2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide—3

BIG EAST Conference

BIG EAST teams won NCAA Championships in men’s basketball (Connecticut), women’s cross country (Villanova) and women’s soccer (Notre Dame) in 2010-11.

The 2011-12 academic year is the 33rd in the history of The BIG EAST Conference as the unique consortium marches on competing at the highest level with integrity and sportsmanship. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2011-12 year marks the conference’s seventh straight with the same 16-member group, making for the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. The BIG EAST Conference’s goals have always been the same. The outstanding performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are evidence of the league’s proud tradition of success. The league has always been able to boast that many of its best students are also its best athletes. The 2010-11 year was no different. Seven BIG EAST student-athletes were named NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winners, while 22 earned Capital One Academic All-America recognition. Maya Moore, Connecticut’s women’s basketball standout, won the NCAA Honda-Broderick Cup as the nation’s top female student-athlete and was chosen as the Capital One Academic All-America of the Year. In the athletic arena, BIG EAST student-athletes again enjoyed success on the national stage. The Connecticut men’s basketball team won its third national championship, completing a magical run through five games of the BIG EAST Championship and six wins in the NCAA tournament. The Villanova women’s cross country team won the NCAA title for the second straight year and the ninth time overall. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team won its third NCAA title, while BIG EAST teams reached national championship games in women’s basketball (Notre Dame) and men’s soccer (Louisville). The BIG EAST placed two teams in the NCAA Women’s Final Four for the second time in the last three years as Connecticut joined Notre Dame in Indianapolis, capping a season in which the Huskies extended their NCAA-record winning streak to 90 games. Individually, BIG EAST student-athletes won five NCAA championships, including an unprecedented four by Villanova’s Sheila Reid. Reid was the 2010 individual cross country champion, a member of the Wildcats’ winning indoor distance medley relay team and won the 5,000- and 1,500-meter titles in outdoor track & field.

4—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Louisville’s Matt Hughes, meanwhile, repeated as the NCAA champion in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA outdoor meet. Moore and Reid joined Notre Dame soccer standout Melissa Henderson as winners of Honda Sports Awards as the top performers in their respective sports. Moore also became the first three-time winner of the Wade Trophy as the nation’s top women’s basketball player and joined Villanova lacrosse player Brian Karalunas as winners of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. BIG EAST football maintained its national profile as a competitively balanced group. Connecticut claimed the league’s Bowl Championship Series bid for the first time as the Huskies shared the conference title with Pittsburgh and West Virginia. Six of the league’s eight squads went to bowl games and helped the BIG EAST post a 4-2 bowl record for the second straight year. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing – the University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, the University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top 35 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Cincinnati and Milwaukee. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one-fourth of all television households in the U.S. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 31 national championships in six different sports and 133 student-athletes have won individual national titles. In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. In men’s basketball, BIG EAST squads have won four of the last 13 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken seven of the last 12 NCAA titles. Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns

BIG EAST Conference challenges into opportunities to become stronger. The conference currently crowns champions in 24 sports. The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original sevenschool alliance. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broadbased programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its studentathletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization has had the good fortune to have outstanding leadership. The BIG EAST primarily was the brainchild of Dave Gavitt, who was the conference’s first Commissioner. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his

first year, he administered the formation of The BIG EAST Football Conference. John Marinatto, who had served as senior associate commissioner, moved into the Commissioner’s chair in 2009 and has continued to steer the conference on its path of success. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST studentathletes. The conference has enjoyed longstanding relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. BIG EAST men’s basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden. The women’s basketball championship has led all conferences in attendance for the past eight years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 student-athletes.

20 WINS REMAINS A GOOD YARDSTICK

When a BIG EAST team reaches 20 wins by the end of conference tournament play, it has an excellent chance of receiving an NCAA invitation.

