Yeah, there was always a lot of unwarranted/foolish trash talking in big Big East games: famously when Gary McLain turned the ball over against the GTown press on the first possession of the NCAA Title game, the Hoyas PG Michael Jackson screamed at him, 'You scared little punk!'

Gary played 40 minutes, made every shot from the field, and had a grand total of Zero more turnovers.

That GTown press was a thing of beauty, though.

Tanier also mentions what people forget, the 1981 Nova team was ranked #1 during the season. The '85 team was never going to be ranked ahead of the Johnnies and Hoyas with Mullin and Ewing.
In fact, SJU owned Nova that season, it was just a bad matchup for the 'Cats with Wennington inside, Berry slashing, and Mullin bombing away from half-court.
