St. John's Edges St. Bonaventure

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (AP)- Malik Boothe made two free throws with 6.2 seconds left as St. John's beat St. Bonaventure 69-68 on Tuesday.

The Bonnies (1-1) inbounded and got the ball to Michael Davenport, who missed a long 3-pointer at the buzzer.

"I'm excited about this team," said head coach Norm Roberts. "We needed a win like this to be able to take our next step forward and it was great atmosphere tonight."

D.J. Kennedy had 18 points to lead the Red Storm (2-0), while Paris Horne added 15.

Andrew Nicholson, who was 11-for-15 from the floor, led all scorers with 26 points. Two of his points came on free throws that put the Bonnies up with 11.1 seconds remaining.

After Nicholson's free throws, St. John's inbounded the ball to Boothe, who drove the length of the floor and was fouled by Chris Matthews in the lane. He calmly sank both shots.

The Bonnies battled back from a seven-point deficit in the final 3 minutes, but came up short when Davenport's 30-foot shot bounced off the back of the rim.

Sean Evans added nine points, while Justin Brownlee and Dwight Hardy chipped in seven points apiece.

The Red Storm shot 25-for-46 (54.3 percent) from the floor, including 8-for-17 from long range.

St. John's returns to action, hosting Brown at 7 p.m. on Nov. 20.
