Big East Linkage is a news roundup feature on BECB. Feel free to send us any relevant links, stories or posts you think might be interesting to readers at bigeastcoastbias at gmail dot com.

Bearcats grab local prospect - Basketball recruiting is hot and heavy right now. Mick Cronin and the Cincinnati Bearcats gained a commitment from 6'8 power forward prospect Devon Scott out of Columbus

Best Backcourts - John Gasaway of ESPN.com has a list of the best backcourts in America for the 2011-2012 season to come. Checking in at number nine on his list? Pittsburgh. (ESPN Insider Article)

Elite Camp Now Open - The NBA Top 100 Camp for the class of 2012 has released its list of players. This is regularly one of the nation's best camps and an opportunity for players to make a name for themselves going in to the 2011-12 season. Big East targets abound on this list of participants.  

Another Transfer for Pitt? - According to various sources, including ESPN's rumors page, Pitt could be the landing spot for Wisconsin running back Zach Brown. 

The Blessings of Beer - Oliver Luck believes that, in addition to making West Virginia more money, selling beer at games will actually help avoid binge drinking on gameday. 

Radical Changes - Tom Dienhart of Rivals takes a look at those offenses and defenses undergoing the greatest changes this season. His list includes West Virginia's offense and, oddly enough, Pitt's defense. We would argue Pitt's offense is undergoing every bit the same amount of change, but, it's still worth a look. 

Returning Experience, Does It Really Matter - Our very own Rumble in the Garden looks at just how important returning minutes played really is in determining a team's success for the following season. It's worth a look at several Big East schools return a ton of minutes while other, like St. Johns, will be entirely new teams in the fall.
