Junior guard Malik Stith has withdrawn from the St. John's basketball team, citing personal reasons. Red Storm coach Steve Lavin announced Wednesday that Stith, the only returnee from last season's team, will remain a part of the program in some capacity and will continue to make progress toward earning his degree in sport management. The 5-foot-11 Stith played in all 23 games, starting five, and averaged 2.6 points in 14.6 minutes. Stith's departure leaves the Red Storm (10-13, 4-7 Big East) with a six-man rotation and all are in their first season at the school. He is the second player to leave the program this season. Sophomore guard and leading scorer Nurideen Lindsey transferred at the end of last semester. Lindsey has enrolled at Rider.
