Default 2011-12 St. John's basketball to be an experiment in youth

ESPN reports:

It's not often you see a hoops program graduate 10 -- yes, 10 -- seniors in one season. Same goes for a team with a recruiting class that features nearly as much quantity (eight signed players) as quality (the No. 3-ranked class in the country, according to ESPN's recruiting analysts). And, for that matter, it's not often you see a team that returns just one upperclassman, especially when that team didn't undergo some sort of forced mass exodus in the wake of some sort of NCAA infractions scandal.

Now here's what's really rare: In 2011-12 one team will be each of those things. That team is the St. John's Red Storm.

Steve Lavin's program was already set to endure some massive turnover this offseason. That turnover became even more pronounced this weekend, when freshman Dwayne Pollee -- one of two returning upperclassmen from last year's team -- announced that he would leave St. John's and continue his career as a transfer at another program. Polee cited a family health issue that caused him to want to move closer to his hometown of Los Angeles, according to a release from the school.
