St. John's versatile forward Sir'Dominic Pointer made it into the second round of the NBA Draft Thursday night when the Cleveland Cavaliers selected him with the 53rd overall pick.

Pointer won the Haggerty Award as the top player in the New York metropolitan area last season when he averaged 13.7 points, 7.7 rebounds, 3.0 assists, 2.4 blocks and 1.9 steals per game. He was co-defensive player of the year in the Big East Conference.

Pointer was only the second Big East player taken in the entire draft along with Villanova's Darrun Hilliard, who went No. 38 overall to Detroit.
