Now to our All-American. Your Big East Player of the Year, Luke Harangody. Averaging 20.4 points and 10.6 rebounds in 29 minutes a game last year, Luke was the clear MVP of the team. The fear this season is that teams will learn how to stop the big fella like Big East squads did a few times at the end of the year. His improved shot will hopefully keep teams from crashing inside and taking away the post. Without Rob Kurz helping out on the boards, Harangody will need to be especially efficient rebounding this season.
Overall, give me another year like last season and stay fresh down the stretch. We will see if LH can take the next step and take over tournament games like a true star forward. If he can continue to develop, a top-10 NBA pick and big money awaits. Or an even better senior year (we can hope, right?).
