The All-MET award winners have been announced and D’Angelo Harrison of St. John’s is the recipient of this season’s Haggerty Award.

Columbia had a season for the ages in 2013-14. The Lions won 21 games, won two games in the CollegeInsider.com Tournament, and finished in the top half of the Ivy League. It was the first major step in Kyle Smith’s rebuilding of a program that hadn’t won 20 games in a season since 1969-70.
