NEW YORK – Teams that beat Duke have reason to celebrate. Teams that blow Duke out of the building should be able to party all night.

So, how long will the St. John’s players be allowed to celebrate Sunday’s 93-78 victory over No. 3 Duke — a game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated?

“Coach Lav said we had two hours to celebrate and then we have to get ready for Rutgers,” senior forward Justin Burrell said, referring to first-year coach Steve Lavin and the Red Storm’s next opponent on Wednesday.

The Red Storm (12-8) had lost three straight and 5 of 6, but they took control early and had a 46-25 lead at halftime. Duke (19-2), which went into the game shooting 40 percent from 3-point range, missed its first 10 shots from behind the arc and made 1 of 13 in the first half.

Dwight Hardy scored 26 points for St. John’s. Justin Brownlee had 20 points, nine rebounds and six assists, and Paris Horne added 15 points and six assists.
