St. John’s University honored two fallen heroes at their basketball game Tuesday night. 

Dominique Luzuriaga received a standing ovation as the Queens Catholic university team honored NYPD heroes Jason Rivera and Wilbert Mora during their game at Madison Square Garden.

The two were fatally shot during a domestic call in Harlem Jan. 21. Officer Rivera was a big basketball fan. He was not only a four year member of his high school’s team but he later became the student manager.
