We are not too far away from the St. John’s Red Storm officially beginning the season. In fact, the tip of the season is only a little over a month away. With that being said, that means folks are starting to ramp up their Red Storm related discussions. Whether it involves some form of a ranking piece to decide where the Johnnies will land in the Big East Conference or some general player discussions — college hoops season is nearly in full swing.
As of right now, however, the season is in a check-swing type of mode. Practices are underway, but nothing of real significance will be known about any of the teams until games are actually played. Well, aside from news of suspensions, eligibility issues and the like.
Regardless, you come here for your St. John’s Red Storm news and we are here to drop some knowledge on that shiny dome of yours. Let us take a look at some of the more recent Red Storm stories from around cyberspace (do people still call it that?).
Rumble In The Garden takes a deep look at Rysheed Jordan. Now, we have taken a loot at him as well, but the guys at RITG have a different take on all things Rysheed. Neither take is wrong, although, I think folks do need to temper their expectations for a guy who was only highly sought after his last year in high school. Before that he was thought to be good, but nothing special.
More Dribble For The Cure updates. Why? Because it is important, that is why! Red Storm Sports posted the numbers for the event. With over $55,000 raised, I think it is safe to call the third-annual event a success.
For those of you unaware, The Torch is the St. John’s Student Paper. Editor-In-Chief of The Torch, Kieran Lynch, has a nice piece talking about Max Hooper and his first season with the Red Storm. Definitely worth your time.
That is all she wrote for Tuesday Morning Linkage. We are debating on whether or not to link to other Big East programs to add more informative pieces that will be at your disposal. Until then, however, have an A-1 day.
