TheRoundUp 2/10: Did somebody say storm?

Journal Inquirer > St. John’s on Walker’s mind
Last season’s embarrassing 73-51 rout at the hand of St. John’s in the first round of the Big East Tournament still stings Bronx native Kemba Walker. "Last year was painful," the UConn junior guard said Wednesday before practice at Gampel Pavilion. "Nobody wants to go to the Garden and get killed the way we got killed."

"He was always a fast point guard and good penetrator," said Hardy, who has gone head-to-head with his borough rival only in summer league games. "He was able to score in the lane, but his mid-range and outside shooting have improved. As far as myself, my ability to take it to the hole has improved. I'm known as a shooter, so me being able to get to the basket is one of my improvements."
