Posh Alexander gets warm reception in St. John’s return with Butler: ‘Still have love’
Posh Alexander wasnt sure what kind of reception he would receive during his return to Queens.
After three years as St. Johns point guard, he came back as the opposition looking to beat the home team.
The Red Storm fans gave him a pleasant surprise, honoring Alexander with a loud ovation during pregame introductions.
It felt good, just knowing that I still have love around here and just playing in Carnesecca for one last time, Alexander said after he and Butler fell to his old team, 86-70, Tuesday night. When they did the starting five and they all cheered for me, thats love right there.
Alexander started well, scoring 11 first-half points.
But he went scoreless after the break, and St. Johns pulled away for an easy victory.
Despite the loss, Alexander is having a strong senior season at Butler, rebounding from a shaky year last winter.

Alexander didnt want to look back at what might have been.
I didnt have any bad intentions or bad blood. I just left because I wanted a change of scenery, he said. I wanted to take my talents to Butler. Rick Pitino is a great guy, great coach. It was nothing personal.
