Cards, Hoyas are Big East co-favorites

New, 1 comment

Both Louisville and Georgetown received eight first-place votes and 217 total points in the preseason Big East basketball coaches poll.

Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own teams, thus Bobby Gonzalez's first-place vote for Seton Hall is noticeably absent.

The full preseason poll looks like this:

  1. Louisville (8)- 217
  2. Georgetown (8)- 217
  3. Marquette- 191
  4. Pittsburgh- 170
  5. Syracuse- 153
  6. Connecticut- 149
  7. Villanova- 143
  8. Providence- 141
  9. Notre Dame- 122
  10. West Virginia- 112
  11. Depaul- 79
  12. Cincinnati- 62
  13. Seton Hall- 56
  14. St. John's- 52
  15. Rutgers- 32
  16. South Florida- 23
Don't want to call the coaches liars or anything, but I'm going to go ahead and say that Cincinnati doesn't make the Big East Tournament. More on that this week.
