NEW YORK (AP) With star guard Shamorie Ponds watching from the sideline for No. 24 St. John's, it was DePaul forward Femi Olujobi who turned Carnesecca Arena into his house for one night.
Olujobi had a season-high 27 points and eight rebounds in a fantastic New York homecoming, and DePaul beat the short-handed Red Storm 79-71 on Saturday for its first win over a ranked team in almost three years.
"A little vendetta," Olujobi said with a wry grin as he received hugs and handshakes from a parade of pals. "I had a little extra energy to come play St. John's."
