The announce teams for the first weekend of Big East college basketball games has been revealed. Per a FOX Sports press release, the full slate is no longer under wraps, and from the looks of it, there are very few surprises.
Here the teams are, in full, with their corresponding game:
|NJIT vs. St. John's||Justin Kutcher, Jim Spanarkel|
|Northern Arizona vs. Xavier||Steve Physioc, Tarik Turner|
|Lehigh vs. No. 12 Villanova||Scott Graham, Bob Wenzel|
|Central Arkansas vs. Creighton||Mike Corey, Nick Bahe|
|UT Martin vs. Marquette||Wayne Larrivee, Dickey Simpkins|
|UIC vs. DePaul||Jeff Levering, Corey Williams|
|St. Francis (NY) vs. Georgetown||Scott Graham, Ron Thompson|
|Maine vs. Butler||Steve Physioc, Tarik Turner|
|Albany vs. Providence||Brian Custer, Vin Parise|
|Mercer vs. Seton Hall||Justin Kutcher, Jim Spanarkel|
|Chicago State vs. Creighton||Mike Corey, Nick Bahe|
Justin Kutcher appears to be the man in the NY/NJ area for the moment, and good ol' Wayne Larrivee is continuing to be stationed up in Wisconsin. Other than that, as noted before, none of this is all that surprising.
We'll have consistent media updates for you the rest of the season. Stay tuned, folks.
