Big East and CAA polling
The CAA released its preseason polls before media day even started this morning; the coaches are still meeting with each other in the lower level of the ESPN Zone and the best part is over. Talk about ruining the drama. I'm ready to go home.
Anyhow, you can read all the results here, meaning I've been totally scooped by the CAA's web site. The key part:
1. Hofstra, 2. George Mason, 3. Drexel, 4. Old Dominion, 5. UNC Wilmington, 6. VCU, 7. Towson, 8. Georgia State, 9. Northeastern, 10. James Madison, 11. William & Mary, 12. Delaware.
Mason's Will Thomas was preseason first-team all-CAA, while Folarin Campbell was second-team.
And I just got a live report from Camille Powell up at Big East media day, although I'm guessing the Big East's web site has probably scooped us on this one too. Anyhow, since I got the ESPN Zone to loan me some crayons so I could take notes on my conversation with Camille, here are the key points.
In the official preseason poll, Pittsburgh was picked first and Georgetown second. In the independent media poll, featuring one media member from each Big East market, Georgetown was picked first and Pitt second. In both polls, Roy Hibbert and Jeff Green were chosen first-team all-Big East; in the official vote, they were both unanimous choices.
