Marquette Men's Basketball Picked To Win The Big East

USA TODAY Sports

Well, that's not terribly surprising, is it?

If you've been paying attention to the preseason predictions from various media outlets that have come out so far, it shouldn't be surprising to you to find out that the Big East's coaches have voted Marquette as the favorite to win the league this season.

Marquette picked up five of the nine available first place votes, as Buzz Williams wasn't able to vote for his own squad. That's also what you can call a majority decision. The Golden Eagles finished with 74 points in the voting, while Georgetown finished second in the balloting with 70 points and two first place votes. Creighton finished third with one first place vote, followed by Villanova, and then St. John's in fourth place, although the Johnnies did earn a first place vote from someone.

That's mostly how our predictions went. The only difference is I had Villanova outside the top five, with St. John's moving up to take their spot and Providence taking up the fifth place spot instead. The Friars finished in sixth place in the balloting, so I suppose I wasn't that far off.
