Moe Harkless of St. John’s wins the honor of Big East Rookie of the Year

On a St. John’s team that often featured just a six man rotation, Moe Harkless was always the epitome of consistency and reliability. His 15.3 points per game and 8.6 rebounds helped to get him the accolades of Big East Rookie of the Year. Harkless and teammate D’Angelo Harrison were the two stars of the Red Storm this past season, but now the concern is whether or not they will be here next year.


A few draft boards have Harkless going at a very interesting position, one where he probably wouldn’t even have to move out of Queens. With the Nets moving to Brooklyn, the Queens native is projected to join New Jersey in their move. While Harkless may not have the pizzazz or star power yet, having a New York native could be key for helping the Brooklyn Nets draw some new fans. That being said, as a St. John’s student and fan, I do not want to see Harkless go anywhere for another three years. Here is hoping to that.
