Boys' basketball: Dwayne Polee Jr. is leaving St. John's

Former Westchester standout Dwayne Polee Jr. is transferring from St. John's to be closer to his family while his mother deals with a health issue.

"He'll be a big help closer to home," Yolanda Polee said Sunday.

Pepperdine and Loyola Marymount could be in the mix to land Polee, who started as a freshman at St. John's. Also don't count out San Diego State.

His dad played at Pepperdine, including two years with current HC Marty Wilson. Why wouldn't Polee go there?


I am all for family values, but ya know, unless mom is dying...and I know this is going to come across as pretty harsh....maybe dad, and other siblings can help mom out with stuff...Let the kid stay at St. John's a parent...I would insist he stayed at St. John's because the best interest of my son and his future, is of the utmost least it would be to me....the opportunity to grow up in NYC, and the connections he would make, and the fact that he could grow up independent are priceless as far as I am concerned.

I remember when my father had some health issues and I was living 400 miles away, living my life, running my business..and my mom called to tell me what was going on...I rushed to see my dad...and when I got to the hospital he asked me why I was there....he said he appreciated the effort, but unless I was going to perform the procedure on his heart, there wasn't much I was going to do...and that I should have stayed at home with my family and tended to my business...just a different cat, my old man, I guess...selfless and practical...

I pray mom isn't dying nor her illness protracted.
