The Red Storm (11-7, 5-6 Big East Conference) led by as many as 10 in the second half before Marquette closed in a rush, coming within a point three times in the last 3-1/2 minutes.
Koby McEwen made it 71-70 with a pair of free throws with 1:06 to play, Dawson Garcia hit a jumper with 12 ticks left, getting within 75-73, and Marquette got the ball back on a Champagnie turnover a second later.
The game was a late switch after St. John’s game with visiting UConn was postponed when the Huskies went into modified quarantine for COVID-19 exposure.
Marquette defeated St. John’s 73-71 on Jan. 16.
