Go ahead and try to predict what St. John's is going to do this season. It won't be easy. And you'll probably be wrong. There was nothing to it in 2004-05. The ball stayed outside with Darryl Hill or went inside to Lamont Hamilton. Period. Rivals used double teams. Junk defenses. Triple teams. More junk.
