Hardy named Big East Player of Week

For the second time this season, St. John's guard Dwight Hardy has been named the Big East Player of the Week.

Hardy was honored this time around for scoring a career-high 33 points in a win over No. 9 UConn on Thursday, and a team-high 18 points in a win at Cincinnati on Sunday.

The 6-foot-2 senior shot 17-for-32 from the field in those two games, and 9-for-15 from 3-point range. He is now averaging 16.6 points per game on the season, to lead the Red Storm.
