Ward and White traded baskets throughout the first half. Ward dropped in 14 points, while White countered with 13 to keep Coastal trailing just 23-22 at halftime.

Gregg knocked down three threes in the third quarter, that Hurta matched with three of his own, as part of his 13-point third quarter. St. John’s opened a 17-point lead by the end of the third quarter and kept the advantage in double figure the rest of the night.
