A capacity crowd of 2,560 packed Sexton Arena to the rafters for Saint John’s Feb. 15 MIAC basketball showdown against archrival St. Thomas. The Tommies won 71-66 after the Johnnies won 87-70 at St. Thomas earlier in the season. Those were the only conference losses for both teams, which shared the MIAC regularseason championship with matching 19-1 league records. It was the ninth time Saint John’s has earned at least a share of the MIAC regular-season title.
