Things Got Heated Between St. John’s and Georgetown at Big East Tournament! (Video)

St. John's and Georgetown

The Georgetown Hoyas and St. John’s Red Storm may be having down years, but these longtime rivals sure as hell showed up at the Big East Tournament looking for a fight. Not only did the game come down to the final possession, but at one point the benches cleared and coaches on both sides got technicals.

The near-brawl occurred midway through the second half after a hard foul by St. John’s Amar Alibegovic on Georgetown’s L.J. Peak. At first there was just a little pushing and shoving underneath the basket. However, when Red Storm coach and NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin came out to help calm things down, he got an earful from Georgetown coach John Thompson III, and then another from Georgetown assistant Patrick Ewing Jr..

All of a sudden, everybody was pissed, and Mullin was being restrained by his own players so he didn’t go do something stupid.

Take a look:

As longtime Big East fans know, there was a lot of history in that scrum. Mullin is the greatest player St. John’s ever had. When he played, John Thompson Jr. was the Hoyas’ coach, and Patrick Ewing Sr. was their star player. It was one hell of a rivalry.

Fortunately, things didn’t get out of hand. Mullin and Ewing both received technicals, but they patched things up after the game.

“I asked [Patrick] if he was going to beat me up like his father did,” Mullin told ESPN’s Jeff Borzello after the game. “He said ‘No, I love you.’ So I said, ‘OK.’”

Incidentally, St. John’s won 74-73. They now get the pleasure of taking on defending national champ Villanova in the next round.
