The stars of last season are now playing professionally. The stars of this season are leading their teams to the NCAA tournament or vastly improved seasons compared to last.
Where are the stars of next year? They are getting major minutes for many Big East teams and have even been major contributors.
The Big East has so many talented teams that it would be very hard for a one-man team to have consistent success.
The stars of the Big East, like West Virginia's Da'Sean Butler, Marquette's Lazar Hayward, USF's Dominique Jones, and many others of note are receiving substantial help and effort from many underrated and young players who were finally given minutes this season.
For this reason, I present to you the 2009-10 Big East Conference underrated contributors, who will surely be the stars of their teams next season.
