Baseball

The Red Storm baseball team (15-21, 5-7 in the Big East) dropped a 20 spot on Georgetown, and won two of three against the Hoyas on their home field in Bethesda. Frank Schwindel had a career-high 6 RBI; Zach Lauricella had 4 RBI, and freshman Ryan Hortsman pitched 8 innings of 1-run, 7 strikeout ball, scattering 6 hits.

The Johnnies broke a 5-game losing streak with Saturday's win over Georgetown, and took the series over the Hoyas with the offensive explosion.

The Johnnies have the University of Albany at home in Jack Kaiser on Tuesday, April 16th at 3PM.

Lacrosse

The Red Storm's Lacrosse team has lost two in a row after dropping a 13-11 match to the Villanova Wildcats. Goalkeeper Jeff Lowman - owner of St. John's all-time saves record (587, topping Joe Weingart's 585) - missed the game with the concussion-like symptoms suffered in a loss to Georgetown on April 6th. Harry Burke started his first career game in goal.

It was the first time in two years that the lax team has suffered back-to-back losses. The Johnnies fell to 7-4 and 2-3 in the Big East.

St. John's still falls around #20 in the composite polls, still an excellent squad.

Women's basketball

Two of the Red Storm's stars - Shenneika Smith and Nadirah McKenith - have a chance to be selected in tonight's WNBA draft.

Men's basketball

Jakarr Sampson was named All-Metropolitan Basketball Writers' Association Rookie of the Year. D`Angelo Harrison - who was asked to stay away from the team after some run-ins with the coaching staff - was named to the all-Met First team, and will be around to accept his award this evening.

Sampson won the Big East Rookie of the Year award. Both players are expected to return to campus next fall, joining new freshman Rysheed Jordan, who verbally committed last week, but will sign his paperwork during a ceremony at his school this Wednesday.
