    NEW YORK (AP) -- Qa'rraan Calhoun had 21 points to help St. John's snap a 10-game losing streak to Providence with a 77-64 win Sunday in the Red Storm's regular-season finale at Madison Square Garden.

    Anthony Mason added 17 points for the Red Storm (16-14, 7-9 Big East), who had lost their last three games.

    Herbert Hill scored 27 points on 12-of-16 shooting for the Friars (18-11, 8-8). Dwain Williams added 12 points and Sharaud Curry had 10.

    St. John's, which has not played in the conference tournament since 2003, will face Marquette in the opening round Wednesday at Madison Square Garden. Providence faces West Virginia.

    Red Storm center Lamont Hamilton hyper-extended his left knee in a collision with Mason at 6:07 of the first half and did not return. An MRI is scheduled Monday for the team's leading scorer (13.7) and rebounder (6.7), but he is expected to play in the tournament.

    A three-point play by Hill gave the Friars their last lead of the game, 18-17, at 9:22 of the first half.

    St. John's went on a 21-14 run the rest of the half behind Mason's eight points, which included a pair of 3-pointers, for a 38-32 lead at the break.

    Calhoun closed a 15-5 run to start the second half with a 3-pointer, increasing the Red Storms' lead to 53-37 at 14:05. Eugene Lawrence and Mason added 3-pointers in the run.
