NEW YORK (AP)--Freshman guard Kemba Walker scored 21 points and senior forward Jeff Adrien added 17 points and 11 rebounds to lead No. 4 Connecticut to a workmanlike 67-55 victory over St. John's on Thursday night.

The win was the fourth straight for the Huskies (15-1, 4-1 Big East) since they lost their conference opener at home to Georgetown.

This was the last of a three-game trip for Connecticut, the ninth time the Huskies have had that long a stretch under coach Jim Calhoun and this was the first time they won all three.

Sophomore guard Paris Horne had a career-high 24 points for the Red Storm (10-6, 1-3), who lost for the fifth time in six games with the lone win over then-No. 7 Notre Dame. This was St. John's third game against a Top Ten team in the last 13 days as they fell 90-67 at No. 1 Pittsburgh on Sunday.
