3.6 Around The Big East

Matt Cashore-USA TODAY Sports

Along with game recaps, we have GIFs today.

Neither of these results are particularly surprising, but they do have interesting items related to them.

#24 Notre Dame 66, St. John's 40 - Things seemed to be going okay for St. John's in their first game without D`Angelo Harrison. They had the lead at halftime, and Notre Dame didn't take the lead from them until a Pat Connaughton layup with 13:49 left in the game. Unfortunately, Connaughton's shot was the second bucket in a 10-0 run for the Irish, and things got out of hand quickly. Then, as Mike Brey was taking Jack Cooley out of the game because ND was up big and it was Senior Night, Sir`Dominic Pointer redefined the concept of "out of hand."

I'm including a second GIF that has less of the tussle because watching Cooley run over is hilarious.

So, yeah. Pointer and Cameron Biedscheid were both ejected for fighting. and Garrick Sherman got tossed for leaving the bench. $5 says he stays on the bench if he hadn't gotten used to leaving the bench because he played so well in the 5OT game against Louisville. THIS IS ALL YOUR FAULT, CARDINALS. UPDATE! As reported in the comments, Amir Garrett from SJU, not Garrick Sherman from ND, is the dude who left the bench. I still blame Louisville.

In any case, Pointer will definitely be suspended for the Red Storm's season finale against... Hey, look at that, they play Marquette on Saturday. Biedscheid should be suspended for Notre Dame's finale against Louisville as well, but Mike Brey apparently can't skip out on an opportunity to complain about something. You can check out Rumble In The Garden for more on this.

Providence 76, Seton Hall 66 - I meant to watch more of this game, but the Friars seemed firmly in control of this one while Indiana was busy losing on Senior Night for the third time in five years, and that was way too funny to miss out on. Kadeem Batts has been lighting it up ever since he took a swing at the Bradley Center Bat. He went for 27 and 12 to provide the firepower that the Friars needed to keep their NCAA bubble hopes alive. Meanwhile, over on the Seton Hall side of things, Kevin Willard skipped out on his postgame appearance on SHU's own radio broadcast for the second time this season. The Pirates' athletic department has apparently clarified that Willard just went long in the locker room and didn't skip it intentionally, but seeing as you can talk to the team any time you like, it kind of seems like he did. Then again, it's not like he kept the print media waiting until after 1:15 in the morning, so it's not that big of a deal. Head over to South Orange Juice for more on the game.
