D'Angelo Harrison suspended by St John's for rest of season

NEW YORK (AP) -- D'Angelo Harrison, the third-leading scorer in the Big East Conference, was suspended Friday by St. John's for the rest of the season.

Red Storm coach Steve Lavin made the announcement without giving a reason for the suspension, which includes postseason games.

Harrison, a sophomore guard from Missouri City, Texas, averaged 17.8 points. He reached the 20-point mark in 13 of 27 games this season with a high of 36 against Villanova. He recently became the 48th player in St. John's history to reach 1,000 points.

"I had a productive meeting with D'Angelo yesterday," Lavin said Friday. "He has a bright future in basketball and I'm optimistic his time away from our team will be of value."

The Red Storm (16-11, 8-7) are ninth in the 15-team Big East. The top eight teams receive a bye into the second round of the conference tournament. They play Saturday at Providence.
