His Game in 30 Words or Fewer: Egoless, productive bench weapon
You Might Know Him From: On a vet-heavy team led by senior guard James Bell and junior guard Darrun Hilliard, Hart hasn’t been in the spotlight much. Recently, though, he’s been effective coming off the bench and looking to score; in the Big East tourney, he poured in 18 in the eventual loss to Seton Hall. Hart, along with his fellow D.C. native Kris Jenkins, is another great example of Jay Wright scoring big on less heralded players on the recruiting trail.
