St. John’s not only lost its grasp on a double bye in the Big East tournament, it also lost composure in an 84-70 loss to Seton Hall.

Coach Steve Lavin and forward Justin Burrell were ejected in the closing minutes for the 15th-ranked Red Storm. SHU controlled the perimeter, shooting 67 percent from 3, while Syracuse now controls its own destiny, needing only a win over DePaul to secure fourth place in the Big East.