2011-12 Preseason Predictions Gibbs Selected BIG EAST Preseason Player of the year Pittsburgh guard Ashton Gibbs has been named 2011-12 BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year by a vote of the league’s head men’s basketball coaches. It is the fifth time in league history that a Pittsburgh player has captured BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year honors. Connecticut freshman center Andre Drummond was chosen BIG EAST Preseason Rookie of the Year. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players. Gibbs is a 6-2 senior who was an All-BIG EAST First Team selection last year. He led the Panthers in scoring with a 16.8 average. He was first in the league in 3-point shooting, making 49 percent, and second in free throw shooting, hitting at an 88.9-percent clip. A native of Scotch Plains, N.J., Gibbs enters the season third on the BIG EAST career list in 3-point shooting percentage at 45.4 percent. The other Panthers to earn Preseason Player of the Year honors are Charles Smith (1986-87), Jerome Lane (1987-88), Brandin Knight (2002-03) and Aaron Gray (2006-07). Drummond is a 6-11 freshman center from Middletown, Conn. He also was chosen Preseason All-BIG EAST Honorable Mention. In addition to Gibbs, five players earned All-BIG EAST First Team recognition. The group includes a graduate student, three seniors and a sophomore. Notre Dame’s Tim Abromaitis is the graduate student. The 2010 and 2011 American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Men’s Basketball Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Abromaitis helped the Irish on the court by averaging 15.4 points and 6.1 rebounds. The 6-8 forward also is one of the conference’s best long-range shooters. He made 42.9 percent from beyond the arc last year. Darius Johnson-Odom is Marquette’s top-notch offensive force. The 6-2 senior guard averaged 15.8 points last season, which ranked seventh in the BIG EAST. In league play, he was even more productive, averaging 17.2 points. Johnson-Odom helped the Golden Eagles reach the NCAA Sweet 16 and finish with a 22-15 record last season. Syracuse’s Kris Joseph earned third-team conference honors last season after averaging a team-leading 14.3 points and 5.2 rebounds. The 6-7 senior forward also averaged 1.5 steals. Joseph helped the Orange finish 27-8 last year and No. 12 in the final Associated Press poll. West Virginia’s Kevin Jones has been a three-year contributor as a scorer and rebounder. The 6-8 senior forward averaged 13.1 points and led the Mountaineers in rebounding with a 7.5 mark. Entering the 2011-12 season, Jones leads all league players with 612 points and 364 rebounds in conference games. Jeremy Lamb is a sophomore guard who played a key role in Connecticut’s march to the national championship last year. For the season, he averaged 11.1 points and shot 48.7 percent from the floor while making the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team. The 6-5 guard was a standout on the USA Basketball U-19 Team that competed at the World Championships this past summer. The Preseason All-BIG EAST Second Team includes two seniors and three juniors. The seniors are Cincinnati forward Yancy Gates and Syracuse guard Scoop Jardine. The juniors are Connecticut forward/center Alex Oriahki, Louisville guard Peyton Siva and Villanova guard Maalik Wayns.

Previewing The 2011-12 Season Connecticut, Syracuse Tie for first Place In Preseason Connecticut and Syracuse are the co-favorites to win the 2011-12 BIG EAST men’s basketball regular-season crown in the BIG EAST Preseason Coaches’ Poll. The Huskies, who won the 2011 NCAA national championship, received seven first-place votes and a total of 209 points. The Orange, who finished last season with a 27-8 record, collected five first-place votes. It is the third tie for first place in the history of the BIG EAST with the last coming in 2007-08. The league’s head coaches do not place their own teams on their ballots. The Huskies, coached by Jim Calhoun, welcome back three starters, including sophomore guard Jeremy Lamb, a 2011-12 Preseason All-BIG EAST First Team pick, and junior forward Alex Oriakhi, a Preseason All-BIG EAST Second Team selection. Freshman forward Andre Drummond was named BIG EAST Preseason Rookie of the Year. The strength of the Orange in 2011-12 starts with senior forward Kris Joseph, a member of the Preseason All-BIG EAST First Team. Junior guard Scoop Jardine who led the BIG EAST in assists with a 6.1 average in league play, is a Preseason All-BIG EAST Second Team pick. Louisville finished third in the poll with 201 points and three first-place votes. The Cardinals return 11 lettermen including three starters from last year’s team that finished 25-10 overall and 12-6 in the BIG EAST. Junior guard Peyton Siva is a top all-around contributor to the UofL success. Last season, he averaged 9.9 points, was fourth in the league in assists with a 5.2 average and second in steals at 2.0. He is a Preseason All-BIG EAST Second Team selection. Pittsburgh is a solid fourth in the poll with 188 points and one first-place vote. The Panthers won the BIG EAST regularseason crown last season and finished 28-6 overall. This year, Pitt will depend on senior guard Ashton Gibbs, the 2011-12 BIG EAST Preseason Player of the Year. Cincinnati was placed fifth in the poll, its highest position since joining the BIG EAST in 2005-06. Last year, the Bearcats finished 26-9 overall, 11-7 in the league and earned an NCAA berth for the first time since 2005. Coach Mick Cronin welcomes back three starters, including senior forward Yancy Gates, a Preseason All-BIG EAST Second Team selection. Marquette, placed sixth in the poll, will be aiming for its seventh straight NCAA bid. Guard Darius Johnson-Odom, a Preseason All-BIG EAST First Team pick, will give coach Buzz Williams a proven scorer. Last year, the Golden Eagles finished 22-15 and advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 for the first time since 2003. West Virginia was picked seventh.

The Irish recorded the second highest win total in school history last year when they finished 27-7 overall and were 14-4 in the BIG EAST. Notre Dame will miss guard Ben Hansbrough, last year’s BIG EAST Player of the Year, but will lean on Tim Abromaitis who made the 2011-12 Preseason All-BIG EAST First Team.

Georgetown is 10th in the poll. The Hoyas will look to senior guard Jason Clark while finding replacements for Clark’s backcourt partners, all-conference players Austin Freeman and Chris Wright. Rutgers was tabbed for 11th place, the Scarlet Knights’ highest position in the poll since the BIG EAST became a 16-team conference in 2005-06. Rutgers, under second-year coach Mike Rice, expects to improve on last year’s 15-17 record. St. John’s is 12th in the poll. Under coach Steve Lavin, the Red Storm earned their first NCAA bid last season since 2002. This season, Lavin will have a team with only one returning scholarship player. Seton Hall was placed 13th in the poll. USF is 14th followed by Providence and DePaul.

