NY Post's Steve Serby on the transition from Coach Norm Roberts to Steve Lavin, starting with the scene after last year's NIT loss to Memphis: This was the night when it felt that hope had died, that this crazy dream they all had to bring St. John’s basketball back had been shattered. The Red Storm had just been knocked out of the NIT by Memphis, in Memphis, and into a quiet locker room walked Norm Roberts, who had recruited all of them. "Coach Roberts walks in, and he has a look on his face that we’ve never seen before," Justin Burrell recalled. "He comes in the locker room and is talking to us and he tells us, ‘Guys, I don’t think I’ll be here next year.’ And as he says it, he starts to cry. I’m looking around at our coaching staff, and everybody has a sad look on their face. And then he’s telling us, unfortunately he [doesn’t] think he’ll be here next year. And we all bust out crying.
