from www.espn.com:

NEW YORK — Dwight Hardy scored 26 points and St. John’s stunned No. 3 Duke 93-78 on Sunday, capping the Red Storm’s run of eight straight games against ranked teams with their third win.

It wasn’t that St. John’s (12-8) beat the Blue Devils (19-2), it was the way it happened.

The Red Storm, who had lost three straight and five of six, took control early and had a 46-25 lead at halftime. Duke, which came into the game shooting 40 percent from 3-point range, missed its first 10 shots from behind the arc and made one of 13 in the half.

    Coach K ended the long series with Georgetown last year after the Hoyas beat them soundly. Wonder if he will do that again to St. John’s.

    Still their easy schedule, which included no road non-conference games early in the year, is hurting his team. Playing a quality team in a road “hostile” environment toughens your team, not playing Colgate, Bradley and Princeton in front of the geeks and nerds at the glourified high school gym.