All 16 Teams Will Come To New York The BIG EAST will once again send all 16 of its teams to New York City for the 2012 BIG EAST Championship presented by American Eagle Outfitters. The dates for the 2012 tournament are March 6-10. On Tuesday, March 6, seeds No. 9-16 in a pair of doubleheaders. The four winners will battle the teams seeded No. 5-8 Wednesday, March 7. The tournament’s top four seeds await Wednesday’s winners in the quarterfinal round on Thursday, March 8. The semifinal round is Friday, March 9. The Saturday-night final, a fixture on the New York sports calendar, begins at 9 p.m. ET. Conventional logic before last season suggested that it was important to earn a bye to the quarterfinals, as Syracuse (in 2006) and Pittsburgh (in 2008) were the only teams to win the BIG EAST tournament title by earning four victories. But Connecticut shattered that notion last season, becoming the first team in college basketball history to win five games in five days as the Huskies captured their seventh BIG EAST title.

BIG EAST Television BIG EAST’s unprecedented Television Coverage Continues 91 Percent of League Games Include an NCAA Tournament Team

The BIG EAST men’s basketball conference schedule has had two notable characteristics that have become the norm in recent years – all 144 league games televised and more than half on national television. For the upcoming campaign, however, after a season when the BIG EAST placed a record 11 teams in the NCAA Championship and Connecticut won the national title, an incredible 91 percent of all conference games in 2011-12 will include a team that played in the 2011 NCAA tourney.

In fact, 67 of the 144 league games will be between two teams that played in the 2011 NCAA Championship. Fifty-six of those games will be on national television. The BIG EAST has always been considered a leader in television. Twelve BIG EAST teams reside in the top 35 media markets in the country.

Some of the highlights of the current agreement: •   Seventy-five of the 144 regular-season BIG EAST games will be on national television (either on CBS, ESPN, ESPN2 or ESPNU). •   Each of the BIG EAST’s 16 teams will make at least three national television appearances in conference games alone. •   The 2011-12 season is the fifth straight in which all 144 regular-season league games will be televised. •   Forty-five conference games will be carried on ESPN or ESPN2. •   CBS will air five conference games and four nonconference games. •   ESPNU, which has a reach of more than 73 million homes, will carry at least 25 conference games. •   ESPN Regional Television once again produce the BIG EAST Network Game of the Week package, which is available to more than 40 percent of  the nation in approximately 43 million households. 

Some additional television highlights of the 2011-12 schedule include: Big Monday – The BIG EAST schedule on ESPN’s Big Monday includes eight games over seven weeks. The series starts with a doubleheader on Jan. 16, the Martin Luther King Day holiday. Louisville plays at Marquette at 3:30 p.m. ET and Pittsburgh plays at Syracuse at 7:30 p.m. Every team that appears on Big Monday this season played in the NCAA Championship last March. Cincinnati will host a Big Monday for the first time. The Bearcats will play Syracuse at Fifth Third Arena on Jan. 23. All games on the Big Monday schedule also will be available on ESPN3.com. Prior to the official Big Monday schedule, West Virginia will play at Connecticut on ESPN2 on Monday, Jan. 9. Four other conference games will be shown on Mondays on ESPNU. Wednesdays – Like last year, ESPN or ESPN2 will show 10 Wednesday games involving BIG EAST teams during the 10-week conference season. The Wednesday schedule begins Dec. 28 with Georgetown at Louisville on ESPN2. Thirteen different BIG EAST teams will be featured on the Wednesday games. Saturdays – ESPN or ESPN2 will telecast 13 BIG EAST games on Saturdays during the conference season. The Saturday schedule includes a doubleheader on the final day of the regular season, March 3, when Pittsburgh visits Connecticut and Cincinnati plays at Villanova on ESPN2. The BIG EAST Network Game of the Week package continues on Saturdays and Sundays. Sundays – ESPN or ESPN2 will carry four league games on Sundays, the most ever. On Feb. 5, Villanova visits Pittsburgh. St. John’s travels to Georgetown on Feb. 12. On Feb. 19, ESPN has a doubleheader with Syracuse at Rutgers on ESPN and USF at Pittsburgh on ESPN2. CBS SPORTS– The nine-game schedule on CBS features nine different BIG EAST squads. The first of five conference games will be Marquette at Notre Dame on Feb. 4. On March 3, the final day of the regular season, Louisville plays at Syracuse. Louisville will make the first two BIG EAST appearances on CBS when the Cardinals host Memphis Dec. 17 and play at Kentucky Dec. 31. The other nonleague games are Connecticut at Tennessee on Jan. 21 and UCLA at St. John’s on Feb. 18. The BIG EAST and CBS have been formal television partners since 1983-84, the longest relationship of any conference and national broadcast network.

