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.

    PSU Alum: Wow! To hear you talk PSU is a national power house in basketball. Tell me when was the last time PSU went to a Final Four, won a National Championship, or Conference Championship? You guys may be a power house in football but basketball is a JOKE. Beating 4 ranked teams does not qualify you as a contender in basketball...I'd say it was beginners luck. Thanks for playing.

    ECU coming from behing to beat Houston - GOOD. UNC beating NC State by 20 points - VERY GOOD. Duke getting embarrassed by St Johns on national tv - PRICELESS!!!!

    Dave: Who are you to judge highly respected basketball programs. As I recall Penn State did not have a great year in football and are absolutely dreadful in round ball. PSU will never win an NC in hoops unlike DUKE that has 4 and more to come. By the way, I heard about your Young and the Restless comment and while I'm flattered I don't swing that way.

    "Dave", as a fan of the ACC it saddens me to have to agree. When the SEC and the Big East were on the cutting edge in marketing their products to not only the fans but potential players as well, the ACC, Big 10 and Pac 10 were always playing catch up, just reacting as best they could to bold and innovative moves by the SEC and Big East. The Big 12 was very much like that as well. The Big 10 looks to be getting it together now with the innovative Big 10 network to make sure potential players are familiar with all Big 10 programs and the addition of Nebraska is a big A . Now the Big East dominates basketball, the SEC dominates football and the ACC Commissioner, ACC Presidents and ADs are sitting around scratching their heads and wondering why they let UNC and Duke's fear of losing political power in the conference put them down so low. The SEC is now kicking around the idea of prying Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma and Okla. State away from the Big 12 and the ACC isn't even aware of it.

    The Big East is the best conference in the NCAA; HANDS DOWN! The ACC is an overrated JOKE!

    WITN: you never post stories when Duke wins? Yea, they lose from time to time and I believe it's healthy. I'm glad you guys could enjoy the loss. Thanks for showing your TRUE colors. Get a life, and find some real stories most here suck.
