Louisville Tabbed As Unanimous Big East Favorite In Preseason Media Poll

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

As it does around this time every year, the Syracuse Post-Standard asked 15 sportswriters from media markets around the Big East to rank the league's basketball teams for its preseason media poll.

Somewhat surprisingly (only because it's so rare for any sizable preseason poll to be unanimous), all 15 members of the media selected Louisville as their preseason favorite.

Here are the results of the poll:

1. Louisville 15 (15 1st-place votes)
2. Syracuse 33
3. Notre Dame 49
4. Cincinnati 63
5. Pittsburgh 78
6. Georgetown 97
7. Marquette 109
8. South Florida 123
9. Connecticut 159
10. St. John's 163
11. Rutgers 167
12. Villanova 171
13. Providence 176
14. Seton Hall 188
15. DePaul 209

You think I'm going to make a DePaul comment, but I'm not. I guess I'm just DePaul out of love.

The media's all-conference selections will be released later today.
