Georgetown has Big East coach, player of the year
JaKarr Sampson became the second straight St. John’s player to be selected Rookie of the Year. The 6-8 forward is the conference’s top freshman scorer (14.9) and rebounder (6.6). He follows Moe Harkless as rookie of the year.
“The Big East Rookie of the Year award was one of the individual goals I set for myself,” Sampson said. “This is a big moment for me. I’m proud of myself for achieving my goal.”
Sampson becomes the second straight St. John’s player to earn Big East rookie honors and the third overall. Harkless took home the league’s top freshman honor in 2011-12, while David Russell earned the award in 1979-80.
St. John’s coach Steve Lavin said Sampson “probably has as much enthusiasm as any player I’ve coached. Energy is one of his gifts, he brings electricity and energy to the game, that separates or distinguishes him from other players.”
