The largest lead for either team was a 14-point St. John's lead late in the second half.

In the first half, St. John's held West Virginia to just 30 percent shooting, while converting on 50 percent of its shots.

The Mountaineers also had a hard time stopping St. John's in transition, as the Red Storm scored 10 points off fast breaks and dominated in the paint, outscoring the Mountaineers 40-6.
