Harrison connected on a 3-pointer to make it 60-50 at the 7:52 mark, and the Red Storm maintained a double-digit lead the rest of the way.

Fieler finished with 11 points and seven boards for the Eagles, who are at Samford on Wednesday.

St. John's hosts South Carolina in the SEC/Big East Challenge on Thursday.
