USF picked third in Big East preseason media poll



Greetings from Newport, R.I., and the Hotel Viking, where the league's eight coaches and select players will meet with the media this morning for the conference's annual preseason media gathering. The first news is always the same here -- the league's preseason media poll has been released, and USF has been picked to finish third in the conference, behind West Virginia and Pittsburgh.


USF got a single first-place vote, with West Virginia taking 21 of the 24 and Pittsburgh getting the other two. After those three, it's Syracuse, Cincinnati, Connecticut, Louisville and Rutgers.

For full disclosure, I had a ballot in the poll and had USF second on mine, behind West Virginia. Lots more coming, so keep checking back here and on
