St. John's, under coach Norm Roberts, is coming off a promising season in the crazy competitive Big East, where it earned its first tournament win since 2003. Its core group returns almost intact (97% of scoring and 95% of rebounding), plus its newcomers, including two, freshmen 6-4 left-handed swingman Omari Lawrence and point guard Malik Stith. (As a Syracuse Orange fan, it's good to KTE, know the enemy.)
The Ravens and Gee-Gees host Towson on Aug. 17-18. The Carleton and Ottawa women's teams host the Vermont Catamounts the following week.
