SAN FRANCISCO (AP) De'End Parker scored 21 points and hit a pair of 3-pointers during a decisive second-half run, and San Francisco snapped St. John's four-game winning streak with an 81-65 victory Tuesday night to spoil Steve Lavin's return to his hometown.

Cody Doolin added 18 points and a career-high 14 assists to go with two steals and two blocked shots for the Dons (5-1), who won their fifth in a row since a season-opening loss to Stanford on Nov. 9.

JaKarr Sampson scored 22 points and D'Angelo Harrison had 14 but went 1 for 6 from 3-point range for the cold-shooting Red Storm (6-3), who didn't have a second-half comeback in them this time as has been their winning formula so far.
