This is good news. Normally the worse case scenario prevails at StJ.

Heron’s problem last year partially was due to lack of coaching. He looked confused and frustrated much of the time. Imho he’s a bit better player than he has shown. Both LJ and he can benefit from some coaching this year.


Everybody on the roster could benefit from some coaching this year
It's about time that they got some

I asked Zach B that very question. There has been no "formal" announcement but Zach seems to think that Heron will be back based upon the fact that he is participating in team workouts and such.

would think LJ coming back would make us a more attractive option, for grad transfer.

Heron never said he was leaving did he?

In case people forgot, LJ was the #4 sit-out transfer on ESPN.com. This will hopefully be a domino towards more good news.

I honestly think a team made up of :
G-Thornton
G-Heron
G-Wright
F-LJ
C/F-Steere

Bench: Greg Williams, Roberts, Caraher, McGriff, Sears, Earlington ... .

Thornton? Have I missed out on someting?
