St. John’s is clearly in the “in search of answers” portion of the season. Posh Alexander will start tonight’s game on the bench, and the Red Storm will start Dylan Addae-Wusu, Montez Mathis, David Jones, O’Mar Stanley and Joel Soriano.
No word yet on what prompted this action, but... should starting positions be set in stone, especially when a player is underperforming?
Also: guard Andre Curbelo is reported as out of today’s game for not adhering to team standards, according to Zach Braziller of the NY Post; guard Rafael Pinzon is a game-time decision.
