The Big East media day is today. On top of Jim Boeheim lobbing bombs at Rick Pitino, the Big East coaches put out their picks for the Big East. Just like the media poll, Cincinnati was picked 4th.
1. Louisville (14)
3. Notre Dame (1)
10. St. John's
14. Seton Hall
DePaul not picked last for the first time maybe ever. The top 4 of Louisville, Syracuse, Notre Dame and Cincinnati is pretty consistent. Louisville is being hyped as one of the top teams in the country. It's not a surpise they are picked first. Or that their star point guard Peyton Siva was picked Big East Player of the Year.
Most importantly, Sean Kilpatrick was named first team All-Big East. He was first team in the media poll and first team on the coaches poll. Killa is not flying under the radar any more. I can not wait for the season to begin.
