turnovers and toughness earned the Red Storm a won over West Virginia, 70-68.
If it wasn’t the LJ Figueroa game of the season so far, it was indisputably the LJ half. Coming into the game, LJ was averaging just under 15 points per game. Against West Virginia, Figueroa had 17 points on a cool 7/10 from the floor and 1/2 from deep. Defensively, LJ channeled his inner Josh Roberts and sent away a pair of shots as well.
Coach Anderson has said on multiple occasions, this is not a one or two man team, and the Red Storm needed help from their scheme.
