  • INDIANAPOLIS — Steve Lavin has been on the job at St. John’s less than a week but his arrival appears to already be paying dividends.

    According to sources with knowledge, Lavin will meet with prized shooting guard Doron Lamb of Queens after the Final Four.

    “Doron and his family will be meeting with Steve Lavin after the Final Four,” a source said. “St. John’s is an option.”

    The 6-foot-4 Lamb is a senior at Oak Hill (Va.) Academy ranked No. 3 among shooting guards in the Class of 2010. He has previously listed his top five as Kansas, Kentucky, Arizona, UConn and West Virginia. He plans to announce April 17 at the Jordan Brand Classic at Madison Square Garden.
