St. John's guard D`Angelo Harrison has been selected to participate in the 2015 Division I College All-Star Game along with 21 other seniors on the day before the Final Four (Friday, April 3rd) at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Harrison will be a member of the East squad (coached by Nebraska head coach Tim Miles) along with five other Big East members including Matt Stainbrook, LaDontae Henton, JayVaughn Pinkston, Darrun Hilliard and Kameron Woods.

St. John's third all-time leading scorer averaged 17.5 points per game, 5.5 rebounds per game (the most in his four year college career) and 1.9 assists per game during his senior season, despite playing through a number of nagging injuries. He led the Johnnies to their first NCAA Tournament berth since 2011 but they ran into Steve Fisher's San Diego State Aztecs and failed to advance out of the second round. Harrison scored 18 points (7-of-16 shooting), grabbed 9 rebounds and only turned the ball over twice in their NCAA Tournament loss.

The Missouri City native was second in the Big East in scoring this past season and scored in double figures in 30-of-33 games. He shot a career high 41 percent from the field, 37 percent from three and 80 percent from the free throw line.

Harrison's teammates, Phil Greene IV and Sir`Dominic Pointer, were not elected in spite of their tremendous careers at St. John's (both 1,000 point scorers) and their impressive senior seasons.

Harrison is looking to make his next move in basketball, which will a goal of making an NBA roster. He is currently not projected to be selected in the latest mock draft, according to Draft Express.
