St. John's is aiming high, but probably not close to home, in hiring a new coach. Big East schools generally don't like to raid each other. So where does the Red Storm look? Here are five possible candidates:

Florida . Long Islander and NCAA champion, would fit all the criteria. But would he come here? Oregon, with Nike money, reportedly also is in pursuit.

, Siena. Ready to take the next step, but St. John's wants someone who has taken it before.

Steve Donahue , Cornell. Star of this year's Big Dance so far, a Philly kid from Big East country. But ready for Big East?

Mark Turgeon, Texas A & M. Turned around Aggies program, played at Kansas, Larry Brown disciple. But how would he fit in New York?
