1. Seton Hall
2. Xavier
3. Villanova
4. Providence
5. Georgetown
6. Butler
7. Marquette
8. St. John's
9. Creighton
10. DePaul

The Nova pick is an outlier vs conventional wisdom, but that looks like a big talent drop-off to me compared to recent years and coaching can only take them so far when the Hall is stacked and X is bringing back basically everyone.

6-9 you could put in a hat and pick out in any order, I went with best guess even though it's hard to see Creighton finishing 9th. I don't see how Marquette finishes top half without the Hausers, so they end up in the pack.

The league is TOUGH.

Johnnies finish 8th or 9th in tough BE as noted above. Hoping to be surprised, but just being grounded.

I think Providence has the most complete roster in the league and Cooley is a good enough coach to capitalize.

1. Providence

2-4
Hall
Xavier
Nova

5-10
Any guess

St. John's is by far the most ambiguous. There is potential for Heron and Fig to both have monster years but there are also so many question marks and potential points of failure (front court lack of size and depth - injuries, fouls, point guard still questionable). The least ambiguous is CMA coaching record.

I'd like to get Rutherford's results and the final recruit before picking but it would not be unreasonable to pick them last which I am sure some will. At this point I'll concur with LMF. Rutherford is cleared and we get another big and I'll adjust that.

I know it's a double round robin, but I still don't think you can predict how the conference will go, until the schedule comes out (at the earliest).

When you play teams can be just as important. Last year, we played Xavier 2 out of the last 3 regular season games. At that point, some of our flaws were becoming more apparent, and Xavier was starting to figure things out. If we had played them twice early in the year (similar to Creighton), we probably would have swept them.

Villanova is #1 until proven otherwise
I don't have a lot of confidence in Willard

I don't know how tough against Power 5 conferences, but certainly very competitive within

This is really up in the air. I think we will play an entirely different brand of basketball to try to earn wins. We aren’t going to be the most talented, but at 2 or 3 spots in the floor we have starters that can certainly be among the best. We are going to need a LOT of contribution from guys who have never really contributed at this level before and that will make it tough for us. Lots of learning aches and pains. We are certainly gearing to run a team 10 deep instead of sticking to only 5 or so. Our overall energy should be better from game to game playing more guys. Hopefully we can wear some teams down and create some
Trouble. I expect to finish In the bottom third of the conference. Too
Many variables and lack of overall talent to expect us to make any big runs this year:
