St. John's needed another scholarship, and coach Steve Lavin found one yesterday when swingman Omari Lawrence said he would transfer out of St. John's.

Lawrence, a sophomore from the Bronx, did not say where he intended to transfer. He averaged 2.5 points and 1.5 rebounds in 9.3 minutes last season for the Johnnies.
