St. John’s basketball Takeaway No. 4 – Greg Williams Jr. is the X-Factor

One of the most important players on the St. John’s roster this season is Greg Williams Jr. and it has shown through four games.

In his four games as a junior, St. John’s has performed as well as Williams Jr.

On opening night against St. Peter’s, the Johnnies needed a miraculous comeback to defeat the Peacocks as Williams Jr. only posted six points on 0-of-5 shooting from the field.

The Red Storm followed up with a convincing victory over La Salle and Williams Jr. responded with 13 points in the victory.

Greg Williams Jr. posted his best game of the season against Boston College with 17 points, three rebounds, and six assists with two steals and a block.

Finally, the Louisiana native played well against BYU, but didn’t have the ball in his hands enough with only six shot attempts, resulting in ten points.

If St. John’s can keep Greg Williams Jr. involved on a consistent basis, the Red Storm should see the production pay off from one of their veteran leaders.
