Tough loss for Hoyas.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

What, you still throwing up bricks? What is this, a Masons convention? Clank, clank! I need, like, a welding torch to play in this league! I got an idea, let's just stop right now and gather up all these bricks and let's build a shelter for the homeless so maybe your mother will have a place to stay

Akinjo wasn't very good last year and hasn't been good yet this year.

Still a big loss from a depth perspective and both guys had upside.

They were dismissed effective immediately .

Akinjo was averaging 13 points a game, Leblanc 7.

He was Big East freshman of the year last year.

There were like 7 guys that it could have been. Had to pick one of them. He’s a small guard who can’t shoot. Yuck

He shot 36% from the field and is at 33% this year.

He was good enough to torch us in Milwaukee last year.  It may not effect the long term trajectory of the program, but a mid-season transfer of your leader in minutes, and second in scoring will hurt them this year.  Biggest impact will probably be either McClung and his 13% assist percentage, or Jagan Mosley and his 17% assist percentage will be thrust into a new/big(ger) role.

It doesn’t sound like a mid season transfer. It sounds like he was dismissed immediately. We will see.

If  Butler and Creighton were 25-2 and Saint John's and Georgetown were 25-2 with the same schedules you are saying it makes no difference for the Big East?

Don't F with Ewing even if you are the star players
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
And the wisdom to know the difference.

What turmoil is going on at St. John's, besides lucking into a really good coach after a pretty disastrous coaching search last spring?

Sounds like they were booted off the team.  Will be curious if any story is verified as to why.

Difference in terms of what?  Is Fox going to give us a larger TV contract? Georgetown is still something but St Johns hasn’t been relevant for decades.

And even so, I’m not sure that difference rises to the lev of “really important.”

I laughed.

Seriously, if I were a Hoyas fan, I imagine this would feel like Markus & Sam leaving as sophomores. I wasn't that high on Akinjo, but Hoyas fans seemed to think he'd bring them back to the top of the league and I do think Leblanc was the best player from their freshman class, even if he got the least acclaim.

Mods on Hoya message board editing certain posts. Lots of rumors flying.

Bios deleted from the roster. Usually a sign of something not positive.
