There are three if you count Lou who is consigliere to Mully! What program can claim 3 HoFers ????????

At St. John's nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

This could have been said about St. John’s 20 plus years ago.




Exactly, which is why Mahoney was able to recruit Felipe & Zendon.


Zendon was one of the best recruiting jobs in the history of this school, because he was all Syracuse, all the time. I was truly shocked we pulled that off.

From what I remember -- and granted, memories are getting a little fuzzier each day -- Zendon's dad played a major role in his opting for us over Syracuse.

Wanting a religious environment may have played a part, although I think Zendon was a seventh day adventist and not Catholic. Plus, anyone named George Hamilton surely knows that Syracuse weather is bad for tanning.

Kind of. There will likely be two games in Maui considered tougher even though they wrap them all together.

Yeah...that's why he had to travel to a CA school for his 10th or 11th attempt at meeting minimum SAT score, because dad was not able to take him locally for testing due to chuch/religion conflict .

Others claim much different reasons for flying across country to take test at this specific location.
