Marquette holds off St. John's 101-93 in Big East Tournament

NEW YORK (AP) After building a large lead against a struggling team, Marquette narrowly avoided a short stay at the Big East Tournament.

Henry Ellenson had 27 points and 14 rebounds, Jajuan Johnson scored 23 points off the bench and Marquette held off a furious rally by feisty St. John's for a 101-93 victory in the first round Wednesday night.

Freshman guard Haanif Cheatham added 19 points for the seventh-seeded Golden Eagles (20-12). They advanced to play fifth-ranked and second-seeded Xavier in the quarterfinals Thursday night.