ESPN College GameDay – The BIG EAST will be the only conference scheduled to host ESPN’s signature College GameDay series at two sites. On Jan. 21 in Pittsburgh, the Petersen Events Center will host the GameDay crew and the Panthers’ playing Louisville. On Feb. 25, Connecticut will be the host to ESPN and Syracuse at Gampel Pavilion. ESPN Rivalry Week – The BIG EAST again will own the most appearances on the network’s Rivalry Week. Nine BIG EAST games will appear on ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU. The week begins on Feb. 6, with Connecticut at Louisville in a Big Monday battle. Two nights later, Georgetown and Syracuse renew what is arguably the BIG EAST’s most storied rivalry in the Carrier Dome on ESPN2. Holiday Week – The BIG EAST league schedule opens Dec. 27 with two games. Pittsburgh, the 2010-11 BIG EAST regular-season champion, plays at Notre Dame on ESPN2. Providence, under Ed Cooley, the league’s only new head coach this season, plays at St. John’s. On Dec. 29, ESPN2 has a pair of BIG EAST clubs playing at home against non-conference opponents. Rutgers hosts Florida and Marquette meets Vanderbilt. ESPNU also has a non-conference battle that evening. It will televise Cincinnati’s home contest against Oklahoma. Louisville plays at Kentucky on CBS Sports on Dec. 31. Four conference games will be played on New Year’s Day, including Villanova at Marquette on ESPNU. Jimmy V Classic – The BIG EAST will participate in both games of this year’s Jimmy V Classic on Dec. 6 at Madison Square Garden. ESPN will televise Villanova versus Missouri followed by Marquette against Washington. BIG EAST/SEC Challenge – The BIG EAST/SEC Challenge will match 12 teams from each conference over three nights, Dec. 1-3. ESPN, ESPN2 and ESPNU will provide exclusive coverage. NBA All-Star Weekend Game – A BIG EAST game has become an ESPN staple on the Friday night of the NBA All-Star Weekend. This season, Marquette will play at West Virginia on Feb. 24.

2012 BIG EAST Championship presented by American Eagle outfitters The 2012 BIG EAST Championship presented by American Eagle Outfitters will be played at Madison Square Garden in New York City March 6-10. It will be the 30th straight year in which the Garden has hosted the championship event, making it the longest-running conference tournament at one venue in the country. The tournament will include all 16 BIG EAST teams for the fourth consecutive year. Seeding for the five-day event will be based on regular-season finish. The top four seeds will receive byes through two rounds of tournament play, while the Nos. 5-8 seeds will get first-round byes. The winner of The BIG EAST Championship earns the league’s automatic bid to the 68-team NCAA Championship field. Last year’s tournament was one for the ages as Connecticut, which entered the bracket as the No. 9 seed, did something that no one thought could be done. The Huskies, behind the clutch play of Kemba Walker won five games in five days, including victories against four top-25 teams, to win their seventh BIG EAST title. It is believed to be the first time in college basketball history that a team had played – let alone won – on five consecutive days, and it sent the Huskies to a run to their third NCAA title. Connecticut handled DePaul (97-71) and Georgetown (79-62) in its first two BIG EAST tournament games, but needed some late heroics to advance thereafter. Walker delivered the championship’s signature moment with his pull-up jumper at the buzzer to stun top-seeded Pittsburgh (76-74) in the quarterfinals and he followed with a 33-point performance in a semifinal win against Syracuse in overtime (76-71). Walker, who had 19 points in the 69-66 win against Louisville in the final, shattered the tournament scoring record with 130 points in the Huskies’ five games (an average of 26.0 ppg). He was the easy choice as the winner of the Dave Gavitt Trophy as the tournament’s outstanding player. The all-tournament team consisted of Connecticut’s Jeremy Lamb, Louisville’s Preston Knowles and Peyton Siva, Notre Dame’s Scott Martin and Syracuse’s Rick Jackson.

BEARCATS Preview the Big Picture:

After incremental improvement in the first four seasons of the Mick Cronin era, the Bearcats broke through in a big way last year, finishing 26-9 overall, 11-7 in the BIG EAST, and earning a No. 6 seed in the NCAA Championship. They defeated Missouri in a second-round NCAA contest before falling to eventual national champion Connecticut. It was UC’s first NCAA appearance since 1995. With eight letterwinners, including three starters, back in the fold, Cronin and the Bearcats are aiming to become NCAA regulars.

32—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Yancy Gates, the rugged 6-9, 260-pound low-post standout, was the team’s top scorer and rebounder averaging 11.9 points and 6.9 rebounds. His strong finish in 2010-11 helped propel the Bearcats down the stretch and into the postseason. Junior Cashmere Wright returns to run the attack from his point guard position. He averaged 8.9 points and 3.9 assists last year. Senior guard Dion Dixon is back with Wright in the backcourt. Dixon averaged 11.6 points last year. Another key returnee is 6-4 Sean Kilpatrick. As a redshirt freshman, he gave UC some critical offensive punch, averaging 9.7 points and 6.2 rebounds in a sixth-man role. The Bearcats also were helped by 6-8 forward Justin Jackson who appeared in every game and averaged 2.5 points and 2.5 boards as a freshman. Junior guard JaQuon Parker (1.5) also helped.

Who’s Gone:

Forwards Rashad Bishop and Ibrahima Thomas were solid frontcourt contributors last season. The 6-6 Bishop averaged 8.4 points and 4.4 rebounds. Thomas’ contributions came closer the basket. He averaged 5.8 points and 5.4 boards. Forward Darnell Wilks (3.4, 1.9) and guard Larry Davis (3.2, 1.4) were not starters but were in Cronin’s regular rotation.

storylines:

With returning starters Gates, Wright and Dixon, along with top reserve Kilpatrick, the Bearcats should field another strong squad. Cincinnati had always been a clawing defensive group and it maintained that reputation last season by leading the BIG EAST in scoring defense, yielding only 59.6 ppg. But the team made significant offensive strides last season, often

led by Kilpatrick. UC improved to third in the league in turnover margin (+2.60). A group of seven newcomers should have opportunities to contribute, though Cronin should not have to depend on them to be key figures.

