Come March, the Redmen of St. John's will be going to the Big Dance for the first time in eight years. First year Head Coach Steve Lavin and his seasoned assistants have done a fantastic job with a Senior class that had stalled under Norm Roberts. Just look below at the wins in 2011 over ranked opponents. The team is playing with great momentum and if they can keep this up, a Sweet 16 run is possible. Although we will lose almost the entire team to graduation, the incoming Freshman class is ranked # 3 in the country - we knew Lavin could recruit - but based on Jan and Feb 2011, he (and his assistants) can coach a bit too... great to see a moribund program back on its feet and getting great attention in the media.
