NEW YORK (AP) D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera matched his career high with 33 points and Georgetown ran away from St. John's for a 93-73 victory Wednesday night, the school-record eighth straight loss for the Red Storm.
Reggie Cameron added a career-high 15 points for the Hoyas (11-6, 4-1 Big East), who won for the fifth time in six games and posted their season-high point total.
Ron Mvouika had 15 points - all in the second half - for the Red Storm (7-11, 0-5), who are on the worst losing streak in the basketball program's 109-year history.
The Hoyas shot 51.7 percent (15 of 29) from the field in taking a 45-28 halftime lead. The Red Storm could never get any kind of shooting going, hitting 28.6 percent in the first half (8 of 28).
