Big East always has a quality column of representations in the NCAA tournament, and this year will NOT be any different.

Villanova is the reigning national champ. Xavier could actually be better this season than it was last. Georgetown is set for a huge rebound year, and Creighton’s got two of the six or seven most valuable players in the league. At the bottom, even DePaul and St. John’s are set up to be stronger than a year ago. Even teams like Providence and Marquette, which lost first-round draft picks and won’t be as strong, still set up to be threats to crack the top half of the conference.
In fact just because in our prediction we have DePaul and St. John low, they will be very tough to play on the hardwood for many top-tier teams.
Predicted order of finish
Player of the Year: Josh Hart, Villanova
Freshman of the Year: Shamorie Ponds, St. John’s
