NEW YORK (AP) - Rysheed Jordan scored a career-high 24 to lead St. John's to an 82-60 win over Georgetown on Sunday night.
D'Angelo Harrison had 24 for the Red Storm, and JaKarr Sampson added 12 to give St. John's their fifth straight win.
The Red Storm (17-9, 7-6 Big East) scored the first 15 points of the game, led by Jordan, who notched the first seven. From there, they were able to maintain the advantage, thanks largely to their hot shooting, 56.3 percent overall.
Georgetown (15-10, 6-7) missed its first six shots, and was held scoreless until Jabril Trawick made a pair of free throws at the 13:43 mark. The Hoyas recovered, and shot 11 for 20 through the rest of the half, but a 10-2 St. John's run over the final 3:02 made it 46-28 at halftime.
D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera led the way for Georgetown with 15, while Trawick had 13.
