Hardy boys Storm past Golden Eagles

[postimg url=”http://static.ready2beat.com/files/images/main/basketball/ha/hardy_boys_storm_past_golden_eagles_020224.jpg”]All St. John’s needs after Tuesday night’s 80-68 Big East road win over Marquette in Milwaukee is to not stumble badly and the Red Storm should go back to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2002.

The Johnnies (16-9, 8-5) spoiled the Golden Eagles’ tribute to former coach Al McGuire by powering past them in the final 10 minutes for their fourth conference road win, fifth victory in six games and first win over Marquette in 11 games dating to 1966.

St. John’s had rallied from a seven-point deficit and held a one-point lead when Justin Brownlee and Malik Boothe led the Johnnies on a 9-0 run to start a 17-5 spurt that gave them the upper hand at 70-57 with 4:41 to play.[link url=http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/college/2011/02/15/2011-02-15_dwight_hardys_28_points_carry_st_johns_to_third_straight_win_an_8068_victory_ove.html]
