NORTH BETHESDA, MD -- St. John's defeated Georgetown Prep 84-59 at the annual Shepherd Foundation Hoops Classic. Dejean Desire did not suit up for Prep, and they definitely missed his presence. Here we recap this contest with five takeaways. 

MANZIE ASSERTS HIMSELF

SJC's class of 2020 point guard John "Manzie" Wilson came to play from the jump in this one. One thing that stood out about Wilson was how quickly he would get to the other end after securing a defensive rebound. He gave unrelenting effort on both ends, and stayed aggressive offensively throughout the contest. 

CURFMAN FORTIFIES D1 CASE

Kamdyn Curfman

In a game where points came at a premium for Prep, Kamdyn Curfman was able to provide. Obviously St. John's came into this game with a good plan to slow down the sharpshooting senior, but he found ways to get open both with his movement off the ball and with his ability to create separation off the bounce. Curfman shot well from the perimeter, but also mixed it up, demonstrating that he can finish high off the glass in traffic with an occasional floater.
