Moe Harkless was destined to be one of the better first year performers in the Big East and after watching him through 17 games it’s clear that he’s not just one of the elite players in his class — he’s one of the elite players in the entire conference.
Harkless had 21 points and 10 rebounds — his sixth double-double in the last 10 games — but he fouled out with 5:15 to play in the Red Storm’s 69-49 loss to No. 11 Georgetown at Madison Square Garden.
Kemba Walker scored 28 points in another stellar performance, and Connecticut remained alive in the Big East tournament with an easy 79-62 second-round victory over Georgetown on Wednesday.
