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….

St. John’s redshirt senior Anthony Mason Jr.’s highly-anticipated return to the court is expected to be made on Saturday as St. John’s takes on Louisville.  Mason Jr. has yet to see game action in his redshirt senior season, as his original return was delayed twice.  

Mason Jr. was cleared to practice on Monday, Dec. 27, by orthopedist Answorth Allen, M.D., team doctor to the Red Storm and the New York Knicks of the NBA, when a Cybex computer test on his leg that confirmed the hamstring muscle has returned to full strength. The St. John’s coaching staff determined that Mason Jr. is now game-ready based on his performance level at team practices and his level of fitness.

St. John’s, Mason Jr., hamstrung

December 16, 2009

Mason will make Red Storm lethal

Red Storm redshirt senior Anthony Mason Jr.’s highly-anticipated return to the court for the 2009-10 season will be slightly delayed even further, as head coach Norm Roberts announced on Wednesday that the swingman will miss the next three weeks while continuing to recover from a hamstring injury.

Mason Jr. was examined on Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. An ultrasound scan revealed that the hamstring, which was injured in September and then re-aggravated on Oct. 16, is not yet fully healed.

St. John’s improves to 8-1 with win over Fordham

December 14, 2009

A balanced attack led St. John's to victory

Justin Brownlee came off the bench to score a career-high 14 points and grabbed 14 rebounds, as St. John’s beat city rival Fordham 73-56 on Sunday in the 81st meeting between the two teams.

Paris Horne added 14 points as the Red Storm (8-1) won their second game in a row after suffering their only loss of the season Dec. 5 against Duke.

Brownlee made his statement early and emphatically. After throwing down a power jam and hanging on the rim to avoid injury, Brownlee sprinted back on defense and rejected a dunk attempt by Fordham’s Chris Gaston, who finished with a career-high of 32 points and 14 boards.
