Recap: Georgetown vs. St Johns

Washington, D.C. (SportsNetwork.com) - D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera knocked down 6- of-7 3-pointers en route to a game-high 31 points, as the Georgetown Hoyas cruised to a 77-60 win over the St. John's Red Storm in Big East Conference play from the Verizon Center.

Markel Starks chipped in with 12 points as the Hoyas (10-3, 2-0 Big East) improved to 8-0 at home leading into Wednesday's matchup at Providence, which begins a three-game road trip.

Max Hooper had 13 points off the bench and Sir'Dominic Pointer scored 11 for the Red Storm (9-5, 0-2), who suffered their sixth straight loss in the head- to-head series.

The Hoyas jumped all over St. John's right from the tip, as they raced out to a 26-8 lead and eventually took a 42-16 cushion into the break. Smith-Rivera outscored the Red Storm on his own with 20 first-half points.

After making only 6-of-28 field goals (.214) in the first half, St. John's made a game of it by shooting 56.7 percent (17-of-30) in the second stanza. However, the damage had already been done, and the Hoyas maintained a comfortable margin by sinking 16 free throws over the final 20 minutes.
