Hart has already had a slew of accolades this year, winning Big East Player of the Year, named to the All-Big East First Team and also received the Big East Tournament’s Most Outstanding Player award for his performance in the Wildcats’ run through the tourney earlier this March.
Congrats are in order for Hart who is also up for the National Player of the Year award.
