The St. John's Red Storm found a way to keep Creighton's Doug McDermott from beating them a second time this season - they didn't let him shoot for the final 8:40.
Doug McDermott had been thinking about playing in Madison Square Garden since it was announced last March that Creighton would be joining the Big East.
Sir'Dominic Pointer had the crowd at Carnesecca Arena groaning with 4.3 seconds to play Thursday night. By the time the final buzzer sounded, the junior swingman had made those fans happy after seeing a tough losing streak come to an end.
"The game was still in hand and we got a big shot from a big player," Pointer said before changing his description slightly. "We got a great shot from a great player."
"I was throwing the ball long. We had no timeouts. Nobody was open so I lobbed it long and hoped somebody would grab it," he said of the pass from under his own basket that went out of bounds at the other end of the court. "Luckily it got hit out of bounds. I had to take a chance with 5 seconds left."
