Johnnies Snap Marquette Win Streak

MILWAUKEE (AP) Dwight Hardy scored 28 points and St. John's rallied in the second half to beat Marquette 80-68 on Tuesday night, snapping an 11-game losing streak in the series.

The Red Storm (16-9, 8-5 Big East) are playing their best basketball at the right time, completing this three-game stretch with three wins in six days after also beating No. 10 Connecticut and Cincinnati.

St. John's D.J. Kennedy scored 15 points, Justin Brownlee added 11 and Justin Burrell added 10 points and 12 rebounds as the Red Storm overcame a seven-point deficit early in the second half.

Jimmy Butler scored 21 points, but the NCAA tournament hopes of Marquette (15-11, 6-7) may be fading because of this 2-5 stretch even though the Golden Eagles play three of their final five at home.
