NEW YORK - With the lights shining on D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera on Tuesday night at Madison Square Garden, the Hoyas senior went off for a career-high 33 points as Georgetown dominated a young St. John's team, 93-73.
The hope for the future at St. John's is that Chris Mullin and his staff can recruit the kind of star that Smith-Rivera has been at Georgetown.
The 33 points was the most by a player in a Big East game this season as he powered John Thompson III's team to its fifth win in its last six games. The Hoyas host No. 6 Villanova on Saturday.
