St John's loses McPherson to ACL tear
NEW YORK -- St. John's has lost Eugeneia McPherson for the season with a torn ACL in her right knee.

McPherson started all 34 games last season and was the team's third-highest scorer. She's averaging 7.6 points this season.
The Red Storm (4-1) face Boston University on the road Saturday afternoon.
