St. John’s has been one of the worst shooting teams in all the nation, the Johnny’s make just 42% of their shots per game. The Storm have scored just 17% of their points this season off of the three point shot. So to help with their poor shooting, St. John’s has begun to scout out Brandon Parga.
Parga is a 6-foot-4 guard currently playing at Citrus, a junior college in California. He is considered to be a very good perimeter shooter, also capable of playing down low. Brad Winton of JucoRecruiting has showered Parga with some pretty high accolades.
“Parga is one of the better JC shooters in the country. Great frame/high bball IQ”
Winton first reported that the Johnny’s had been scouting out Parga. Hawaii and Boston College have also shown interest in Parga. St. John’s has plenty of room on the roster for next season. The addition of Brandon Parga could be yet another piece in getting the Johnny’s back to the NCAA Tournament. Convincing these players to come to Queens will be the key to making that happen.
UPDATE: Per Brad Winton, St. John’s has sent head Coach Steve Lavin and an assistant out to Citrus College in order to scout Parga. This is the second time that St. John’s has gone to watch Parga play.
