Conference Preview: Big East

What does the Big East have to do so that it is mentioned with the other five “power” conferences? Last season, the Big East sent the highest percentage of any conference to the NCAA Tournament (7 of 10 teams) and even a 11-seed without its starting point guard was able to make it to the Elite Eight (Xavier). The conference now boasts two Dream Teamers as coaches (Chris Mullin, Patrick Ewing). Perhaps it is Villanova’s domination since its reformation as a basketball-only conference that causes people to poo-poo the 10-team league. In 2017-18, the Wildcat run at the top should be challenged by Seton Hall and Xavier, both of whom return most of the significant players from last year’s quality squads.
