NEW YORK (AP) Phil Greene IV scored a game-high 22 points to help St John's hold off Monmouth 64-54 Friday night.

D'Angelo Harrison added 15 and Jakarr Sampson chipped in with 14 for St. John's. Monmouth was led by Justin Robinson's 15 points.

The Red Storm (3-1) did manage to build a 34-28 lead early in the second half after a three-ball by Harrison.

Monmouth (1-3) countered as they mounted a 12-4 spurt to take a 40-38 lead.

St. John's responded with a run that gave it a 50-41 lead with 7:05 to play after a jumper by JaKarr Sampson.

On a night where St. John's looked ripe for an upset, they needed a pair of 3-pointers from Harrison in the final 4:07 and another triple from Greene, the latter coming with just 1:04 to play.

Chris Obekpa finished with nine blocks as St John's had 15 total, tying a school record.
