St. John’s Suffers Dismal Loss to Boston College, Pitino Sounds Off

St. John’s had their four-game winning streak halted in Brooklyn on Sunday afternoon, falling to Boston College 86-80 in the 2023 NABC Brooklyn Showcase. Head coach Rick Pitino spent his Barclays Center debut renewing a classic Big East rivalry, as Boston College was a member of the historic conference from 1979-2005. The Red Storm were unable to retain a double-digit second half lead, dropping them to 6-3 on the season.

In a dreary first half, both teams were far from spectacular. They combined for an atrocious 2-15 from beyond the arc, leading to a low scoring affair at the halftime buzzer.
