247 Way to Early Big East power rankings

https://247sports.com/college/marquette/longformarticle/uconn-xavier-creighton-highlight-way-too-early-big-east-basketball-power-rankings-231989950/#2422361

I get that Kalkbrenner coming back is big, but I think trying to replace Alexander and Scheyerman is gonna be harder than a lot of folks seem to think.

Am I the only one thinking there's a bit too much hype surrounding Xavier? Lost their best player from last year and relying on two bigs who have an injury history....

second is too high for them but getting Freemantle and Hunter back is big and they have some really good transfers coming in who score, especially Conwell and Maddox. Traore averaged a double/double last year at LBSU and he's slated to come off the bench. They have a very strong freshman class too. X will have solid depth this year.

They have a lot of talent coming in...but I really don't trust that Millere will be able to get that many new pieces to mesh together. I think Freemantle and Hunter are the only scholarship players who have actually played in a game together before.

I may end up being crazy, but I think gaining Pop and losing Alexander will be about a wash. Trading Neal for Scheirman is a big downgrade, but I think they make up for it through the development of other guys and the freshmen they bring in. Creighton should actually have a bench this season.

Isaacs and Alexander are a wash as far as Hair goes. Isaacs will have to make another leap forward in productivity to match what Alexander put up in his excellent junior season. It may be possible  for Pop to achieve that in the Creighton system.

Good. It seemed unfair that they were the only team in the country whose coaches and inactive players had to stand all game.

hard to say. Isaacs is a worse shooter overall, especially from three, and I liked how Alexander would drive the paint more as the season went on. How they mix Isaacs and Ashworth at the point will be interesting, since Isaacs is smaller than Alexander and less of a combo guard. Miller really needs to step it up to replace what Schierman brought as an outside threat.

Wooga Poplar to 'Nova. This probably moves them ahead of GTown in the standings, still not enough to save Neptune after the upcoming season

He’s a good college basketball player.  Nothing special but certainly not a negative.  I think he’ll be good for Villanova but not someone that makes them a tourney lock all of a sudden

I think he takes them from fighting with DePaul for 10th to fighting with Georgetown for 8th. How quickly Nova has fallen.

Just looking at the scoring averages of returning players and transfers in:
Xavier has 6 double digit scorers
DePaul has 5 double digit scorers.
Creighton has 4 double digit scorers
Butler, Georgetown and Villanova have 3 double digit scorers.
Marquette, Providence, Seton Hall and UConn have 2 double digit scorers.

The bolded teams are considered to be the top 5 teams.

UConn being considered a possible repeat NCAA champion depends greatly on their high-ranking freshmen class.

Villanova adding Poplar gets them up to 4 double digit scorers.

Hurley helped The Big East cause in an important way today. Demonstrates our league can compete in the NIL environment among other things. So no reason to leave.

Intriguing pick up for St John’s

https://nypost.com/2024/06/19/sports/rick-pitino-lands-ruben-prey-to-complete-st-johns-roster/

https://edemirnba.substack.com/p/ruben-prey-scouting-report
At 6’10”, Prey has the size to play as a full-time five. With close to 220 pounds, he has a fairly thin frame that’ll need development at the next level. With a consistent motor, Prey plays with toughness around the rim, but against better competition, the lack of strength is visible, that’s an area of development for him at the next level.

He'll enjoy hearing his name repeatedly during Marquette's pregame video.
