NEW YORK (AP) -- D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera matched his career high with 33 points and Georgetown ran away from St. John's for a 93-73 victory Wednesday night, the school-record eighth straight loss for the Red Storm.
Reggie Cameron added a career-high 15 points for the Hoyas (11-6, 4-1 Big East), who won for the fifth time in six games and posted their season-high point total.
Ron Mvouika had 15 points -- all in the second half -- for the Red Storm (7-11, 0-5), who are on the worst losing streak in the basketball program's 109-year history.
The Hoyas shot 51.7 percent (15 of 29) from the field in taking a 45-28 halftime lead. The Red Storm could never get any kind of shooting going, hitting 28.6 percent in the first half (8 of 28). With Smith-Rivera scoring eight straight in one run, the Hoyas led by as many as 27 in a foul-plagued second half.
Smith-Rivera finished 11 of 16 from the field, including 5 of 8 from 3-point range. It was the highest point total this season for any player in the Big East.

Patrick Ewing Jr., the son of former Hoyas star and Naismith Memorial Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing. There are two sons of former Hoyas on the roster: Ryan Williams is the son of All-America Reggie Williams and Trey Mourning is the son of All-America Alonzo Mourning.
