Can someone explain how St. John's is picked ahead of Seton Hall? I'm not saying the Hall is anything great but St. John's is currently having open casting calls on campus trying to fill out a team and is going to have at least a walk on or two in their rotation. Sorry, just not seeing where the wins come from for them.

I agree Cincy is a sleeper.

They still have Pope and Theodore I believe. Definitely agree with Stopcoolio. Odd choice by the writers

The Hall has Theodore back at PG.

St. John's recruited better but a third of them are ineligible and they're left with a bunch of freshmen wings and guards. I just think this league is gonna eat them up.

Not like it's earth shattering or anything. Just a weird pick to me.

Drummond looks like he plays on a 8 foot rim

Definitely interesting... UConn must've gotten a few #3 votes and SU no lower than #2

I just can't believe that they have Providence below DePaul. I'd be all worked up if I were a Providence fan.

Especially since DePaul has lost one of its starters (I believe) for the season.

Looks like we probably got these votes:

First Place (6) = 6 points
Second Place (7) = 14 points
Third Place (3) = 9 points

The only other mathematical possibility I see is 6 first place votes, eight second place votes, one third place vote, and one 4th place vote.

If Providence is really that terrible, I'm glad we're playing them twice.
