Penn State’s John Harrar Puts On Rebounding Clinic At 3X3U National Championship
Former Penn State men’s basketball star big man John Harrar made his presence felt at the 2022 3X3U National Championship in New Orleans this weekend.
The Nittany Lion represented the Big Ten on the “#B1GMACtion” squad alongside Wisconsin’s Brad Davison, Minnesota’s Payton Willis, and Bowling Green’s Daeqwon Plowden (MAC). Harrar and the rest of the group battled their way out of Pool D with a 5-1 record in the tournament’s opening three-on-three action.
While the group earned five wins in its first six games, Harrar was the tournament’s leading rebounder through the first two days.
#B1GMACtion grabbed a double-bye all the way to Sunday’s quarterfinal round. However, Harrar and his squad’s run came to an end Sunday afternoon when it fell to American East/MAAC group Metro East Mayhem 21-18.
Harrar and his teammates would’ve earned $5,000 had they won in that quarterfinal round. The entire tournament featured an $150,000 prize pool, while the final winners of the tournament — the Beast Coast Ballers — secured $50,000.
Harrar participated in this year’s tournament after finishing his Penn State career last month with 854 total rebounds, which ranks fifth-best in program history. Harrar’s rebounding prowess was on full display during his senior year, as he averaged 10.3 boards per game along with 10.6 points.
