How refreshing it is to feel that the leadership is qualified and committed.

Will be excited to the product that is on the floor this year and beyond

Paultzman wrote: Mike Anderson’s staff is now complete, and it is heavy on experience. The new St. John’s coach made his last assistant coach hire by bringing aboard Steve DeMeo on Thursday, sources told The Post.

DeMeo, a Queens native who attended Cardozo High school, has spent the last six years coaching JUCO power Northwest Florida State and compiling a 170-27 record. Before that, he worked as an assistant coach at Hofstra, Providence and Iona. A Buffalo alum, DeMeo has been an assistant on four NCAA Tournament teams and won a junior college national championship in 2015, along with three Elite Eight appearances. He was also named the JUCO National Coach of the Year in 2016.

He joins another Queens native, Van Macon, and T.J. Cleveland as Anderson’s three assistant coaches. Cleveland, Anderson’s nephew, has coached with him at UAB, Missouri and Arkansas while Macon has plenty of experience as well, having coached at Hofstra, Rutgers and St. Louis.

Macon and DeMeo give Anderson two assistant coaches with local recruiting ties, which he has said was a priority in filling out his staff. Macon was the lead recruiter on three-star wing Julian Champagnie, a Brooklyn native who verbally committed to St. John’s on Wednesday.

I bet I echo the sentiments of many -
Great news. Wonderful developments.
Why since our staff or lack there of was a major, chronic annoying concern, I could not have imagined a better outcome from the
“ Bermuda Triangle “ aka St. Johns basketball (disappearing under mysterious circumstances ) of a mere month ago.
AND it’s only
May 2019.
Imagine what Mike Anderson can accomplish in another May or two.

Could not possibly be happier with the staff CMA has put together!! It is nice to have multiple recruiters now and to start out already landing a local kid in Champagnie bodes very well for our future. I really think we are about to start operating like a real program again!!

With the current AD and the new coaching staff if the various boards will stick to financial and educational matters and leave the basketball matters to the above SJU appears to be in great shape.

Ah c’mon, Enright.
Great sentiment man, but we’re St. John’s hoops fanatics.
Full of spleen and vinegar, what d’ya expect?
Lol.
But you nailed it, I do not recall when we had as solid and experienced a Staff, including the HC, as we do now.
Looking forward to witnessing and cheering how they build their legacy.
To repeat myself and others, this is looking like a great time to be a Johnny Fan.

I'll wait it out before that happens.

Jusf sick of being disappointed.

I can't wait for the summer recruiting season to start to read the increased number of top 100 ranked recruits Coach Mike Anderson and his hard working staff are involved with.

There is no substitution for hard work on the recruiting trail and by every indication Coach Anderson and his staff are hard workers.
