UConn will be trying to repeat as national champion despite the loss of star Kemba Walker.

Despite some heavy losses like Kemba Walker, Austin Freeman, Brad Wanamaker, Marshon Brooks, and Jimmy Butler the Big East is still easily the best conference in America. New stars will take over for those that have gone on and a very strong class of freshmen is ready to show what they can do. However due to conference realignment, what happens off the court will be making bigger news now that Pitt and Syracuse have announced a move to the ACC.

Last year's national champion UConn is set to take a bit of a dip following the loss of All-American Walker, but they will be competing for the top spot in the league with Final Four contenders Pittsburgh and Syracuse - each in possibly their final season in the league depending on the outcome of the Big East allowing the schools to leave for the ACC.

This article will preview at every team and projecting where they will finish based on both the overall talent of the roster and their schedules.
