We got exactly 100 responses, and now, we have your St. John’s All-Half Decade Team!
Here are the results.
D’Angelo Harrison, Guard
(96 votes, 97%)
The All-Half Decade team starts with perhaps the best player of ‘em all in the eyes of the voters. D’Angelo Harrison scored nearly a consensus vote onto the team as he picked up 96 of the 100 votes cast for the team. Harrison was an exceptional player for the Red Storm under head coach Steve Lavin, scoring over 2,000 points and averaging double figures every single year.
Moe Harkless, Guard
(67 votes, 67.7%)
And we now move on to the last player from the Red Storm to be selected in the first round of the NBA Draft. Moe Harkless was a one-and-done for Steve Lavin and made sure to make an impact while he was a member of the Red Storm. Harkless averaged 15.5 points and 8.6 rebounds per game in the 2011-12 season, which was good enough to earn him a lottery pick in the ensuing draft. Harkless garnered 67 votes in total by the voters after just one year. Who knows what could’ve been accomplished if he went for two?
Dwight Hardy, Guard
(64 votes, 64.6%)
Dwight Hardy spent just two years at St. John’s but still made a significant impact on the floor for the Johnnies. Hardy averaged 14.6 points over the course of his career including a mark of 18.3 in the 2010-11 season. He is perhaps best remembered for a game-winner he hit over eventual No. 1 seed Pittsburgh at Madison Square Garden that eventually got St. John’s in the Top 25 for the first time since the start of the new millennium.
D.J. Kennedy, Guard/Forward
(75 votes, 75.8%)
D.J. Kennedy maneuvers his way onto the All-Half Decade Team after a terrific career at St. John’s in the late 2000s. Kennedy was eligible to make this team despite playing three years prior to the 2010-11 season, where the Johnnies guard averaged 10.4 points and 5.6 rebounds per game. Kennedy scooped up 75.8 percent of the vote, the third-highest total of any player on the ballot.
Sir’Dominic Pointer, Forward
(87 votes, 87.9%)
Sir’Dom rounds out this guard-heavy team and would give this Johnnies team quite a lot of tenacity defensively. Pointer, of course, was the Big East Defensive Player of the Year following a splendid effort in the 2014-15 season, giving the Johnnies a terrific effort on both ends of the floor. Pointer picked up 87 votes, good for 87.9 percent of the vote among the 100 ballots cast. That mark is second-highest behind former teammate D’Angelo Harrison.
