Last night I went to St. John's as they played host to DeMatha in a big time WCAC showdown. St. John's got off to a hot start and took a 4 point lead into halftime and ultimately looked like they were going to come away with a win. However, it was Earl Timberlake who saved the day for the Stags helping DeMatha win by a final score of 68-62. Below are five takeaways from the game.

Earl Timberlake Saves The Day For DeMatha

After being held to only three points in the first half, the Miami commit turned it on when it mattered to lead DeMatha to a victory on Thursday night. Timberlake took over the game in the 4th quarter by bullying his way to the rim where he either connected on a layup or went to the free throw line. Defensively, he picked it up too and and got two big blocks off the backboard to stop transition points for the Cadets late in the 4th quarter. He finished with 24 points on the night and 12 of those points came from the charity stripe.
