    NEW YORK — Georgetown’s Otto Porter Jr. is the unanimous choice as Big East player of the year and the Hoyas’ John Thompson III is the coach of the year, more than three decades after his father won the award for the first time.

    JaKarr Sampson is the second straight St. John’s player to be selected rookie of the year.

    The awards were presented at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday, the first day of the conference tournament.

    Porter, a 6-foot-8 sophomore, led the Hoyas to a share of the regular season title with Louisville and Marquette.

    In conference games only, Porter was second in the league in scoring (18.1), fifth in rebounding (7.3), tied for third in steals (1.8) and second in 3-point shooting (44.1 percent).
