Eugeneia McPherson scored 17 points and Nadirah McKenith added 15 to help St. John’s shock No. 7 Rutgers 62-57 on Tuesday night, the Red Storm’s fifth win in six games.

St. John’s (12-7, 4-2 Big East) was up 52-43 with 2:35 left before holding off a late rally by Khadijah Rushdan and Rutgers.

Rushdan scored eight points and had an assist to get Rutgers within 57-55 with 22 seconds left.

After McPherson hit one of two free throws, Briyona Canty made two from the line to make it a one-point game with 18 seconds to go.

Shenneika Smith converted two free throws at the other end to restore the three-point lead.

April Sykes missed a 3-pointer from the wing with 7.5 seconds left that would have tied the game. McKenith sealed the win with two more free throws.

Rushdan finished with 16 points for Rutgers (15-3, 4-1), which saw its six-game winning streak end.
