WATCH: Seton Hall Hands St. John's First Loss on Game-Winning Buzzer Beater

Shavar Reynolds Jr. lifted Seton Hall over St. John's in a Saturday night thriller.

Another school fell from the ranks of the unbeaten Saturday night when Seton Hall beat St. John's in dramatic fashion. 

Seton Hall claimed a 76–74 win on Shavar Reynolds Jr.'s game-winning buzzer beater. The three-pointer ended St. John's undefeated start, dropping the Red Storm to 12–1 on the season. The Pirates improved to 10–3.

Reynolds finished with just eight points and three rebounds. His effort was compounded by four other Seton Hall players—Myles Powell, Quincy McKnight, Sandro Mamukelashvili and Michael Nzei—who all scored in double-figures.

It's the second time this month the Pirates have used a late-game triple to defeat a notable opponent. On Dec. 8, Myles Cale knocked in a go-ahead trey to give Seton Hall an 84–83 upset win in overtime against No. 9 Kentucky.
