    OMAHA, Neb. -- Marissa Janning scored 24 points, including a trio of 3-pointers, to lead Creighton to a 65-62 upset win over No. 22 St. John's on Sunday.

    Creighton (17-10, 11-4 Big East) jumped out to an early lead with a 10-0 spurt in the first half and never let it go, taking a 35-23 advantage into the break and then hanging on in the second half as a St. John rally fell short in the final minute.

    Sarah Nelson added 15 points and McKenzie Fujan 13 for the Bluejays, who shot 53 percent from the floor in avenging last month's loss to St. John's (19-7, 12-3).

    Trailing by 20, St. John's rallied to close the gap to single digits in the final minute. Creighton hung on with 5-of-8 shooting from the penalty stripe.

    Aliyyah Handford scored 14 for the Red Storm, which remains in first place atop the Big East standings.
