From @stjohnsredstorm on Instagram - a new walk-on? Khadim Ndiaye is, I believe, a former Christ the King player who didn't get much time who played a year for D-II Chestnut Hill College in the Philly area. He averaged 8.5 points/ 4.9 total rebounds (half of those offensive) in 21 minutes per game. Long Beach (NY) native Ndiaye made 18 starts. And he stands about 6'5".
A few asked what the DT on the St. John's Red Storm uniforms stands for. It's for recently passed away alum and benefactor Donald Taffner, for whom the Fieldhouse is named. I didn't know this, but he was a television producer who brought both "Three's Company" and "Too Close for Comfort" to the United States. "Comfort" was a favorite show growing up.
