2020 Big East Preview: It’s Wide Open

Season Preview

The 2019 season saw the Creighton Bluejays secure a regular season conference title, conference tournament championship and strong NCAA tournament showing that included a win over Oregon State (eliminating the host team) and over future national runner-up Michigan. The Bluejays’ success was driven largely by a conference-leading offense that loses four key contributors this spring, opening up the Big East to a competitive collection of potential contenders. Seton Hall returns an experienced club and projects as the most likely regional club entering the spring, while Xavier, St. John’s, Creighton and Butler all have enough talent to hang with the Pirates over the long haul.Our conference preview includes:
