The 6-foot-2 senior from the Bronx finished the regular season averaging 17.9 points per game, fourth in the conference, and led the Red Storm to a tie for third place with Louisville and Syracuse -- St. John's best finish in the league since its third place showing in 2002.
Hardy is the first St. John's player to make the first team since Lamont Hamilton in 2007.
"Dwight Hardy is as deserving of the All-Big East conference recognition as any player I've coached," said St. John's coach Steve Lavin. "The dominant performance and leadership Dwight has provided over the course of his senior year has been a catalyst in St. John's successful season."
Hansbrough was the only unanimous selection, as voted by the conference's head coaches. The Big East Player of the Year will be announced at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, on the first day of the Big East tournament.
