D'Angelo Harrison, the captain and leading scorer for St. John's has been suspended for the rest of the  regular season and any postseason tournaments, the university announced Friday. Head coach Steve Lavin made the announcement without giving any reason for the suspension. The loss of Harrison pretty much bursts St. John's NCAA bubble chances and leaves a giant hole in their offense.  He led the team in scoring, averaging 17.8 points per game, which is third in the Big East. Harrison, who has already missed games for disciplinary reasons, has tried the patience of the coaching staff all season, said sources. They said his immaturity has become a point of issue. Harrison met with Lavin and is in discussions with his family whether or not to remain with the Red Storm. "I had a productive meeting with D'Angelo yesterday. He has a bright future in basketball and I'm optimistic his time away from our team will be of value," said Lavin. The loss of the 6-3 guard from suburban Houston couldn't come at a worse time for the Johnnies. They are 16-11 overall and 8-7 in the Big East and hanging onto a slim chance of making the NCAA tournament.  The Red Storm face a streaking Providence team before ending the season against nationally-ranked Notre Dame and Marquette. Earlier this season, Harrison — a preseason Big East second-team selection — became a member of St. John's 1,000 point club.
