Moe Harkless named Big East Rookie of the Week

Moe Harkless has been named Big East Rookie of the Week for the second time.

One Moe' time!

St. John's Red Storm freshman forward Moe Harkless has been named the Big East Conference's Rookie of the Week. Harkless, who averaged 18 points and 9.5 rebounds in the Johnnies' wins over DePaul and Notre Dame, is now a two-time recipient of the award.

Harkless has been St. John's most consistent offensive performer in a roller-coaster 13-16 (6-10 Big East) season. Though the showings of D`Angelo Harrison and the emergence of Amir Garrett and Sir`Dominic Pointer have catapulted the team, it has been Harkless' steady production that led the Red Storm to two big wins.

It has been the offensive outbursts of Garrett and Pointer that have allowed Harkless to get more open looks than he had been getting. With additional scorers, the "Fresh Five" is becoming a bigger threat on the court.

"When those other guys are going, it helps us out a lot. It takes a lot of pressure off of us," Harkless told ESPN's Doris Burke after Saturday's win over Notre Dame. "When they're playing, I love playing with them."

But, when it is all broken down, it starts and ends with Moe Harkless.

Harkless has averaged 15.6 points and 8.7 rebounds in the first 29 games of his St. John's career. He has become the Red Storm's rock by scoring at least 15 points 17 different times, while sometimes having to play the full 40 minutes.

St. John's will need Harkless' production, both offensively and on the boards, in its two remaining regular season games and in the Big East Tournament next week. The Johnnies travel to Pittsburgh this Wednesday night for a clash with the Panthers.
