NEW YORK -- Omer Yurtseven's layup with 10.2 seconds completed a rally from a 17-point second-half deficit and Georgetown beat St. John's 73-72 on Sunday.
Yurtseven put in a short left-handed hook to get the Hoyas within a point with 50 seconds remaining before the Red Storm's Rasheem Dunn failed to hit the rim on a drive and tip, resulting in a shot-clock violation. After a timeout, Jagan Mosely got the ball inside to Yurtseven for the layup.
Dunn took the inbounds and raced down the side but lost control of the ball and the Hoyas ran out the clock. Dunn's turnover was the 12th for the Red Storm after none in the first half.
Javon Blair made five 3-pointers and led Georgetown (13-9, 3-6 Big East) with a career-high 23 points. Mosely added 16 and Yurtseven 13 points with 15 rebounds.
St. John's led by 17 with 16 minutes remaining before the Hoyas tied it briefly on a Yurtseven dunk with 6 1/2 minutes left. St. John's edged ahead until Yurtseven's winner.
The Hoyas swept the regular-season series from Red Storm, having defeated the Red Storm 87-66 on Jan. 8.
Georgetown is host to Seton Hall on Wednesday. St. John's plays at Creighton on Saturday.
