Smith, who moved into ninth place all-time on St. John's (4-1) career points list Wednesday against Iona, scored 21 points and pulled 11 boards for the Red Storm. After a back-and-forth first half, Hartford (5-1) entered halftime trailing 26-24 before taking a 36-32 second-half lead behind a layup from Nikkia Smith. St. John's scored six-straight to go up 38-36 but Nikkia Smith made two free throws to tie the game at 38-all.

Nikkia Smith led Hartford with 16 points off the bench. St. John's has won four straight games after opening the season with a loss to Texas.
