QUEENS, N.Y. - After helping St. John’s register a series win against Villanova to cap a 3-2 week, Ryan McAuliffe has been named to the BIG EAST Weekly Honor Roll.
McAuliffe tossed a career-high 8.0 innings and allowed just one run to earn the victory in game two as the Red Storm leveled its series against the Wildcats. The righty had two strikeouts and scattered seven hits, while walking none.
