They return their three best players in leading scorer D’Angelo Harrison, leading rebounder Moe Harkless, and leading assist man Phil Greene. What makes these three so special? They are all freshman. Yup, you heard correctly, the big 3 for St. John’s last season were all freshman. They only finished 13-19, but man oh man do they have a serious upside. Third year Steve Lavin must be pleased with the way the program is going. In addition to the young talent they already have, St. John’s snags a program best three players off of the Rivals Top 150 Board. They grab small forward Jakarr Sampson, guard Darrick Wood, and a true big man in center Christopher Obekpa.
The last time St. John’s made the NCAA Tournament was in 2011, but had not made it before that since the 2002 season under head coach Mike Jarvis. The Red Storm play their home games at the beautiful Carnesecca Arena, and sometimes Madison Square Garden in New York, New York. Carnesecca Arena is named after the great St. John’s coach Lou Carnesecca. Lou coached the Red Storm, or formerly the Johnnies for over twenty seasons. He had a .725 winning percentage and was Big East regular season champion in 1980, 1983, 1985, 1988, and 1992 when he left the job for Brian Mahoney to take over.
