St. John's Upsets Georgetown

        Surprised the Red Storm sit atop the Big East standings? With their upset bout over Georgetown at the Garden, St. John's is the first conference team to reach 3-0 this season. The win moves the team to their best Big East start since 1999-2000 when they opened 4-0.

        Georgetown's guards- Austin Freeman, Chris Wright and Jason Clark were a combined 7-of-25 from the floor, including just 2-for-13 from behind the arc and had a total of 20 points. Over 26 below their combined season average. Constantly changing defenses from man to zone to another zone held Georgetown's offense in check to their second lowest point total on the season. On the other end of the floor, the Red Storm turned the ball over just 4 times over the course of the game.

        Dwight Hardy missed a shot with 13 seconds to go, but Justin Brownlee's offensive rebound and put back gave St. John's their first win over a ranked team in nearly two years.

        St. John's has a brutal stretch ahead featuring 7 ranked teams in 7 days with Notre Dame twice, Syracuse, Cincinnati and Duke at home and Louisville and a re-match with Georgetown on the road.
