NEW YORK -- Junior forward DeAndre' Bembry helped keep St. Joe's alive for another day in the Atlantic 10 Tournament at Barclays Center.
The former St. Patrick's High School star and NBA Draft prospect finished with 21 points, 6 rebounds and 3 assists as St. Joe's came from 15 down in the second half to defeat George Washington, 86--80, in the quarterfinals. No. 4 St. Joe's (25-7) will meet No. 1 Dayton (25-6) in the first A-10 semifinal on Saturday at 1:30.
"[Bembry] left some plays out there…" St. Joe's coach Phil Martelli said. "But he's a very confident player. During the timeouts, when everyone was overexcited, including assistant coaches, and everybody wants to talk, he was the one that said, 'Yo, one voice here. One voice. Everyone get zeroed in.' He kept them calm, and he competed… It's his leadership that brought us home."