HUSKIES Preview the Big Picture:

All journeys that end with a national championship are memorable, but the Huskies’ story last year was one for the ages. After losing four of its final five regular season games, UConn won five times in five days to win The BIG EAST Championship and won six more to take the NCAA crown. Guard Kemba Walker was the undisputed leader who won most outstanding player honors in both tourneys. Coach Jim Calhoun became only the fifth coach in college basketball history to own three national championships. Walker took his diploma and his skills to the NBA. What can the Huskies do for an encore? Walker was the only full-time starter to leave, so figure the Huskies to be a strong club in 2011-12.

Who’s Back:

Jeremy Lamb led the supporting cast last year, but he looks more than ready to accept a leading role. Last year as a freshman, he averaged 11.1 points and shot 48.7 percent from the field. In the summer, the 6-5 swingman was a standout on the USA Basketball U-19 Team that competed in the World Championships. Shabazz Napier also had an impressive rookie campaign. The 6-0 guard averaged 7.8 points. Both players made 46 3-pointers for the season and were named to the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team. Alex Oriakhi returns in the frontcourt. The athletic 6-9 junior averaged 9.6 points and 8.7 rebounds. He also blocked 67 shots. Forward Roscoe Smith started 33 games as a freshman and averaged 6.3 points and 5.2 boards. Two more sophomores, guard/forward Niels Giffey and forward Tyler Olander helped the cause last year. Giffey made 10 starts, averaged 2.2 points, and was a strong defender. Olander

averaged only 9.6 minutes though he made 21 starts. He averaged 1.5 points and 1.8 rebounds.

Who’s Missing:

Walker etched his name into UConn basketball lore with his leadership in the postseason run. A consensus allAmerican, he averaged 23.5 points, which was fifth in the nation in scoring. He was third in the BIG EAST in steals with a 1.9 average. Jamal Coombs-McDaniel, a reserve forward who averaged 5.6 points, transferred. Reserve center Charles Okwandu averaged 2.5 points and 2.8 boards while playing 15.4 minutes per game. Reserve guard Donnell Beverly was a steadying influence who saw 8.5 minutes per game and averaged 1.7 points.

storylines:

Even with so many returnees, the Huskies will still be a young team in 2011-12 dominated by sophomores. Lamb and Napier should emerge as standout performers. Oriakhi will patrol the paint. Smith and Giffey, who came on strong in the postseason, will make the Huskies strong at forward. Two highly-touted freshmen, point guard Ryan Boatright and 6-8 forward DeAndre Daniels, will push the young nucleus. Late in the summer, UConn added 6-11 freshman Andre Drummond who was considered by many to be the top prep player in the nation last year. He should make immediate and significant contributions. Despite last year’s youth, the Huskies maintained their stellar defensive reputation. They were first in the league in field goal defense, holding opponents to 39.3 percent.

BLUE DEMONS Preview the Big Picture:

As expected, the young Blue Demons struggled in BIG EAST play last season in coach Oliver Purnell’s first year leading the program. Purnell, however, has laid the groundwork for the future. Three freshmen made valuable contributions last year, including BIG EAST Rookie of the Year Cleveland Melvin. DePaul plans to give its incoming recruits opportunities to be a part of the Blue Demon resurgence. Purnell wants the improvement to start showing up in the BIG EAST win column.

40—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

DePaul returns eight players, including four who started at least 18 games last season. Forward Cleveland Melvin was the BIG EAST Rookie of the Year after averaging 14.3 points and 5.0 rebounds. Classmate Brandon Young made the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team after finishing second on the team in scoring with a 12.6 mark from his point guard spot. Melvin and Young were the league’s top two rookie scorers. Young also averaged 3.7 assists. Guard Jeremiah Kelly led the squad in minutes played (31.7) while averaging 7.6 points, including a team-high 50 3-pointers. The other starter returning in the frontcourt is senior Krys Faber who averaged 7.0 points and a team-high 5.3 boards. Junior forward Tony Freeland averaged 9.6 points and 5.0 rebounds

while making eight starts. Moses Morgan helped provide some offensive punch off the bench as a freshman. The 6-6 forward averaged 4.8 points. Overall, the Blue Demons return 79.8 percent of their scoring and 68.5 percent of their rebounding.

Who’s Missing:

Guard Jimmy Drew was a reliable contributor and a part-time starter. He averaged 6.4 points and was second to Kelly in 3-pointers with 41. Swingman Mike Stovall also was a part-time starter and averaged 5.4 points. Backup point guard Michael Bizoukas (1.3) transferred.

storylines:

Last season, Purnell got great production from his trio of freshmen – Melvin, Young and Morgan – and will look to a five-player freshman class this year to continue to build the program. Also, 6-9 sophomore forward Donnavan Kirk, a transfer from Miami (Fla.), will be eligible just before Thanksgiving. Purnell favors a team that can get up and down the floor. Some immediate help around the basket would be welcomed.

