Ponds, St John's down Nebraska 79-56

NEW YORK (AP) Shamorie Ponds scored 22 points, Justin Simon had 13 points and 12 rebounds, and St. John's pulled away early from Nebraska for a 79-56 victory on Thursday night.

Bashir Ahmed scored 15 points and Marcus LoVett added 13 with three assists for St. John's (3-0), which outrebounded Nebraska 50-39 and outscored them 44-16 in the paint. Ponds had seven rebounds and five assists, and scored 20-plus for the second straight game. Simon added four steals in recording his second straight double-double.

"This was our biggest test to date on this early season, and it was definitely going to pose some huge challenge - particularly on things that we haven't done well in game situations, which are rebounding and defensive play," St. John's coach Chris Mullin said. "We did a good job on both, but I think the most important thing is that tonight was really the first time that I saw our defensive alertness, quickness, and athleticism really showed."
