300 Words Or Less: Lavin, St. John’s Spinning On A Road To Nowhere

Observers gushed all year about the Red Storm’s athleticism and experience. Still, they started 0-3 in the Big East, digging an early conference hole for a second straight season. They failed to secure an NCAA bid until recent weeks, largely on the shoulders of one player, Sir’Dominic Pointer.