HOYAS Preview the Big Picture:

The Hoyas produced their fifth 20-win season in the last six years with a 21-11 mark last year. A wrist injury late in the season to point guard Chris Wright helped derail the team’s postseason aspirations. Wright and his stellar backcourt partner Austin Freeman picked up their diplomas. Both were four-year contributors. Coach John Thompson III will be looking to holdover guard Jason Clark and three other frontcourt regulars to help lead what will be a younger Hoya squad.

44—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Clark was the third member of the Hoyas’ three-headed backcourt. He averaged 12.0 points. The 6-2 senior has been a double-figure scorer for the past two seasons. Junior Hollis Thompson averaged 8.6 points and 4.4 rebounds while making 22 starts at forward. Senior Henry Sims is back at center. The 6-10 pivot averaged 14.1 minutes as a reserve last season and posted averages of 3.6 points and 3.2 boards. As a freshman last season, forward Nate Lubick made a good first impression by averaging 4.0 points and 3.5 rebounds while playing just less than 20 minutes per game and starting 13 times. He is a physical 6-8 forward who also handles the ball well. Guard Markel Starks is another Hoya who will be asked for more in 2011-12. As a reserve point guard behind Wright, he

averaged 1.5 points while appearing in 30 games. Sophomore center Moses Avegba saw limited duty.

Who’s Missing:

Freeman enjoyed a standout career. Last season, he was fifth in the BIG EAST in scoring with a 17.6 average and was an All-BIG EAST First Team selection. Wright was the speedy distributor who also scored at a 12.9 clip. He was third in the conference in assists with a 5.3 average and made the All-BIG EAST Third Team. Julian Vaughn was a solid contributor in the paint. He averaged 7.8 points and a team-leading 6.1 rebounds.

storylines:

It’s never easy to lose three starters, but the most experienced returning players – Clark, Thompson, Lubick and Sims – all have shown they can be good BIG EAST performers. Now, though, they will be asked to take on leading roles. With the loss of Freeman and Wright, Thompson may play a little more on the perimeter. Some freshmen will get long looks to offer some immediate help. In the backcourt, Jabril Trawick will be needed to help support Clark and Starks. Redshirt freshman Aaron Brown can help at the shooting guard and small forward. Michael Hopkins and Otto Porter, a pair of 6-8 newcomers, may be most suited to help at small forward. Closer to the basket, 6-9 Tyler Adams and 6-8 Greg Whittington will push to be noticed.

CARDINALS Preview the Big Picture:

The Cardinals began last season with no regular returning starters, without a vote in the Associated Press preseason rankings and an eighthplace slot in the BIG EAST preseason poll. But Louisville ended its season in familiar territory. The Cardinals posted their ninth straight 20-win season with a 25-10 mark, tied for third place in the BIG EAST and finished 14th in the final AP poll. They defeated seven top 25 teams along the way. Coach Rick Pitino begins the 2011-12 campaign with 597 career wins.

48—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Unlike last year, the Cardinals return a strong nucleus, lettermen and three starters. Forward Kyle Kuric emerged as a top-flite scorer, averaging 10.8 points and 12.6 in league games. He was third in the BIG EAST in 3-point shooting, making 44.9 percent. Guards Peyton Siva and Chris Smith are back. Siva, one of the league’s top guards, averaged 9.9 points and was second in the BIG EAST with a 2.0 steal average. He also was fourth in assists at 5.2. Louisville is hopeful that forward Jared Swopshire can return after he missed all of last season with a hamstring injury. In addition to the three returning starters, the Cardinals should be formidable in the frontcourt with junior Rakeem Buckles (6.8), shot-blocking sophomore Gorgui Dieng (5.7, 57 blocks) and 6-9 junior Stephan Van Treese. Six-four junior Mike Marra (6.4) is a 3-point shooting threat. Overall, the

Cardinals return 66 percent of their scoring and 73 percent of their rebounding.

Who’s Missing:

Guard Preston Knowles averaged 14.6 ppg and was a stalwart defender. Forward/center Terrence Jennings averaged 9.6 points, 5.2 rebounds and blocked 65 shots. Jennings was third in the BIG EAST in field goal shooting, connecting on 53.3 percent of his shots.

storylines:

The Cardinals appear headed to roll up their 10th straight 20-win season and make their 38th NCAA appearance. Last season, Louisville made 309 shots from beyond the arc, easily the most in the BIG EAST. The outside shooting should be strong again. Defensively, UofL was seventh nationally in steals with a 9.3 average and was 13th nationally in field goal defense, allowing only 39.4 percent. The Cardinals also forced the most turnovers in the conference (16.1).

GOLDEN EAGLES Preview the Big Picture:

Marquette is 6-for-6 in attaining NCAA Championship berths in its six seasons as a BIG EAST member. And last year, after compiling a 9-9 conference record, the Golden Eagles’ season ended in the NCAA Sweet 16 round after wins over Xavier and Syracuse. Coach Buzz Williams, in his fourth season, welcomes back three starters and seven lettermen from last season’s 22-15 squad.

