  • St. John’s has named Anton Goff its new athletic director and will introduce him during a press conference on Monday at 4 p.m. in the President’s Room Lounge inside Carnesecca Arena.

    The news was first reported by ZAGSBLOG earlier Sunday on Twitter and on the website.

    Goff is currently the athletic director at the University of Hartford and will make a low-mid-six-figure salary at St. John’s.

    “We are very pleased to welcome Anton Goff to St. John’s University,” said Conrado “Bobby” Gempesaw, Ph.D., President, St. John’s University. “The University community looks forward to collaborating with Anton in his role leading the Department of Athletics, as we collectively work to ensure the success of our student-athletes academically and competitively.”

    SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – Nets rookie Isaiah Whitehead sat courtside for Seton Hall’s season-opener, but two of his former classmates carried the day without him.

    On opening night in Walsh Gymnasium, the Pirates found their answer in a most familiar spot: Angel Delgado and Khadeen Carrington.

    The two juniors, who came to South Orange in the same recruiting class as Whitehead, unloaded on Fairleigh Dickinson – an NCAA tournament team last year – for a combined 49 points in the team’s 91-70 win.

    Seton Hall unveiled two banners, one for winning the Big East Tournament title, and a second for making the NCAA Tournament.

    Carrington scored 27 points, making five shots from downtown, while Delgado muscled his way to 22 points and 14 rebounds.

    With the vacancy left by Whitehead after he jumped to the NBA, attention turned to these two Pirates to step their game up. But for them, it was business as usual.


    NEW YORK — St. John’s has a keeper on its hands.

    Dynamic redshirt freshman Marcus LoVett was as good as advertised in Friday’s season opener, as the point guard dominated on both sides of the ball to lead the Red Storm (1-0) past Bethune-Cookman, 100-53.

    “It was fun playing with my brothers out there,” LoVett said. “It was great. It felt so good to be out there and able to play.”

    Despite ceding the start at point guard to sophomore Malik Ellison, LoVett was the brightest star in a young but impressive backcourt on Friday at Carnesecca Arena.
