    PITTSBURGH (Ticker) -- Kia Wright scored 23 points to lead St. John's to a 76-69 victory over No. 23 Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh was down 60-49 with 8:49 to play and tied the game, 61-61, on a three-point play by Marcedes Walker 2 1/2 minutes later. Angel Tate gave St. John's the lead with a layup, and she added a free throw to make it 64-61 with 5:33 to play. Wright extended the lead to 67-61 just over a minute later with a three-point play and Pitt never got closer than four thereafter. Tate scored 17 points and Monique McLean added 14 for the Red Storm.
