So I’m leaving my house tomorrow at around 9 a.m. for the Summer in the City event at St. John’s. We hear many big-time coaches, including Villanova’s Jay Wright, Tennessee’s Bruce Pearl, Marquette’s Buzz Williams and St. John’s own Norm Robertswill be on hand to check out the talent, including New Y0rk’s own Jayvaughn Pinkston.
From there I’ll take a subway to Madison Square Garden to meet my boy Jay Dahl, who I went to elementary school with and once had us re-pick the kickball teams on the playground because one of our friends was upset and crying over the teams. I’ll never forget how cool and great that was on Jay’s part.
