NEW YORK -- — Greg Williams Jr. scored a career-high 26 points as St. John’s beat Georgetown 94-83 on Sunday night, ending a three-game skid.
Williams shot 4 for 6 from behind the arc. Julian Champagnie, the Big East Conference leading scorer, added 20 points and also hit four 3-pointers. Champagnie added nine rebounds as the Red Storm avenged a three-point loss to the Hoyas a week earlier.
St. John's took control with an 18-5 run over four-plus minutes midway through the second half, building a 76-57 lead. Moore and Alexander scored seven and six points, respectively, during the surge when the Red Storm made seven of 10 shots. The Hoyas, over the same span, were 1-for-9 shooting, 1-for-5 from deep.
The game was the 118th meeting between the two charter Big East members and the first on the Queens campus since the 1980-81 season.
