CHICAGO (AP) Shamorie Ponds continued his remarkable run with 26 points and a career-high 10 assists and St. John's continued its turnaround with a 77-76 win over DePaul on Wednesday night.

Marvin Clark II added a career-high 24 points for St.John's (14-13, 3-11 Big East), which has won four straight - beating Villanova and Duke - since ending an 11-game losing streak.
