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.
