MILWAUKEE (AP) — D’Angelo Harrison scored 20 points and hit a clutch 3 in double overtime, Marquette’s Derrick Wilson missed a jumper with 1 second left and St. John’s held on for a 91-90-win Saturday in the regular-season finale for both teams.

Rysheed Jordan went 1 of 2 at the line to give the Red Storm the lead before Marquette called timeout with 13.9 seconds left. Marquette couldn’t get a clean look for one of its top scorers, so Wilson took the shot that glanced off front of the rim at the buzzer.

St. John’s (20-11, 10-8 Big East) clinched the fifth seed in the league tournament next week.

Todd Mayo finished with 20 points and hit a runner before the buzzer in regulation that tied the game for Marquette (17-14, 9-9).
