St. John's beats DePaul 79-74 in OT

By

NEW YORK -- Freshman JaKarr Sampson scored six of his 13 points in overtime and St. John's extended its winning streak to five games with a 79-74 victory over DePaul on Wednesday night at Carnesecca Arena.

D'Angelo Harrison, the Big East's second-leading scorer at 19.8 points, had 17 to lead the Red Storm (14-7, 6-3 Big East), whose winning streak is one game short of how many conference wins they had last season. St. John's has won the last eight games against DePaul.

Brandon Young had 21 points for the Blue Demons (10-10, 1-6), who have lost five straight and seven of eight.

Sampson's rebound basket with 1:49 left in overtime gave the Red Storm the lead for good at 75-74. Young missed a foul-line jumper and, as Sir'Dominic Pointer went in for a layup, Young fouled him hard and a flagrant 1 was called.
