4. St. John's upsets No. 6 UConn on the road

Coming into this game, both teams were looking to get going in Big East play with St. John's only having two wins in the first seven games of the conference slate and UConn, which had lost three of its last four games, after getting out to a 14-0 record to start the season.

The teams went into the half tied at 38, but St. John's was fantastic in the second half shooting 55-percent from the field to score a huge 85-74 victory.

Joel Soriano led the way with 19 points and 13 rebounds in a fantastic matchup with Adama Sanogo.

Of course, the Huskies got the last laugh winning the National Championship a few months later but this was a huge upset win at the time for St. John's.
