 NEW YORK (AP) - The unpredictable path of Gustav, the storm that has killed dozens, forced St. John's officials to cancel the basketball team's Labor Day weekend trip to Cancun, Mexico.
The school said Thursday the five-day trip that would have featured two games against international teams will not be rescheduled, but the program will consider options for international travel before the 2009-10 season.
``We were looking forward to the trip to Cancun, but with the severe weather in the area we decided it best to keep our team and student-athletes out of potential harm's way,'' St. John's coach Norm Roberts said. ``We are disappointed, but it is the right thing to do, and we were able to get a few great days of practice in and get the freshmen on the court for one day as well. We're all really looking forward for the 2008-09 season, and will get a chance to travel internationally before next year begins.''
According to NCAA rules, the Red Storm were granted 10 days of team practice before foreign travel, but they will have to cancel the remaining sessions. Freshmen Quincy Roberts and TyShwan Edmondson practiced for the first time with their teammates Wednesday, the day the fall semester officially began.
It would have been St. John's first international trip since Hall of Fame coach Lou Carnesecca took the then-Redmen to Spain in 1991.
