CBS Conference Catch-up: Big East

Matt Norlander of CBS Sports takes a deeper look at the Big East – the comings and goings, his early guess at an all conference team, and his top five teams.

Notably, Norlander has a Friar on his five man all conference team, but it isn’t Bryce Cotton, the league’s returning leading scorer and 1st Team performer last year. And no, it isn’t Kadeem Batts, the 3rd Team selection.

Norlander gives the nod to Kris Dunn, along with Doug McDermott of Creighton, Marquette wide-body Davante Gardner, Georgetown’s Markel Starks, and one of my favorites, Xavier (and former Brewster Academy) point guard Semaj Christon.

His early guess at the top five teams in the league?

1. Marquette

2. Georgetown

3. Creighton

4. Butler

5. Xavier

That’s a lot of love for the newcomers.

Here’s the entire article.
