...For instance, when Metta World Peace is playing a "gregarious and overtly sexual vampire elder" named Gossamer in an independent "scripted spoof series" called Real Vampire Housewives, I really would like to know about it.

Best individual match-up (that we know we’ll see): Andrew Lawrence (College of Charleston) vs. D’Angelo Harrison (St. John’s) Lawrence is the floor general for the Cougars, and his experience this summer with Great Britain’s national team should serve Lawrence well once he returns to the States. Lawrence averaged 13.0 points and 5.5 assists per game for the Cougars last season, and he’ll be a key contributor in Doug Wojcik’s first season as head coach. As for Harrison, he was right there with first round draft pick Maurice Harkless in what was a tough 2011-12 season for the undermanned Red Storm. Harrison averaged 17.0 points per game, and a large recruiting class should help him shoulder the load down the line. But they’re young, meaning that early on Harrison may still have to do the heavy lifting. It will be tough to pick a winner in the Charleston Classic | CollegeBasketballTalk

JE: Some of Mike Dunlap's biggest strengths were as a tactician and a player developer. How do you think Coach [Frank] Allocco will do in those areas? JM: I don't think I've ever met a man who works harder than him. He doesn't sleep, I swear. He's always up watching film, trying to figure out how to put players in a position to succeed. I think he'll bring that to the table. ... I know at De La Salle he has developed quite a program, and to be honest we didn't have the most talented team any year. We beat teams we had no business being in the same gym with. That came from developing players who came in and worked hard. That was his big thing was we were going to outwork everybody. We were going to beat you through playing harder and being more skilled than you. He had players who had no business being on the court with these big-time D-I guys and he kicked their butts up and down the floor.

Having already locked up a strong recruiting class for 2012, Lavin is apparently not done. St. John’s this week is hosting Christian Jones, a 6-foot-8 2012 power forward from Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academies who played for their post-graduate team last year.

Even though he was in Cali, Lavin has one more scholly to use, and a big man visiting: On Draft Day, Lavin Is Still Recruiting

"We'll control the things we can control. That was our approach in the Big East tournament and at the regional. We're not going to change. We'll try to play our game and play our style." That approach hasn't produced numbers that will overwhelm any opponent. The Red Storm rank 85th nationally in hitting, 78th in ERA and 209th in fielding. St. John's does rank in the top 50 in stolen bases (92, 20th), runs (390, 25th), walks (259, 30th), strikeouts per nine innings (7.6, 43rd) and hits (595, 46th). "We have guys that know their roles," Blankmeyer said. "We are who we are. We're going to Arizona and we'll go about our business. If that's not good enough, well, then that's not good enough." If it is, though, the Red Storm would find themselves finishing their season in Omaha for the first time since 1980 when future major league All-Stars Frank Viola and John Franco were pitching for St. John's.

KN: Looking back on your first year at St. John's: what are the things that you did well and what are the areas of your game that you need to improve on? Moe Harkless: I think I need to improve my shooting. I didn't really shoot the ball well. Ballhandling, as well. Those are the things that I've been working on mostly: getting my shot to drop more and working on my ball handling, getting stronger, faster.

And that’s also why, despite 20 years of harassment from the Northeast media, the basketball schools are better off sticking with the football side than splintering off into a Catholic league. Mike Tranghese, who helped create the Big East in 1979 and served as commissioner from 1990-2009, told The New York Times earlier this week that those schools should "take a real hard look" at breaking away. But Tranghese comes from a different time when college basketball could stand on its own in the national landscape. It simply does not anymore. Whatever the Big East gets from its television deal will be driven by the football side, while the total value of the deal will be enhanced by having the likes of Villanova and Georgetown in its basketball inventory. In the end, though, basketball is really just cheap filler programming to tack onto a football deal. That’s why good basketball leagues that don’t offer football like the Atlantic 10 and West Coast Conference have miniscule television contracts. ESPN and other networks simply don’t value basketball enough to make it worthwhile for the Catholic schools to go it alone — even if Providence playing Houston doesn’t make a lot of sense on the surface.

Emphatic dunks, feathery 3-point shots, impressive moves around the hoop -- Jermaine Lawrence showed his entire arsenal Saturday afternoon. Flanked by some of the East Coast's top juniors and sophomores, the ever-improving 6-foot-10 former Cardozo swingman continued his steady climb. Lawrence poured in 27 points to take home MVP honors in the second annual Mary Kline Classic underclassmen all-star game, a showcase to raise money for cancer research, at Pennington HS in New Jersey.

Lawrence's meteoric rise continues with Mary Kline Classic MVP
