Groselle was 8 of 9 from the floor to get his third double-double of the season. James Milliken added 19 points and Cole Huff chipped in 13 for Creighton (18-11, 9-7 Big East), which remains in fourth place in the conference standings, two games back of third-place Seton Hall.

The Bluejays shot 60 percent on 35-of-58 shooting, including 8 of 19 from long range, and outrebounded the Red Storm 46-22.

Christian Jones scored 17 points and Yankuba Sima had 13 for St. John’s (8-22, 1-16), which has lost three straight.
