WASHINGTON, DC -- St. John's did not trail at any point during their 79-67 win over Rock Creek last night. Here we recap this hard-fought contest with five takeaways. 

ISHMAEL LEGGETT TRENDING UP

From opening tip until the final whistle, Ishmael Leggett played with tremendous intensity on both ends of the floor, and this permeated throughout his team. With VCU Assistant Coach JD Byers in the house, Leggett had a solid all around game. He stuck corner threes with regularity, but also consistently finishing strong around the rim in traffic. Leggett scored a game-high 21 points, and has quite clearly become an indispensable player for SJC Head Coach Pat Behan. 

HUNT & FAUNTLEROY IMPRESS IN THEIR RETURN

DeLonnie Hunt

Prior to picking up his three first-half fouls and what looked like an injury to his right leg, DeLonnie Hunt had his way with the SJC defense. Hunt persevered through the fouls and the bum leg to have a productive outing in his return. Guy Fauntleroy also hit some tough shots in this game, and can be proud of his overall effort despite coming up short.
