Steve Lavin Takes a Dump In Pauley Pavilion, Joshua Smith Dominates

Returning to Westwood for the first time as an opposing coach, the Lizard assumes a familiar pose. 

The Bruins led by 11 points with under five minutes to play, but a combination of turnovers and missed free throws shifted momentum to the Red Storm as the lead dropped to three with 32 seconds left in the game. The Bruins had the ball out of bounds with only three seconds remaining on the shot-clock and the most unlikely scenario ensued as the inbounds pass went to Nelson Reeves who smoothly drained a three-pointer before the shot-clock expired.

Nelson's shot left St. John's with a two score deficit with less than 30 seconds to play and that was that.

Not to be lost in the exciting finish was Joshua Smith's performance. Smith was dominating in the first half with 12 points, going 5 of 6 (2-2 free throws) and dunking his first four made shots. Smith finished up with a team-high 19 points and three blocked shots.

Nice win for the Bruins, but they'd better improve breaking the press. The rest of the Pac-10 will surely look to exploit this weakness.

Go Bruins!
