St. John’s basketball takeaways against DePaul:
Julian Champagnie Can Carry This Team For Four Days
Wednesday night further proved the greatness of Julian Champagnie.
He took over the game in the first half with 22 points and scored five straight baskets at one point in the half.
It cemented the fact that he can carry this team for four days at The Garden. One is already in the books.
He is that good.
Champagnie was named to the All-Big East First Team for the second consecutive season and is a finalist for the Julius Erving Award, given to the best small forward in the country, as the sophomore forward is averaging 18.8 points, 6.6 rebounds, and 2.0 assists per game.
However, he has struggled against Villanova this year with a combined 21 points on 8-of-27 shooting, although he was injured during the second meeting between the teams.
Three more wins and Julian Champagnie etches his place in St. John’s history forever.
