|Mustapha Heron. @StJohnsBBall.|
St. John's junior guard Mustapha Heron has earned a spot on the Big East Weekly Honor following a 19-point showing in his Big East debut.
The 6-foot-5 Auburn transfer put up 19 points in the Red Storm’s loss to Seton Hall on Saturday night by sinking five of his 11 shot attempts from the field, including a 4-for-8 effort from beyond the arc. Heron also converted on five of his seven free throw tries.
Heron, who was also named to the Big East Weekly Honor Roll in November after scoring 27 points at Rutgers, recorded three steals and pulled down three boards in 38 minutes of action.
For the season, Heron ranks second on the team and ninth in the Big East in scoring at 15.8 points per game.
Heron and the Red Storm return to action tomorrow at Carnesecca Arena, playing host to nationally ranked Marquette at 7 p.m.
