The wait is over. It is the midnight before gameday folks. You can feel it in the air, today is going to be a great day for the Red Storm.
Today concludes our “Days Until The Storm” series where we have been breaking down each player on the St. John’s roster throughout the month.
Wearing number 0 this season, Posh Alexander is ready to make a name for himself at the next level.
A Dominant High School Career
Posh Alexander’s high school basketball career was filled with ridiculous highlights. The 6-foot tall point guard can jump out of the gym and throw down windmills like it’s nothing.
Last season, he basically dominated night in and night out on the high school floor with little resistance. Posh was a 4-star recruit and was the 6th ranked prospect in New York. His most impressive high school game came against Word of God Academy where he posted 60 points. Yup you read that right, SIXTY points.
Our Savior Lutheran, where Posh attended high school, competes against some of the top programs across the country. Experience against some of the nations best high school competition has prepared Alexander for the next level. Last season he played against the nation’s number 1 recruit, Jalen Green from Prolific Prep, and gave them a good run for their money. Posh’s game is built perfectly for Mike Anderson’s system and I can’t wait to watch him throw down a dunk like this tonight (hopefully).
Since arriving at St. John’s, Posh has impressed everyone who has watched him play in practice. Fans are anxious to watch the young buck get after it tonight.
The “Red vs. White” scrimmage that was played a little over a week ago left those who watched it in awe of his game. Unfortunately the recording was taken off of YouTube, but the Bronx-born guard put on a show as he always does. Several fans took to twitter with positive reactions.
What to Expect
Several analysts and writers project Posh to get the nod in the starting lineup in game one vs. Saint Peters. For a freshmen, the expectations for Posh are enormous. He will likely be embracing a role that not many first year players take on. Expect Alexander to be in the core group of guys that Mike Anderson relies on this season game in and game out. I’ll be looking for around 25 minutes per night from the rook with room for more or less depending on the flow of the game. We can expect him to bless our eyes with tremendous highlight dunks and defensive plays, and then dazzle us with a lob pass to a big man or shooting a three. He’s truly a “do it all” kind of talent and I cannot wait to watch him go to work.
