My Picks for the All-Big East Teams for the 2021-2022 Season

The 2021-2022 college basketball regular season has come to an end and as we look forward to chaos at Madison Square Garden and March Madness, we need to give some Big East players kudos for their play this season. This may have been the hardest season yet to pick which players went on which teams and if you check out my pre-season selections, they weren’t even close to how the season played out. As always, I hate how some leagues choose more than 5 players per team, so I’m sticking with 5 for each, you know, like an actual basketball team.
