NEW YORK (AP) Koby McEwen made a layup with 27 seconds remaining and Theo John had a big block in the closing seconds to lead Marquette to a 73-71 win over St. John's on Saturday.
After McEwen's drive down the left side of the lane, John swatted Vince Cole's drive. The Red Storm got the ball back but a desperation 3 at the buzzer was off the mark.
D.J. Carton posted 14 points to lead the Golden Eagles (8-6, 4-4 Big East Conference). Greg Elliott and Justin Lewis added 13 points with Lewis grabbing and seven rebounds. Dawson Garcia had 11 points.
