Big East Coaches Are Not Impressed

Tim SullivanContributor IOctober 25, 2009

Despite returning every key cog in the Red Storm machine, the Big East coaches picked St. John’s to finish 11th at Media Day today. This is either an indictment of the state of St. John’s hoops or an indication that the Big East is going to be hellish again this season. It’s probably a little from column A and a little from column B. Villanova, who reached the Final Four last season, is expected to win the conference, with Bob Huggins’ West Virginia squad a close second.

The predicted order of finish:

1. Villanova  
2. West Virginia
3. Connecticut
4. Louisville
5. Georgetown
6. Syracuse
7. Cincinnati
8. Notre Dame
9. Pitt
10. Seton Hall
11. St. John’s
12. Marquette
13. Providence
14. South Florida
15. Rutgers
16. DePaul

St. John’s did not go home empty-handed however, as Norm Roberts was named “Coach Most Likely to Drink Alone.”
