NEW YORK (AP) – St. John’s D’Angelo Harrison scored 21 points, leading the Red Storm to overcome a 15-point deficit for the second straight game, this time going on to a 69-58 victory over Georgia Tech on Saturday in the third-place game of the Barclays Center Classic.

The Red Storm (5-2) used a 24-2 run in the second half to take control and offset Friday night’s 89-82 overtime loss to Penn State.

Harrison was 12 of 13 from the free throw line, where St. John’s enjoyed a big advantage. The Red Storm were 27 of 35, while Georgia Tech was 12 of 14.

Robert Carter Jr. and Trae Golden both had nine points for the Yellow Jackets (5-3), who led 19-4 in the first half and 46-36 with 13:04 to play on a layup by Daniel Miller.

That would be their last field goal for 11:39 as St. John’s went on the big run. Before the drought ended on an offensive rebound by Miller with 1:25 to play, Georgia Tech missed 13 shots from the field, committed eight turnovers and went 4 for 4 from the free throw line.

JaKarr Sampson added 16 points for St. John’s. Chris Obekpa, who leads the nation in blocked shots at 5.8 per game, had six blocks, three points and five rebounds.

Miller had eight points and 12 rebounds for the Yellow Jackets.

Georgia Tech, which lost 77-67 to Mississippi in the semifinals, opened the early lead as the Red Storm had their own drought.

The Yellow Jackets were 5 for 10 from 3-point range in the first half, and finished 6 of 16 on 3-pointers.
