St. John’s delivers DePaul another Big East blowout

DePaul, St. John's

Jordan Dingle and Daniss Jenkins each made four 3-pointers and finished with 14 points apiece as host St. John’s extended DePaul’s misery with an 85-57 Big East victory Tuesday night in Elmont, N.Y.

Joel Soriano added 11 points and eight rebounds for the Red Storm (14-9, 6-6 Big East), who set season highs for 3-pointers made and attempted (15-of-40) and scored 26 points off 19 DePaul turnovers to get untracked after losing five of the previous six. Chris Ledlum pulled down 10 rebounds as St. John’s owned a 45-28 advantage on the boards, including 19 on the offensive end.

K.T. Raimey had 11 points and Jalen Terry added 10 for the Blue Demons (3-20, 0-12), who shot 38.3 percent while losing their 11th straight since winning 70-58 over Chicago State on Dec. 30. DePaul, which has lost each of its last four by at least 23 points, is 0-24 in Big East regular-season play since Jan. 18, 2023.

St. John’s led 38-29 at halftime, then the Blue Demons missed their first six field-goal attempts out of the break. That extended an 0-for-13 field-goal drought that began in the final five minutes of the first half.

The Red Storm took advantage by scoring 23 of the first 29 points of the half — highlighted by a 13-0 run — to lead 61-35. That included eight points from Jenkins and back-to-back 3s from Brady Dunlap.

DePaul committed eight turnovers in the first seven minutes of the game. Though the Red Storm shot 35.1 percent in the contest’s first 20 minutes, they turned 11 Blue Demons’ turnovers into 18 points. St. John’s went on an early 11-0 run, capped by Dingle’s first 3 of the night, to build a 16-4 lead.

St. John’s posted a 9-1 spurt, highlighted by five points from Sean Conway, to lead 33-17. However, DePaul didn’t lie down and used its own 11-0 surge — featuring back-to-back 3s from Terry and Raimey — to get within 33-28 with 4:51 remaining before halftime.

Dingle ended DePaul’s run with a 3 and St. John’s eventually took a nine-point advantage into the break.
