St. John's handled St. Thomas Aquinas yesterday, finishing the exhibition season with two wins and some experimental lineups.
With Chris Obekpa out with an ankle injury - and Felix Balamou as well - the Red Storm had a chance to play a five guard lineup with Sir`Dominic Pointer at center and interchangeable guards. Adonis Delarosa's conditioning also allowed him to see some time on the floor; and while he is a work in progress, his soft touch and ability to take up space is hard to ignore.
And while Amar Alibegovic didn't put much into the box score, hints of his hustle and mean streak were also evident. Walk-ons Myles Stewart and Jay Henderson also saw the floor, looking comfortable in the white and red.
From the Rumble's coverage, we have a photo gallery - including D`Angelo Harrison's rebounding, Steve Lavin teaching throughout the game, Phil Greene's shooting, Rysheed Jordan, Jamal Branch and more.
