After slow start, No. 8 Gonzaga gets signature win over No. 4 St. John’s

Gonzaga forward Terrance Williams stood at the foul line with a chance to put the game away. The Eagles had rallied from an eight-point deficit in the fourth quarter, and Williams's free throws could give them a three-point lead over No. 4 St. John's with 15 seconds left. 

As both student sections roared, Williams took a deep breath, rolled the ball on the tips of his fingers and let it fly. Both of his shots found the bottom of the net, and the No. 8 Eagles scored a significant 56-53 victory on the road.

"He's been in these moments for the last three years, so we're just telling our guys what we're going to do when we get up three after he makes the free throws," Gonzaga Coach Steve Turner said.
