St. John's wins at Georgetown for 1st time since 2003

WASHINGTON (AP) Shamorie Ponds made six 3-pointers and had 37 points and five assists as St. John's beat Georgetown 97-94 in overtime on Saturday to snap a 13-game losing streak against the Hoyas in the nation's capital.

The Johnnies had lost 13 straight games at Georgetown with its last win on January 18, 2003.

St. John's started overtime on a 7-1 run and Ponds made 1 of 2 free throws with 23 seconds left for a 97-94 lead. Georgetown had two looks at a potential tying 3-pointer but James Akinjo didn't hit the rim and Jahvon Blair's open shot from the wing bounced out.

Georgetown led by five points with 52 seconds left in regulation but Ponds made two free throws with 14 seconds left and LJ Figueroa came up with a steal and sank two free throws to tie it with 11.3 seconds to play.

Justin Simon added 14 points with nine rebounds and six assists for St. John's (14-1, 2-1 Big East).

Jessie Govan had 25 points and 11 rebounds and Josh LeBlanc also had a double-double with 12 points and 12 boards for Georgetown (11-4, 1-2). The Hoyas had five players score in double figures for the first time since last season's home game against St. John's.

It was the 112th series meeting.
