St. John's uses late burst to break away from DePaul 86-78

NEW YORK (AP) - A D'Angelo Harrison pull-up 3-pointer off the fast break started a 12-3 run late in the game as St. John's broke away from DePaul 86-78 on Wednesday night.

Harrison finished with a season-high 33 points, shooting 10 of 14 from the field, including 6 of 8 3-pointers, and 7 of 7 at the foul line to go with 10 rebounds.

Phil Greene added 18 points and Sir'Dominic Pointer and Rysheed Jordan scored 15 apiece for St. John's (16-8, 5-6 Big East).

Jamee Crockett broke a 4½-minute scoring drought for DePaul (12-14, 6-7) with a fast-break layup at 2:23 left. The Blue Demons went to full-court pressure and forced a couple of turnovers to score six unanswered points, closing to 78-73. The rally ended when Pointer leapt to swat away Tommy Hamilton's dunk attempt.

Hamilton and Billy Garrett scored 18 each for DePaul.

Jordan hit a pair of free throws and Harrison dunked as the Red Storm reasserted control.
