Keith BennettCorrespondent IMay 17, 2010

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.

If St. John's was going to sign California swingman Remi Barry, Lavin needed to find another scholarship.

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.
