St. John's Takes Down Duke
Byline: Associated Press
Dwight Hardy scored 26 points, and St. John's stunned No. 3 Duke 93-78 on Sunday at Madison Square Garden in New York, capping the Red Storm's run of eight straight games against ranked teams with their third win.
It wasn't that St. John's (12-8) beat the Blue Devils (19-2), it was the way it happened.
The Red Storm, which had lost three straight and five of six, took control early and had a 46-25 lead at halftime. Duke, which came into the game shooting 40 percent from 3-point range, missed its first 10 shots from behind the arc and made one of 13 in the half.
The Blue Devils' overall shooting wasn't a whole lot better as they shot 29.6 percent (8 of 27) in the half -- they entered the game shooting 48.1 percent from the field -- and they were careless with the ball as well, committing 11 turnovers, 1 off their season average for a game.
