My Pre-Season Big East Men’s Basketball Awards for 2021-2022

The NCAA College Basketball season gets underway tomorrow, so now is as good a time as any to drop in with my pre-season selections for my All-Big East Teams and individual award winners. You can pick apart my selections as you please but I’m just happy that we have College Basketball back in our lives.
