Ex-St. John’s guard Dylan Addae-Wusu torches old team in Seton Hall’s blowout win
Dylan Addae-Wusu insisted it was just another game.
No extra motivation.
No desire to show St. Johns new coaching staff that it should have kept him.
His performance said otherwise.
The former Johnnies guard torched his old team, helping Seton Hall cruise past St. Johns, 80-65, at Prudential Center on Tuesday night.
He came out and played well, Pirates coach Shaheen Holloway said. He was ready, and I thought it was a carryover. I thought he had a good game at Butler, and I think he came in and kind of set the tone, got his hands on a lot of balls, scoring, driving to the basket, hitting 3s. Im happy for him, but like I said, weve got a lot of work to be done.
Addae-Wusu had 16 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, playing a major role in the one-sided victory.

Addae-Wusu hasnt scored much this year his 8.4 points per game average is his lowest since his freshman year but he has come on of late offensively, reaching double figures in three of his last six games.
He downplayed the opponent, although he spent the first three years of his career at St. Johns.

Ironically, two of his best games have come against familiar faces.
On Saturday in a win over Butler, Addae-Wusu had 14 points against close friend and former St. Johns teammate Posh Alexander.

Picked to finish ninth in the league, they are all alone atop the standings.
With a win over No. 18 Creighton on Saturday in Newark, Seton Hall (13-5, 6-1) will likely be ranked in the Associated Press Top-25 poll on Monday for the first time in the Holloway era.
Were still gonna be counted as the underdogs because they didnt believe we could be here, said guard Al-Amir Dawes, who scored a game-high 21 points.
We just knew what we could do. We still want to be the underdogs, we still want to play with that chip on our shoulder.
