St. John's dropped Tuesday's game against the No. 8 Villanova Wildcats 79-59 at Madison Square Garden.
After the game, head coach Mike Anderson and guard Rasheem Dunn reacted to the 20-point loss, saying that the Red Storm simply didn't play up to their own expectations.
"One of the things that we always talk about is just trying to be consistent in how we play, and let's give Villanova some credit. They came out knocking some shots," said Anderson. "We got off to a pretty good start, and then of course I thought they settled it.
"Their experience, I think, showed."
