St. John's Stuns No. 3 Duke, 93-78

NEW YORK (AP) -- Dwight Hardy scored 26 points and St. John's stunned No. 3 Duke 93-78 on Sunday, capping the Red Storm's run of eight straight games against ranked teams with their third win.

It wasn't that St. John's (12-8) beat the Blue Devils (19-2), it was the way it happened.

The Red Storm, who had lost three straight and five of six, took control early and had a 46-25 lead at halftime. Duke, which came into the game shooting 40 percent from 3-point range, missed its first 10 shots from behind the arc and made one of 13 in the half.

The Blue Devils' overall shooting wasn't a whole lot better as they shot 29.6 percent (8 of 27) in the half -- they entered the game shooting 48.1 percent from the field -- and they were careless with the ball as well, committing 11 turnovers, one off their season average for a game.
