NEW YORK (AP) -- D'Angelo Harrison scored 22 points, Phil Greene added the biggest of St. John's offensive rebounds with 6.5 seconds to play and the Red Storm snapped a four-game losing streak with a 66-63 victory over UCLA on Saturday at Madison Square Garden. Greene, a 6-foot-2 guard, found his way through underneath and tipped in a missed 3 by Harrison that was taken as the shot clock ran out. The offensive rebound was the first of the game for Greene and the 19th for St. John's (11-16). It gave the Red Storm a 66-62 lead. Jermine Anderson made one of two free throws for UCLA (15-12) with 4.7 seconds left. Moe Harkless of St. John's missed the front of a 1-and-1 with 3 seconds left but the ball bounced around for a second or two and the Bruins didn't get off a good shot to tie at the buzzer. Last season's matchup in this game was Steve Lavin of St. John's against his former school and UCLA prevailed 66-59. Lavin, who is recovering from prostate cancer surgery on Oct. 6, watched the game from a suite high above the court and did an in-game interview with CBS. Sir'Dominic Pointer had 13 points and seven rebounds and Harkless had 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Red Storm. Tyler Lamb had 18 points and David Wear and Joshua Smith both had 13 points for the Bruins. Travis Wear had 11 points and 13 rebounds for UCLA, which outrebounded St. John's 40-39 overall but saw the Red Storm finish with a 26-15 advantage in second-chance points. Pointer's dunk with 13:16 left gave the Red Storm the lead for good at 47-45. The Bruins got within one point twice, the last at 54-53 on a rebound basket by Travis Wear. Wear's rebound basket with 43 seconds left brought the Bruins to 64-62. The Red Storm ran the shot clock down and Harrison took the 3 that Greene tipped in. Lavin coached UCLA for seven seasons and went to the NCAA tournament in all but the last year. He took over at St. John's last season and led the Red Storm to their first NCAA tournament appearance since 2002. He has coached four games this season but hasn't been on the bench Nov. 18 as per doctors' orders. He has been on modified duty, handling recruiting and alumni duties.
