St. John’s Red Storm
LJ Figueroa and Mustapha Heron will be wearing the Red Storm jersey for another year. The two were a scoring tandem for St. John’s and another year under their belt will further improve their chemistry together. NBA Hall of Famer Chris Mullin has resigned from the team and the steering wheel of St. John’s will be given to Mike Anderson. Having an impressive coaching record in UAB, Missouri, and Arkansas, Anderson is expected to shake up the team’s system. A huge problem for the Red Storm is going to be their depth with not much to offer outside from their two scorers. Two freshmen and five transferees are coming into the team.
Players to Watch Mustafa Heron (18.4 PPG, 6.1 RPG, and 1.4 APG), LJ Figueroa (17.9 PPG, 8.4 RPG and 1.8 3 PM).
