Harkless news conference set for Monday

Moe Harkless will hold a news conference at Madison Square Garden on Monday, at which the St. John's forward will announce whether he is planning to enter the NBA draft or return to the Red Storm for his sophomore season.

The fact that Harkless is holding a news conference indicates he is likely to turn pro.

The 6-foot-8 Queens native was named the Big East Rookie of the Year earlier this month, after averaging 15.3 points and 8.6 rebounds per game this season.
