St. John's advances with controversial ending

Madison Square Garden has been a special court for St. John's in its return to national prominence.

The latest victory there for the Red Storm — 65-63 over Rutgers in the second round of the Big East tournament on Wednesday — was achieving legendary status within minutes of the game ending.

It wasn't great plays by St. John's that will make this a memorable game. Rather it was two turnovers that weren't called, and this wasn't just the losing team complaining about a tough loss.

Big East Commissioner John Marinatto issued a statement about 40 minutes after the game ended admitting there were two errors made by the veteran officiating crew.
