"That's a cheap shot by a low-class type player. You don't do that. That's gay on his part. I told him that he was gay, too, for touching me in my private parts." - Francisco Elson about Kevin Garnett.
Paris Horne - Horne graduates alongside Hardy as one of St. John's senior class. By the end of the year, the two were starting together in an amusingly named Hardy/Horne backcourt. (Would have been better if was Harde/Horny. Alas.) Horne isn't any more of a point guard than Hardy, despite them both being point guard size, but the two of them had to suffice.
Horne may have been St. John's best athlete, and was certainly their best perimeter defender. That said, he was no stopper, merely a decent defender. Horne may also have been St. John's best shooter, too. That said, he was no Diebler, merely a decent shooter. Transition finishes, occasional catch-and-shoot play and decent defense is all nice, but it's a tough sell at 6'3.
[...] Despite it all, St John's have been one of the worst three point shooting teams in the nation this season. A few players chip in a couple; Hardy hits a few, as does Brownlee, Kennedy (pre-injury) and 6'3 guard Paris Horne (who is probably the best shooter of the bunch, as well as thriving as an athlete, defender and part-time rebounder). But there is no shooting there. It's an exposable flaw. They also lack a true point guard, unless you count Malik Boothe, the squad's best ball handler and playmaker who nevertheless can't crack 18mpg, due to the presence of Hardy. And for all their upperclassmen, this current crop of St. John's players are not exactly experienced at this. That is not to say that they can't win a game or two, but it does make it harder.
Note: Non-US teams that the player
has played for are, unless stated otherwise, from the top division in
that nation. If a league or division name is expressly stated, it's not
the top division. The only exceptions to this are the rare occasions where
no one league is said to be above the other, such as with the JBL/BJ League
split in Japan.
