WEST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP)—Shenneika Smith recorded a double-double and No. 18 St. John’s women pulled away from Hartford 66-54 Sunday in a nonconference matchup.

After a back-and-forth first half, Hartford (5-1) entered halftime trailing 26-24 before taking a 36-32 second-half lead behind a layup from Nikkia Smith.

St. John’s scored six-straight to go up 38-36 but Nikkia Smith made two free throws to tie the game at 38-all.
