The St. John's SB Nation site Rumble in the Garden has been hosting a Big East Basketball blogger roundtable which has now wrapped up. If you haven't seen this series yet, there is a lot for you to catch up on before the next series as this one was a 5-parter.
focused on the biggest loss for each program. You could have guessed that UConn was going to miss Kemba Walker
, but how about Corey Stokes
over Corey Fisher
for Villanova? Part Two
dove into which player for each team needs to emerge for their squads. The third part
came up with some names of surprise players. Mike Marra
was named as a surprise player for Louisville, which was not what I expected. There are probably some other names you didn't expect either on this list. Part Four
listed newcomer players bloggers were excited to see. There are plenty of guys you don't probably know about in this section. For my money, it was the most interesting part of the whole series. The closing section
tabbed players as the future of the program. For Cincinnati, it was the entire incoming class. Cleveland Melvin
and Brandon Young are obviously DePaul's future, but what about Marquette? Would it surprise you to hear that their player of the future is not a guard?
