St. John's in mix for 2015 guard Brandon Sampson

+

Asked who was working the hardest for Sampson, Jones said, "I’d have to say St. John’s, Arizona, Texas A&M and LSU." Once St. John’s loses D’Angelo Harrison, Jamal Branch, Phil Greene and likely Rysheed Jordan, there will be plenty of available playing time in the backcourt. "I think they have a real chance," Jones said. "One thing that’s important to Brandon is going somewhere where he’s the guy. He’s not really interested in going anywhere where he’s a piece or whatever. He wants to go somewhere where he’s going to have a chance to be the guy. "St. JOhn’s could be one of those situations, as is A&M. And also he wants to go somewhere where he’s going to have a chance to position himself to hopefully make it to the next level."

...Tuesday's home loss to Xavier made this harder than necessary.

ESPN (Joe Lunardi): St. John's Red Storm The Red Storm (18-11, RPI 63, SOS 30) and Providence have each won on the other's court. It could be we see an elimination game between the two at the Big East tournament. Conveniently that would also be a home game for St. John's, but it was Tuesday's home loss to Xavier that made this much harder than necessary. What they need: Same as Providence. The Red Storm need three more wins, regardless of opponent or location.

There is a chance the Red Storm could get center Orlando Sanchez cleared by the NCAA in the coming weeks, The Post has learned. Sanchez, a 6-9, 214-pound rebounder and shot blocker, has been awaiting word on his case, which centers on eligibility because of his age. Because of a difficult family upbringing in the Dominican Republic which included financial hardship, Sanchez, 24, graduated from high school at an advanced age. He received his associate degree from Monroe College but the NCAA needs documentation that he experienced "financial hardship beyond an individual's control" to clear him. The Post has learned that St. John's is in the process of securing important documentation for Sanchez’s case file with the NCAA.

The crux of why the BE basketball schools haven't left - a bad financial idea.

"If they do [form a Catholic league], they risk losing the conference label and then they risk losing the contact with Madison Square Garden for the tournament," the source said. "They don’t want to make a mistake by jumping out early and then not being able to get a pretty good TV deal, even though it’s going to be obviously much less on the basketball side. "That’s why it’s a waiting game because they’re worried about if they did something collectively and tried to reform with others. It all goes around to the brand of the Big East and the Garden."

Murray State's Jackson out for year (possible Charleston Classic opponent)

+

Murray State has suspended sophomore guard Zay Jackson for the season. Jackson was arrested for hitting two people with his car last month in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Despite such an ugly scene, it looked as though Murray State was going to bring Jackson back sometime this season, even though he was suspended indefinitely -- that was until the video of the incident leaked out. Jackson, who averaged 4.9 points last season and was expected to start for Steve Prohm and the Racers this season, pleaded guilty and received a 30-day sentence. He was expected to return to court on Nov. 30, when the judge could alter the plea deal.

Brey wants to play the Big East's Catholic-based institutions in nonconference home-and-home series, especially long-standing rivals Marquette and DePaul. Brey said he wants to add Villanova, St. John's and possibly Georgetown in the rotation of schools the Irish want to play. Brey said he wants to play at least two to three of those five schools every season. "We're not in Philadelphia anymore so we definitely want Villanova, we want to go to New York with St. John's and keep DePaul and Marquette,'' Brey said. "We will be in the DC area with Maryland, but we'd still like to play Georgetown. Villanova, DePaul, Marquette, St. John's and possibly Georgetown are definitely the five I'd like to do.''
