Pitino grinding hard on the recruiting circuit. Johnnies land an attractive prospect, Brady Dunlap. Bradys father was a long time D1 assistant and endorsed the move.

Johnnies also pick  up an excellent transfer

The only place Pitino grinds hard at is Porcinis table. And it is a premature grind at that.

U Conn and Gonzaga have a home and home. They are billing it as a neutral site deal, Seattle and MSG.

Creightons Trey Alexander and Ryan Kalkbrenner analyzing their options…

Good lord, who waits until paragraph SEVEN to mention the topic of your article? Talk about completely burying the lead.

Tyler Kolek and Kam Jones are in LA working out with Juan Toscano-Anderson's trainer.

Pretty cool! TK and Kam are going to have a special connection this year...just wait.

"Sources: Villanova has emerged as a strong potential destination for Richmond transfer Tyler Burton. Burton is also an early entrant for the 2023 NBA Draft. Averaged 19 PPG and 7.4 RPG last season."

Nova would probably leap in front to take the best odds to win the Big East.

Is an unreal starting 5.  WOW.

That's alot of NIL money for very little point guard play. Maybe they'll finish 4th in the big east this year.

Mark Armstrong has the potential to be one of the best PGs in the Big East.

He does, but with that group he is the guy coming off the bench playing twenty.... and they still might be 4th in the big east. That is lot of NIL money for that team. Like they are paying Ware for 8 minutes per game now?

Also there is still a chance between Marquette, Uconn, and Crieghton, they each have multiple players who could easily be better than any of Nova's best player. Like between them like 6-8 guys.  Somewhere around there.

Kolek, Oso, Kam, Clingan, Castle, Newton, Ashworth, Kalkbrenner, Schiermann...

vs.

Hakim Hart? Moore post achilles tear? Dixon?

Sure, any of those teams could be better. I just said Big East Title favorites in Vegas. Systems will love that team on paper.

They'll probably love the team that won the Big East by multiple games and return all but 1 rotation player and the team that won the national title more.

Betting odds for the national champions are live. Per DraftKings. (Wouldn’t recommend using it, bad lines)

Nova is 4th in the big East.

There are also lines for a final four appearance.

They are tied for 4th in the big East with Xavier.

Not sure if  you're serious here, but...they'd be okay. Moore is good, but we don't know how healthy he'll be (was clearly never up to 100% last year). Bamba and Hart were fine role-players. Burton I like, but he still has to prove it at this level. Dixon is a solid high-major starter, but not exactly what would lead me to any "unreal" conclusions.

Looks like a 7-11 seed on paper.

I think he has the most NBA upside of any of the Creighton players, but I’m not sure he’s ready yet.
