Nate Lubick scored a career-high 16 points and Georgetown took advantage of an off-day from the Big East's second-leading scorer in a 68-56 win over St. John's on Saturday afternoon.

Lubick, who entered the game shooting 70 percent (23 of 33) from the field over the previous five games, hit 8 of 10 shots and added 10 rebounds as the Hoyas (16-4, 6-3 Big East) won their fourth straight and sixth in seven games.

The Red Storm, meanwhile, shot just 32 percent (20 of 63) from the field, and leading scorer D'Angelo Harrison, who entered the game second in the conference averaging 19.7 points, was limited to two points and missed all nine of his field goal attempts.

JaKarr Sampson had 18 points and eight rebounds to lead St. John's (14-8, 6-4), which could draw no closer than seven in the second half and had its five-game winning streak snapped.
