NEW YORK -- St. John's leading scorer D'Angelo Harrison might not play Tuesday night when the Red Storm face DePaul.

Harrison suffered a "mild" concussion in the team's 74-67 loss to Villanova on Saturday, coach Steve Lavin said Monday.

Harrison did not practice Monday. He will travel with the team to Chicago and be a game-day decision.

Despite taking a blow to the face on defense in the first half against Villanova, Harrison stayed in and finished with a game-high 22 points. Nevertheless, St. John's failed in its upset bid against the No. 8-ranked team in the country.

Losing Harrison would be huge. The 6-foot-4 junior guard is averaging 18.7 points per game, ranking him fourth in the Big East. St. John's has only one other player averaging in double figures (Jakarr Sampson, 11.9).

The Red Storm (9-6, 0-3 Big East) have lost three in a row to open conference play for the first time since the 2009-10 season. DePaul (9-8, 1-3) is coming off a double-overtime win at Butler last Thursday.
