Marquette senior forward Jae Crowder has been selected Big East Player of the Year while South Florida's Stan Heath is Coach of the Year and St. John's Moe Harkless the Rookie of the Year. The awards, chosen by the coaches, were announced Tuesday. The 6-foot-6 Crowder averaged 17.6 points, third in the conference, and 7.9 rebounds, ninth in the league, for the Golden Eagles, who finished second. He is the first Marquette player to receive an individual award from the conference. Harkless, one of five freshmen to start for the Red Storm, averaged 15.5 points and 8.5 rebounds, which put him sixth and second, respectively, among freshmen nationally. The only other St. John's Rookie of the Year was David Russell in 1980, the conference's first season. Heath led the Bulls, who were picked 14th in the preseason poll, to a 12-6 conference record, their first winning mark in their seven seasons in the Big East.
