Are you braving the sauna and showing up in Queens this coming November?

did the school announce backrests yet ? :) Let's not get ahead of ourselves but we can definitely start picking road trips



The backrest in our section are knee caps of the guy sitting behind you.

If you’re lucky, the guy behind you spreads his legs and lets you rest in between.



That is one way to get us to move down to the expensive seats.

Welcome Mr. Heron!! Matt's a monster!! If Heron is eligible this season, with the team we have now, any chance that more games get moved to the Garden?

Turns out the 'experts' were right all along- back in '15 they had Heron to SJU. A little early but feels right on time now.

1. Hopefully St. John's retains experienced counsel to guide Mr. Heron's hardship request. Anyone reading this post that has influence with St. John's should suggest to our beloved "Mom & Pop" institution retain Michael Glazier to assist Heron's application. Glazier served seven years on the NCAA staff where, in addition to his primary responsibilities involving infractions, compliance and legislative matters. Now is not the time to have someone with no NCAA contact or experience to assist Mustafa Heron

2. Again today, much like Wednesday when Shamorie Ponds announced he would return to play next season, this is NOT a good day for the handful of posters on this site who seemingly enjoy negative information regarding St. John's basketball.

Why the need to stir the pot? And you are a moderator? Sheez!


Coming from one who enjoys pot stirring, agree with you wholeheartedly on this one; time for all to just feel good. FWIW, I was told by a pretty connected (CBB not SJU) buddy that there will be no need to hire a lawyer. We shall see.


If you are correct and Heron qualifies I will buy you a pale ale at MSG!;)


Well, I’ll take it and thank you but just passing on what I was told. Hopefully, it is good info but it appears the Heron families unfortunate situation is exactly what the waiver rule was put in place for. As always, we shall see.

Great article. Thanks Paultz!
I hope his mom, Thalia, recovers and is able to see her son play often.
An uplifting experience for his mom and Mustapha.
And the kid sounds incredibly well-grounded.
We shall see what happens but this may well be a good happening for all involved.

Sounds like former-Senator Larry "Wide Stance" Craig is a season ticket-holder.

Losing a kid who essentially didn't exist before yesterday is nothing.


Ponds & Heron could possibly be the difference between at top 10 backcourt nationwide and tops in the B.E and a middle of the B.E. backcourt.
With I could see 24 regular season wins and possibly winning the BE tourny, without 20-21 regular season wins and possibly 2 wins in the tourny. When's the last time we won 27 games going into selection sunday, 01.

To me it's what the future/recruits see next year.
I'm not just focused on next year.

Plan is to get the waiver material in ASAP. Confidence Mustapha Heron will be eligible. School may hire a lawyer as well if there is resistance. #subb


Great news, now I get the feeling ncaa won't announce the waiver part until the week or week before the first game.

More importantly, neither is the staff. FWIW, and IMO very little because there are games to be played, we have arguably the highest rated roster ever at SJU so the recruiting complaint is wearing a bit thin. So let’s get musical and Live For Today because Tomorrow Never Comes.
