The ref’s: Duke’s 6th man

April 6, 2010

Last night the country witnessed an incredible national title game, complete with clutch shots, lead changes, runs, and favorable calls towards Duke.  As I woke up this morning and turned on Sportscenter, the first words I heard were of Dick Vitale crying about people hating on the Duke Blue Devils.  For about three minutes, Dukey V rambled about how even though “Duke does everything right,” fans and the media continue to take shots at the program and root against these true “student athletes.” 

I almost threw up in my mouth.  Read the rest of this entry ?


It’s time for Mark Jackson

March 26, 2010

The best candidate remaining

St. John’s is crossing names off like a grocery list, and in my opinion there should be only one item remaining for their head coach.  Mark Jackson has zero college coaching experience but for 18 years was a coach on the court in the NBA and the floor leader of the 1985 St. John’s final four team.  Mark Jackson is a legend in the Redmen community and would bring instant credibility to the locker room.

Fired for being classless


A day after losing to Texas Tech in the first-round of the NIT, Seton Hall fired head coach Bobby Gonzalez Wednesday afternoon.  The pink slip wasn’t given based on the teams play, however, as the Dean noted that “conduct detrimental to the school” was the main reason for the firing.  Read the rest of this entry ?

January 17, 2010

St. John’s took a big bounce to get back into the mix in the conference standings by posting a 67-47 victory over DePaul.

Big Apple Turnover

January 13, 2010

Dwight Hardy forced two key turnovers in the final 10 seconds

NEW YORK — Dwight Hardy knew how much St. John’s needed a win. He and his teammates had another thought on their minds as well — ruin Lance Stephenson‘s homecoming.

Hardy matched his career high with 19 points, including the tying and winning free throws in the final 8.5 seconds, and the Red Storm snapped a three-game losing streak with a 52-50 victory over Cincinnati and its heralded freshman on Wednesday night at Madison Square Garden.

Another one that got away

January 12, 2010

Lance Stephenson was supposed to be the crown jewel of the 2009 recruiting class for St. John’s.  He was destined to light up the city, rejuvenate the Garden, and bring the Red Storm back to national prominence.  Obviously talented, Lance was also outgoing, flamboyant, and confident.  With basically the entire team from last season returning, Lance could take the Johnnies to – dare I say- the NCAA tournament.   

Nevertheless, it was all a dream….
