Rally Falls Short As St. John’s Defeats Boston College 97-93.

Boston College (1-2) fought hard to come back from a 20 point deficit, but their blistering rally wasn’t enough, as they fell to St. John’s 97-93. Guard Wynston Tabbs led the Eagles with 23 points, while center CJ Felder had 18 points and three blocks. 

The Eagles started the game off hot, driving to the basket and getting to the foul line. Through the first five minutes of the game, BC looked to be in control of this game. Midway through the first half they had built up an eight point lead. But as often is the case, they hit a cold streak, and the Red Storm led by Julian Champagnie (29 points) started to take control of the game. Boston College looked sloppy on both offense and defense, as St. John’s found easy buckets while BC lost any sort of rhythm with their offense turning the ball over too

St. John’s University taps ex-Providence head as new president

St. John’s University tapped the Rev. Brian Shanley — the former long-time head of Providence College — to lead the New York Catholic institution amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“I have long admired St. John’s commitment to the founding mission set forth by the Vincentian community to provide a Catholic education for first-generation students in a diverse and inclusive environment. I look forward to leading our community to remain committed to that mission amidst the unique challenges of the current times,” Shanley said.

Shanley, 62, a member of the Dominican order, will take over Feb. 1 for the beginning of the spring semester.

Like other colleges, St. John’s — the nation’s second largest Catholic University with 20,000 students and its main campus located in Queens — is

Suspect captured after daylong manhunt near St. John’s University

COLLEGEVILLE, Minn. – A suspect was in custody Thursday night after a daylong manhunt that forced a lockdown at St. John’s University and involved 16 law enforcement agencies.

According to the Minnesota State Patrol, the 29-year-old suspect was arrested without incident around 6:30 p.m. Thursday near Lake Sagatagan on the St. John’s campus.

Suspect In Minnesota State Trooper Assault Captured On St. John’s University Campus

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Stearns County Sheriff’s office says the suspect in an assault on a Minnesota State Patrol trooper has been captured Thursday evening on the campus of Saint John’s University in Collegeville.

The university was on lockdown for almost 10 hours as law enforcement from more than a dozen agencies searched for the man.

The state patrol says the suspect was stopped for drunk driving just after 9 a.m., but fled after punching a trooper. The suspect then led police on a chase along Intestate 94, which ended after officers used stop sticks to blow out the suspect’s tires. The suspect got out of the car and ran off.

One of the officers in the pursuit reported that during the chase, the suspect reached out of his vehicle and appeared to have something black in his hand, possibly a gun.
