1. St. John's earns first NCAA Tournament win since 2014

St. John's would earn an 11-seed in the NCAA Tournament, drawing the Purdue Boilermakers in the First Four and the teams would play an instant March Madness classic.

The Red Storm would take a six point lead into halftime and things looked even more promising when St. John's outscored Purdue 21-15 in the 3rd quarter, opening up a 12-point lead going into the 4th quarter.

However, Purdue would storm back to tie the game but Jayla Everett would sink a floater with 0.3 seconds to go to give the Red Storm a 66-64 win.

Everett's 20 points led St. John's scorers and continued to be the most important piece of the St. John's squad all season.

The Johnnies would lose a heartbreaker in the Round of 64 against No. 6 North Carolina, 61-59.