52—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Guard Darius Johnson-Odom was an All-BIG EAST Second Team pick after finishing seventh in the league in scoring with a 15.8 average, though he did even better in league games with a 17.2 mark. Forward Jae Crowder is back after averaging 11.8 points and 6.8 boards. He was also second on the team in blocked shots (32) and steals (48). JohnsonOdom and Crowder are seniors. Chris Otule is back at center. The 6-11 junior averaged 5.1 points and 3.6 boards. Vander Blue showed promise as a freshman guard, averaging 5.1 points and playing strong defensively. Another guard, Junior Cadougan, averaged 4.0 points and 3.2 assists in a reserve role at the point. Sophomore Davonte Gardner shared post duty with Otule. Gardner averaged 4.6 points and 2.2 rebounds. Sophomore forward Jamail Jones saw limited duty.

Who’s Missing:

Forward Jimmy Butler was an NBA first-round draft choice. He averaged 15.7 points, 6.1 rebounds and was a solid defender, but he was just as valuable off the court as a leader. Guard Dwight Buycks is the other departing starter. He averaged 8.8 points. Forwards Joseph Fulce (3.2) and Erik Williams (2.2) played supportive roles.

storylines:

Johnson-Odom and Crowder figure to anchor the squad as the Golden Eagles pursue a seventh straight NCAA appearance. Under Williams, Marquette is known as a team that plays with great intensity. The continued development of Blue and Cadougan should make the backcourt an area of strength. Two guard hopefuls, freshmen Todd Mayo and Derrick Wilson, will push to be noticed. Forwards Jamail Wilson and Juan Anderson may have a little better chance at immediate playing time because the frontcourt is a little thinner in terms of numbers. Last year, MU led the BIG EAST in scoring offense in league play, averaging 73.2 points.

IRISH Preview the Big Picture:

Picked seventh in the BIG EAST Preseason Coaches’ Poll last year, the Irish significantly surpassed expectations. After splitting their first six league contests, Notre Dame finished in second place in the conference with a 14-4 mark. Guard Ben Hansbrough was named BIG EAST Player of the Year and Mike Brey took BIG EAST Coach of the Year honors. The Irish finished 27-7 overall. The win total was the second highest in school history.

56—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Forward Tim Abromaitis and guard Scott Martin are the returning starters. Abromaitis, who was named the outstanding BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete of the Year in men’s basketball, averaged 15.4 points and 6.1 rebounds. He is one of the league’s top longrange shooters, making 42.9 percent from 3-point range last year. Martin, who is also a good outside shooter, averaged 9.7 points and 4.8 boards. Eric Atkins showed promise at point guard as a freshman. Atkins averaged 5.8 points and led the BIG EAST in assist/turnover ratio (+2.56) while playing 25.4 minutes per game. Junior forward Jack Cooley emerged as an able contributor in the frontcourt. He averaged 3.7 points and 3.1 rebounds.

Who’s Missing:

Not only did Hansbrough give the Irish tremendous production, he gave the team toughness. Statistically, Hansbrough averaged 18.4 points, 4.3 assists and 3.9 rebounds but he also made the intangible contributions that all good teams need. Forwards Carleton Scott and Tyrone Nash were important support staff. Scott averaged 11.2 points and 7.4 rebounds. Nash chipped in 9.5 points and 5.9 boards.

storylines:

Brey will be looking for someone to step in the leadership role that Hansbrough handled so well last season. Abromaitis and Martin are good-sized perimeter shooters – both are 6-8 – who should continue to be quality scoring threats. Atkins should slide easily into the starting spot at point guard. Cooley will have the chance to increase his playing time significantly in the frontcourt. Junior guard Joey Brooks played only 7.6 minutes per game last season, but will be aiming for more action. Freshman Pat Connaughton is considered a quality wing player. Six-five guard Jerian Grant will begin his collegiate career after sitting out last season.

PANTHERS Preview the Big Picture:

The Panther streak of excellence continued last season. Pitt won the BIG EAST regular season title with a 15-3 mark, earned its 10th straight NCAA berth and finished with a 28-6 record. Under coach Jamie Dixon, the Panthers always seem to be able to put an experienced team on the floor that plays terrific defense. This season, Pitt has to replace three starters, but still seems to have experience at every position. Last year, some statistics helped tell the story. The Panthers were first in the BIG EAST in scoring margin (+13.0) and rebounding margin (+10.8).

60—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Ashton Gibbs tested the NBA Draft waters, but returned for his senior season. A first-team All-BIG EAST selection last year, Gibbs was the team’s leading scorer, averaging 16.8 points. He was first in the BIG EAST in 3-point shooting, making 49 percent and was second in free throw shooting, making 88.9 percent. His 102 3-point baskets also led the BIG EAST. Another senior, forward Nasir Robinson, is back after averaging 9.4 points and 4.9 rebounds. Junior Travon Woodall appears ready for a starter’s role at point guard. Last year, he averaged 6.4 points and 3.4 assists and finished second in the BIG EAST in assist/turnover ratio (+2.34). Six-nine forward Dante Taylor averaged 5.1 points and 4.5 boards in the regular rotation. Six-nine sophomore Talib Zanna was another forward coming off the bench last year. He averaged 3.7 points and 3.4 rebounds

while playing 11.8 minutes per contest. On the wing, 6-6 J.J. Moore (3.7) and 6-5 Lamar Patterson (2.6), a pair of sophomores, may battle for a starting position.

