NEW YORK (AP) - Someone has to sit.
St. John's has 11 letterwinners, including five starters, back from last season and welcomes freshman Rysheed Jordan, one of the most highly regarded high school point guards, to the fold.
And according to coach Steve Lavin, Jordan will play.
''He's the best guard, the most explosive guard I've had in college and that includes Baron Davis,'' Lavin said of his former star at UCLA. ''He has made everybody better by the way he practices. He is going to be a very special player.''
That means somebody's minutes will be cut and all the players say that will be just fine if it means wins and an NCAA tournament bid, something none of the current roster has experienced.
St. John's is coming off an NIT berth, and there is optimism aplenty.
