NCAA Basketball: NCAA Championship-Villanova Parade Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Hello, and welcome to the first edition of the 2016-17 BECB Power Rankings!

This year we’ve sought the help of our fellow Big East SBN blogs.

In this edition of these preseason rankings, we received votes from:

Anonymous Eagle

Banners on the Parkway

Casual Hoya

VU Hoops

In addition, 21 staff members from BECB voted, amounting to 25 votes in total.

Here are the results.

(Note: In the future, there are likely to be comments. Since you’ve heard much of the preseason garb already, it would pretty much be repetitive. We’ll have comments next time around for the second edition)
