+ St. John's has officially hired Gene Keady to be an advisor to the St. John's staff. A lot of experience, a coaching tree built on man-to-man defense, and a sounding board for Steve Lavin. Got to love how he's addressing all of the aspects of being a college head coach he was weaker at while at UCLA.
