08:26 AM ET 06.20 | Coming back from a season that included the absence of Steve Lavin, St. John's, in the eyes of some, will suffer in the wake of Mike Dunlap's departure. [It] was a borderline miracle that St. John's finished up 13-19 with six Big East wins. And that credit goes to Dunlap. He's the guy that took over the reins of the program with Lavin sidelined. He's the guy that made a team that went six deep with five freshmen and a JuCo transfer competitive. He's the guy that created defensive schemes and made in-game adjustments. Tony Chiles, Rico Hines and Moe Hicks are excellent recruiters. Chiles and Hicks have plenty of connections in New York. Lavin is a great recruiter himself. But no where in that group is someone that knows the game as well as Dunlap.

Big East will fold or merge with what is left of the ACC to survive this summer.The summer that was.

And when that happens, Kentucky will then be able to say that they play in the 4th best basketball conference.

Who cares? Outside of the state of KY, basketball is just a mild diversion beween football season and spring practice. Games are a good place to get together and discuss who will win #7 national championship in a row

Dunlap is a terrible coach a nobody a nothing. Arizona booted him out because he was a yes man for Lute and he can't recruit. No NBA player is going to listen to this nothing.
