The 2019-2020 season of college basketball is just a few months away. Schedules have been released, rosters are almost finalized and fall is upon us. There truly isn’t a better time of the year. Now, I introduce to you my rankings for the upcoming season in the Big East conference. These rankings include lists for many different categories. Without further ado, here we go.
John Fanta lives and breathes Big East Basketball. He’s been a commentator for the Big East Digital Network the past few years. Just recently, he announced he’ll be starting a new job as a commentator for Fox Sports 1 and do play-by-play for five games this season.
Today, we got the chance to ask the expert a few burning questions that surround the conference. Continue reading “A Quick Q&A with John Fanta”

As the month of August winds down and another summer without college basketball comes to a close, the excitement begins to build as another year of close competition in the Big East Conference looms. However, this season isn’t as a clear cut as last season. A few days ago, we tweeted out Sports Illustrated’s power rankings.
Day one of the Big East Tournament brought bad weather, but great basketball. The first game was between old-time rivals, as the St. John’s Red Storm took on the Georgetown Hoyas, followed by Marquette vs. DePaul in a game that went down to the wire.
Georgetown center Jessie Govan did all he could to keep the Hoyas in the game tonight against the Red Storm, but St. John’s was just too good in the second half. The 6-10 junior finished with 28 points, two assists, and 11 rebounds.
We are hours away from the Big East Tournament kicking off at Madison Square Garden in the heart of New York City. For those of you that haven’t been paying attention, the Big East teams have been beating the life out of each other over the last month, and now it all comes down to a four-day tournament to see if anyone can steal the title or a bid to the Big Dance.
Tomorrow night, the Big East Tournament will be underway with two great games to kick off the action at the world’s most famous arena, and the nor’easter won’t be the only storm in town. I’ll be here all week, folks.
