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.

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.
Current Xavier head coach, Chris Mack, is likely on his way out after a disappointing end to the Muskateers’ season. According to college basketball insider Jon Rothstein, barring something unforeseen, Mack will be the next head coach of the Louisville Cardinals.
Xavier head coach Chris Mack talked to the media on Providence’s strategy in the second half, and how his team is shifting their focus towards the NCAA Tournament.
Xavier is not only the best team in the Big East, but one of the best teams in the country. After a dominant victory over St. John’s yesterday, the Muskateers had a great start against the Friars in the Big East Tournament Semifinals. But, that didn’t last long.
Thursday’s afternoon session of the Big East Tournament at Madison Square Garden kicked off with top seeded Xavier and the hometown favorite, St. John’s. The second game of the afternoon featured a tightly contested matchup between Creighton and Providence.
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.
