New York, NY (Sports Network) - Vander Blue scored the game's final four points, including a driving layup as time expired, as 15th-ranked Marquette outlasted St. John's in a 69-67 overtime thriller in the regular-season finale for both teams.

Blue finished with 16 points and Jamil Wilson added 14 along with eight rebounds for Marquette (23-7, 14-4 Big East), which overcame 19 turnovers and blew a 10-point lead with three minutes left in regulation to enter next week's Big East Tournament on a four-game win streak.

The Golden Eagles had already sewn up one of the four double-byes for the event and will return to MSG for a quarterfinal matchup on Thursday.

Playing without both leading scorer D'Angelo Harrison and starting forward Sir'Dominic Porter due to suspensions, the Red Storm (16-14, 8-10) scored nine straight points to force overtime before ultimately suffering their fourth straight loss and sixth defeat in seven outings.

Phil Greene IV led the St. John's comeback effort with 20 points, with Jakarr Sampson finishing with 17 in the setback.

The Red Storm will next be in action during Wednesday's second round of the Big East Tournament.
