St. John's Uses 23-0 Second Half Run To Top Georgetown

The last time St. John’s and Georgetown got together at Madison Square Garden, it was February 2 and the Hoyas overcame a 17-point lead with 16 minutes to play to pull out a one-point win over the Johnnies.

But Wednesday night, in the return match at the Garden, the Red Storm flipped the script on the Hoyas as they outscored Georgetown, 23-0, over the last 6:31 and rolled to a 75-62 win in the opening round of the BIG EAST Tournament.

It was the third time in the last four seasons the Johnnies have knocked the Hoyas out of the BIG EAST tournament.
