The college basketball roundup …
NEW YORK — Justin Brownlee scored 15 points, including the game-changing basket with 10 seconds to play, and St. John’s won its fifth straight, 61-58 over No. 13 Georgetown on Monday night at Madison Square Garden.
Dwight Hardy had 20 points to lead the Red Storm (10-3, 3-0), who are off to their best Big East start since 1999-2000 when they opened 4-0. They came into this game off two conference road wins and came up with another solid effort, especially on the defensive end.
Hollis Thompson had 16 points for the Hoyas (12-3, 1-2), who had won four of their last five and came into this game as the Big East’s best 3-point shooting team but were just 4 of 17, including missing seven of eight in the second half.
No. 10 Kentucky 86, Penn 62
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Brandon Knight scored 22 points and Kentucky shot its way past Penn.
Josh Harrellson added 12 points and 11 rebounds and Darius Miller had 11 points, seven rebounds and six assists as the Wildcats (12-2) used some scorching second-half shooting to subdue the Quakers (5-6).
Kentucky led by just one at the break but hit 12 of its first 13 second-half shots to bust it open. Doron Lamb knocked down a pair of 3-pointers during a game-clinching 15-2 run that gave the Wildcats a 66-45 lead with just over 10 minutes remaining.
No. 16 Texas A&M 66, Nicholls State 55
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — David Loubeau scored 18 points and Khris Middleton added 17 to help Texas A&M to its 10th straight win with a victory over Nicholls State.
The Aggies (13-1) trailed for much of the first half but took a lead they wouldn’t relinquish about eight minutes before the break.
Nicholls State (6-5) cut the lead to three points with about 13 minutes remaining, but Texas A&M used a 9-3 run to push the lead to 57-48.
No. 17 Kansas State 96, Savannah State 61
MANHATTAN, Kan. — Jacob Pullen scored 24 points in his return from a three-game suspension, and No. 17 Kansas State coasted to a victory over Savannah State in the Wildcats’ final tune-up before Big 12 play.
Pullen, a preseason All-American, was 7 of 8 from the field in the first half and hit three 3-pointers, showing little rust after missing three games for receiving impermissible clothing benefits from a local department store.
Kansas State (12-3) led 46-35 at halftime and simply wore down the Tigers (2-15) after that.
No. 18 Michigan State 65, Northwestern 62
EVANSTON, Ill. — Draymond Green scored 15 points, including an offensive rebound basket after a missed free throw with 12 seconds to go, and Michigan State held off a furious finish from Northwestern.
Durrell Summers and Kalin Lucas had 12 points apiece for the Spartans (10-4, 2-0 Big Ten), who beat Northwestern (9-3, 0-2) for the 15th time in the last 16.
Northwestern’s John Shurna, the Big Ten’s leading scorer at 22.2 points who has been bothered by a sore ankle, shot just 1-for-11 and missed four of his five 3-point attempts and finished with 11 points.
