My Pre-Season Big East Men’s Basketball Awards for 2022-2023

The College Basketball season gets underway in just about three weeks, 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. My pre-season individual award selections last year were especially off given that I was going all-in on a big season from St. John’s, which I will not do again until further notice.

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.
