    I have been a bit unhappy with the job Wojo has done with Marquette. They also have new digs and need to sweep 'Nova
    this upcoming season. Last season only 'Nova played consistently, the rest of the teams you never knew what you were going to get. Just look at Providence last season.

    Brunson, Bridges, DD, and Spellman will all enter the draft.

    Say goodbye to top 4 scorers.

    And I can honestly say I don't mind. Ready to lay back and watch a season of no expectations.

    Sweeping Nova next year might not be a stretch for a number of teams in the Big East.

    I still think Nova is the favorite in the BE next season. Booth, Pascall, Gillespie, Cremo, Cosby-Roundtree is still a good core. And my bet is the incoming freshman will be really good. I'd still probably take that back court over anybody else in the BE, unless Ponds comes back for St John's and they get Heron from Auburn. I will admit I'm bigger on Booth than probably most are. Start Quinerly at PG with Booth and Cremo and Pascall and Cosby-Roundtree. Bring Gillespie and the other highly ranked freshman off the bench.

    Oh yea, they'll still be the favorite. And it's a down year in the Big East. But I can see them losing a bunch of games. It will be an adventure.

    Nova wins the BE. Don’t think itll be that tough either.

    Marquette, SJU, Xavier, Butler, Creighton, Providence, Gtown, SHU, DePaul

    That’s a decent guess for the pecking order of rosters. I throw SJU in at 3 because I really don’t know with them and their potential to get Heron. They could be a total dud. I think 2-7 are extremely interchangeable.

    This is the first true make or break year for Wojo. Marquette still isn’t gonna be a great team, but I think on paper they are clearly the 2nd best down year BE team

    I will go Nova to win. Marquette, Creighton, Xavier, Butler then the last 4 in your posted order.
    forgot to put SJU below Butler.

    SJU is such a wildcard. They got the talent but they have to prove they can play actual basketball and not just that frantic up and down game.

    Gonna be a real interesting BE season. Xavier with so many new players
