NEW YORK — St. John’s basketball team is officially on the road to redemption after a stellar performance in a 74-59 win over Marquette at Madison Square Garden.
Following a dreadful 0-5 start in Big East play, St. John’s (13-9, 3-6) has rebounded nicely to win four of their last five with their only loss coming to a talented Creighton team on a game-winning 3-pointer from their star player, Doug McDermott.
D’Angelo Harrison led the way for the Red Storm with 27 points and six rebounds while teammates JaKarr Sampson and Chris Obekpa made their presences known as they capped a well-rounded performance from the now-streaking St. John’s team. Sampson finished with 10 points and seven rebounds while Obekpa’s seven blocks started several instances of transition offense.
