Standouts: What Did We Learn From PVI vs SJC’s Mid-Season Showdown?

St. John’s College travelled to Fairfax, VA to face Paul VI in their first of at least two conference matches of the season. The Cadets were short handed after a conference ruling determined that transfer Gianni Boone will be ineligible for the remainder of the season and junior Azzi Fudd sat out with tendonitis after a grueling three day stretch. Even without Azzi this is still the back to back defending champions in the building.

The Panthers scored first and never gave up the lead. They lead 13-6 after the first and 26-11 at halftime.  After the break the Cadets seemed to make a slight defensive adjustment finally figuring out something to offset the barrage of backdoor cuts, down screens and pocket passes. They, however, fell victim the the Panthers pressure defense scoring only two points in the third period. In the end Paul VI had to much fire power for St. John’s to handle, coupled with the fact that the Panther’s got third, fourth and sometimes fifth opportunities to score from offensive rebounds.
