WATCH: Highlights from St. John’s Red-White scrimmage
St. John's held an intrasquad scrimmage on Saturday afternoon at Carnesecca Arena, with graduate transfer Durand Johnson leading the way for the winning team with 32 points.
The White team — Johnson, Federico Mussini, Kassoum Yakwe, Darien Williams, Felix Balamou and Tariq Owens — pulled off an 84-72 victory over the Red team — Amar Alibegovic, Marcus LoVett, Ron Mvouika, Malik Ellison, Christian Jones and Yankuba Sima.
Johnson's game-high came off 11-of-17 from the field, including five 3-pointers. LoVett, the freshman point guard led the Red team with 22 points and eight assists.
“Overall, I thought it was a good workout,” St. John's head coach Chris Mullin said following the scrimmage. “Fatigue was a factor today because we only had a sub or two on each side, but our team has been consistent in delivering a good effort.”
St. John's, picked to finish last in the Big East, begins the season on Nov. 13 with a home-opener against Wagner.
