    Marqfan BIG EAST 2020/2021

    We are exactly 2 weeks away from the start of the season. College basketball will look very different this year but im still excited. I will be posting my BIG EAST plays in this thread. Tail or Fade as you wish!

    POSTED RECORDS on SBR:

    2017/2018 56-40-2 (58%) +12 units
    2018/2019 53-48-1 (52%) +0.2 units
    2019/2020 54-45-1 (54%) +5.5 units

    My BE 2020/21 predicted order of finish

    1. Creighton
    2. Villanova
    3. Connecticut
    4. Seton Hall
    5. Providence
    6. Marquette
    7. Xavier
    8. Butler
    9. St johns
    10. Georgetown
    11. Depaul

    POY: Marcus Zegarowski (Creighton)

    FOY: Dawson Garcia (Marquette)

    All BE Team:

    1. Marcus Zegarowski (Creighton)
    2. Collin Gillespie (Nova)
    3. Bryce Aiken (SH)
    4. James Bouknight (UCONN)
    5. Mitch Ballock (Creighton)

    Yes, im taking 5 guards to take home BH first team this year. Obviously there are many other fantastic players that can make this list: Robinson-earl, Scruggs, Antoine, Moore and the list goes on.

    This year will be very bumpy, but im optimistic that we will complete this year with some sort of tournament. See everyone on Nov 25!

    Providence -20

    Ed Cooley should have his team ready for this opener. I like the inside outside presence of Duke and Watson to lead the scoring vs a team that only shot 39% last year. Providence gets an easy win. Friars by 27

    Umbc. +13

    Iím not high on Georgetown this year. They bring back Blair and Pickett but had a huge turnover of players. Umbc return 6/7 of their main playmakers. Hoyas should struggle out of the gates. Hoyas win by 5

    Butler -18.5

    Butler may have had some turnover, and losing Baldwin is huge. They are still defensively solid. Western Michigan lost their 2 best player that averaged a combined 34 pts per game. This one should not be close. Butler by 29!

    St. Johnís -9.5

    Although I wasnít impressed yesterday with St. Johnís, I do see some value here. Lasalle is small and St. Johnís should be able to dominate the boards on both sides of the court. Offensive rebounds should lead to easy pts. Red storm win by 14.

    Nova -6

    Yes, I should have taken this one earlier for the better number but I still like it. Nova looked shaky but should look better with a game under their belt. Arizona st won but gave up a 16 pt lead. If nova gets a run like that, they will cruise to a cover. Cats by 10

    Xavier -9.5

    Xavier destroyed oakland before a nail biting win vs Bradley. Toledo had a nail biting loss to Bradley than destroyed oakland. They eye test would say these teams look even, but I do see an advantage. Toledo will live and die by the 3, which they did very well with in their first two games. This is now their third game in 3 days to open the season. I first see xavier playing better defense around the arc and also see Toledo's legs being tired here on day three. Xavier will dominate the paint and score at will. Xavier wins this one easily by 16!

    Louisville -5.5

    Seton Hall is going to be good this year. They lost Powell and Mcknight but added Harvard transfer Aiken who I predict will be first team all big east. I believe it will take a game or two for Aiken to become comfortable with his new team and system. Louisville is a tough first game matchup and I see seton hall struggling enough to lose and for louisville to cover. Cards by 10
