OMAHA, Neb. — The Red Storm’s road struggles continued.
Khyri Thomas nearly had a triple-double, Marcus Foster had 18 points and Creighton beat St. John’s 82-68 Tuesday night.
Thomas scored 14 and tied career highs with 12 rebounds and seven assists, Isaiah Zierden had 12 points and Justin Patton added eight with nine rebounds.
“We have a young team so we get defeated quick,” coach Chris Mullin said. “If a shot doesn’t go in or a guy feels someone missed him, [they get down]. I thought tonight was about as much about our body language, our energy as much as anything else.”
Shamorie Ponds scored 16 for St. John’s (13-17, 7-10). The Red Storm, who are 4-12 on the road, made just 6-of-25 from 3-point range and shot 47 percent (8-of-17) from the free-throw line. Creighton hit 18-of-22 foul shots.
