Carrington scores 22; Seton Hall tops St. John’s 81-74 in OT
NEW YORK (AP) Khadeen Carrington scored 22 points, including six in overtime, and Seton Hall defeated St. John’s 81-74 on Saturday at Madison Square Garden.
Angel Delgado’s bucket gave the Pirates (20-9, 9-7 Big East) a 74-72 lead in overtime and Carrington scored six points in the final 1:02 with four free throws followed by a breakaway dunk with five seconds left.
Delgado finished with 14 points and 13 rebounds for his 70th career double-double, the most among active players. Myles Powell scored 18 points but made just 1 of 11 3-point attempts. Ismael Sanogo added 10 points as did freshman Myles Cale, who made his first start in place of leading scorer Desi Rodriguez, who sprained an ankle in the team’s previous game, a win at Providence.
St. John’s Shamorie Ponds made two free throws with 16 seconds left in regulation to tie the game at 70 in regulation with Myles Powell missing a hurried 3-pointer at the buzzer.
Ponds scored 25 points, though he missed all six of his 3-point tries. Marvin Clark II added 19 points and Bashir Ahmed 12 for the Red Storm (14-15, 3-13).
