St. John’s D’Angelo Harrison was named to the 2015 Portsmouth Invitational All-Tournament Team after leading Roger Brown’s to a third place finish at the annual event held at Churchland High School in Portsmouth, Va. Harrison was the tournament’s third leading scorer (17.3 points), ranked second in assists (5.7) and tied for ninth in rebounds (7.7).

Harrison opened the tournament nearly recording a triple-double with 17 points, nine rebounds and seven assists to lift Roger Brown’s to an 89-88 victory over Sales Systems Ltd on Thursday. He shot 7-for-17 from the field and knocked down two 3-pointers.

Despite a game-high 23 point performance (7-of-12 FG, 3-of-4 3FG, 6-of-6 FT) from Harrison off the bench on Friday, Roger Brown’s fell, 78-77, to Portsmouth Partnership. Harrison added six rebounds and four assists in 28 minutes.

Harrison helped lead Roger Brown’s to a 95-83 victory on the final day of the tournament with 12 points, eight rebounds and a game-high six assists. He had three steals and blocked two shots, while also shooting 5-of-9 from the field with a pair of 3s.

Harrison hit 50.0 percent (19-for-38) of his field goal attempts over the three games. He shot a sweltering 7-of-11 (.636) from 3-point range, the second highest shooting mark from long range of the 64 players in the tournament. Harrison’s 4.3 assist-to-turnover ratio tied for the fifth-best and his 3.3 offensive rebounds per game tied for fourth.

The two-time First Team All-BIG EAST honoree finished second in the BIG EAST this past season averaging 17.5 points per game. He scored in double-figures in 30-of-33 appearances, including 14 20-point performances and three 30-point efforts. Harrison was eighth in the BIG EAST in free-throw shooting percentage (.799) and sixth in 3-point field goals per game (2.0). He collected First Team NABC District 5 and USBWA All-District II honors, while also being named a 2014-15 Senior CLASS Award Second Team All-American.

The 6-foot-4 senior from Missouri City, Texas finished his four-year career at St. John’s third on the program’s scoring list with 2,178 points. Harrison reached double-figures in 107-of-125 games in his career, including 53 20-point performances. He will graduate with a program record 264 3-pointers and ranks ninth in BIG EAST history with 1,178 points in conference games.

Established in 1953, the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament welcomes 64 of the best college seniors across the nation to compete before representatives of all 30 National Basketball Association (NBA) franchises as well as international scouts. For more information on the P.I.T. visit PortsmouthInvitational.com .
