I’ll probably end up putting together a big list of BIG EAST previews from around those interwebs, but I’ll continue to post up things as they come in. Here is a good preview from our friend at the St. John’s blog “The East Coas Bias”
Here is what he has to say about the Friars.
Providence: The Friars return Marson Brooks and Sharaud Curry, along with Brian McKenzie, Jamine “Greedy” Peterson and Bilal Dixon. And then there are a number of guys who are new – from junior college and high schools – that don’t come with great publicity. I expect to see someone in the returning group logging iron man minutes, but Coach Davis got the Friar players to play his system in a few months… I think this team will improve a good amount during the year barring injury. But can all those newcomers stop the scoring of Big East players? Last year’s team was not effective at stopping opponent scoring, no reason to think this year’s team will; can they continue to defend without sending opponents to the line as well? Prognosis: No postseason
I wonder how Pico would feel if he realized that Peterson and Dixon were red shirted last year! Anyways, head on over to the site to check out his thoughts on the rest of the teams.
