So, while it is technically true that the conference's name and changes to it will be a part of this review, the conference name is unlikely to change in the re-branding effort. I've been assured that the conference, and new commissioner Mike Aresco in particular, appreciate the value of the Big East name and its name recognition for events like the annual Big East Tournament in Madison Square Garden. Don't expect the Big East name to be going anywhere any time soon.

Rothstein: 20 Under-The-Radar 2012-13 Freshmen

+

Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports and WFAN says St. John's freshman forward Christian Jones will be one of the nation's top 20 under-the-rader freshmen in 2012-13. We haven't heard all too much about Jones since he committed to the Red Storm in July, but the experts seem to think he will play a significant role off the bench this year. "Burly forward isn’t the most highly touted member of the Red Storm’s freshmen class — but that doesn’t mean he isn’t going to be valuable. The 6-7 Jones has a nice blend of strength and skill that should allow him to effect the game in a multitude of ways while potentially serving as Steve Lavin’s top front court reserve."

The Big East will "very likely" add another member to the conference within the next year, commissioner Mike Aresco told The Chris Vernon Show on Monday... Among the potential candidates to latch onto the conference, BYU and Air Force have been the most heavily rumored to also join by 2015. With two more members, Big East football membership would expand to 14 teams, making it the largest conference in FBS division football.

St. John's wing Amir Garrett pitched 3 innings in final outing for Billings; struck out 3 while giving up 1 hit, 1 walk. Look out for more on Garrett's potential in the next few days on Rumble in the Garden. "I would have liked to thrown more, but (the Reds) are working me along slowly," said Garrett, who averaged 7.4 points and 4.0 rebounds in 22 games for the Red Storm last season. "I’m just going along with what they want to do, so it’s all right." Garrett did more than all right on Friday by throwing between 91 and 94 mph and averaging 92. He struck out three. "He’s very raw, but I’ve been very impressed," Mustangs manager Pat Kelly said. "We saw him when he first joined us in Arizona from school and he was way behind on the learning curve. You can see how far he’s come." From the Billings Gazette: Strong start, rough finish

- Rider is still awaiting word on a waiver for St. John’s transfer Nurideen Lindsey. The Broncs are hopeful that Lindsey, who played nine games last season for the Red Storm will be able to play for the full duration of next season rather than just the second semester. The talented combo guard transferred to the southern New Jersey school last December to be closer to his native Philadelphia and has a viable case to be cleared due to a difficult family situation. With waivers being handed out left and right for kids transferring back to their home areas, Lindsey has a more than reasonable chance of getting the benefit of the doubt. During his nine game stint at St. John’s last season, Lindsey averaged 12.4 points, 4.9 rebounds, and 2.8 assists per game.
