300 Words Or Less: St. John’s To Pointer: “To Sir, With Love”

300 Words Or Less: St. John’s To Pointer: “To Sir, With Love”

COLLEGE BASKETBALL

Is anyone in college basketball playing better than St. John’s forward Sir Dominic Pointer?

“He’s unorthodox and extraterrestrial,” said Red Storm coach Steve Lavin, after his senior-laden team toughed out a 58-57 win Monday over Xavier at Madison Square Garden, their fifth victory in six games. Pointer electrified the Garden with 19 points, 9 rebounds, six blocks and four steals.

Few real big men are averaging 17.8 points, 8.6 rebounds and 3.3 blocks over their last 11 games, like Pointer. Forced to play power forward, the senior’s numbers belie his 6-foot-6, 192-pound frame.

Since starting Big East play 1-4, during Pointer’s 11-game outburst the Johnnies are 7-4. At 19-9, 8-7 in the Big East, they appear headed for the NCAA Tournament, the first in four years for Pointer’s class.

In the 1967 movie classic, To Sir, With Love, Sidney Poitier plays Mark Thackary, a new high school teacher in a poor England neighborhood, who stubbornly changes the lives of his rebellious class of seniors by year’s end. Gradually, Thackeray earns respect of his kids, who call him “Sir.”