Who’s Missing:

Guard Brad Wanamaker did a little of everything for the Panthers. The captain was second in scoring at 11.7 ppg and fifth in the BIG EAST in assists at 5.1. He also rebounded at a 5.2 clip and played the typical rugged Pitt defense. Gilbert Brown was a quality small forward who averaged 11.3 ppg and shot 41.3 percent from beyond the arc. Senior Gary McGhee kept improving throughout his career and averaged 6.9 points and 7.7 boards. In league games, he shot a league-leading 62.1 percent from the floor.

storylines:

Pitt will miss Wanamaker, Brown and McGhee, but the streak of success does not figure to end. Gibbs is one of the nation’s best shooters and will team with Woodall to form an excellent backcourt. Robinson returns at the power forward position with the roles of Taylor and Zanna likely to increase. Freshman Khem Birch is expected to push for some immediate playing time in the frontcourt along with Malcolm Gilbert. Freshman Durand Johnson may push Patterson and Moore at the small forward.

FRIARS Preview the Big Picture:

Ed Cooley is Providence’s new coach and he has hit the ground running preaching dedication, discipline and defense. The Providence native says he has his dream job. His first Friar team has some able young parts, but it likely is a little ways away from being a well-oiled machine. Marshon Broooks, the BIG EAST scoring champion and first-round NBA draft pick, has departed. PC has no scholarship seniors on the 2011-12 roster and probably will start only two juniors.

64—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

The backcourt of Vincent Council and Gerard Coleman returns. Council, a 6-2 junior, averaged 13.7 ppg last year and led the BIG EAST with a 5.9 assist average. He also averaged 1.7 steals. Coleman, a 6-4 sophomore, averaged in double figures as a freshman, scoring 10.3 ppg. Both players have tremendous quickness and are extremely athletic. Forward/center Bilal Dixon, a 6-9 junior, has been a starter since he arrived on campus, but Cooley will want him to improve on his 5.7 scoring and 6.4 rebounding marks. Dixon often was saddled by foul trouble last year which reduced his playing time. Forward Kadeem Batts, a 6-9 sophomore, averaged 7.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in his first season as a starter. Forward Ron Giplaye, who averaged 1.6 points and 1.6 boards, and guard Bryce Cot-

ton, who averaged 4.0 points, got their feet wet as freshmen. They will be counted on for more contributions this year.

Who’s Missing:

Brooks averaged a league-leading 24.6 points which was second nationally, and did even better in league play, averaging 26.0 points which earned him the BIG EAST scoring crown. His 468 points in BIG EAST regular-season games was a conference record. He also set the league single-game scoring record when he poured in 52 points against Notre Dame. Brooks also averaged 7.0 rebounds. Reserve guard Duke Mondy, who averaged 7.7 points and a BIG EAST-leading 2.1 steals in all games as a top reserve, transferred. Reserve center Ray Hall (1.1, 2.1) graduated.

storylines:

Cooley will be trying to develop some chemistry with the numerous young faces. He also has five freshmen, including two redshirt rookies. In the backcourt, 5-7 Kiwi Gardner will push to get into the regular rotation. Closer to the basket, 6-9 Lee Goldsborough, 6-8 Brice Kofane and 6-6 LaDontae Henton will be looking to move in on the playing time of Dixon and Batts. Last year, PC was first in the BIG EAST in scoring offense (75.8), but 15th in scoring defense (75.3). Cooley will want that to change.

SCARLET KNIGHTS Preview the Big Picture:

In coach Mike Rice’s first season, the Scarlet Knights played spirited basketball. A 15-17 record was the final result, but Rice has the Scarlet Knight faithful excited about the future. He has only two starters returning, but has brought in the highest rated recruiting class in school history. Rice does not have a scholarship senior on this year’s squad, yet he expects his club to keep the positive vibe going and the wins to increase.

68—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Six-eight Gilvydas Biruta is one of the returning starters. The forward made the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team after averaging 9.6 points and 5.6 rebounds. The native of Lithuania shot 52.9 percent from the floor. Biruta was first among BIG EAST freshmen in rebounding, field goal shooting (.529) and free throw shooting (.723). The other starter back is Dane Miller, who was a BIG EAST All-Rookie pick two seasons ago. Last year, the 6-6 wing averaged 9.2 points and 6.1 rebounds. He is also a quality defender. Sophomore guard Mike Poole is the third leading returning scorer after averaging 5.6 points while playing 19 minutes per game as a rookie. Other reserves who averaged double figures in minutes played were forward Austin Johnson (16.3) and

guard Austin Carroll (10.6). Johnson averaged 4.5 points while Carroll showed promise as a strong perimeter shooter and averaged 2.7 points.

Who’s Missing:

Three starters were lost, including the starting backcourt of James Beatty and James Coburn. Both players averaged 8.8 ppg and played a little more than 32 minutes per game. Forward Jonathan Mitchell enjoyed a very good senior season, averaging 14.4 points and 5.6 rebounds. He was the only Scarlet Knight to average double figures in scoring.

storylines:

A seven-man recruiting class will have opportunities to help the cause right away. The competition for the starting point guard position could be a battle between two freshmen, Myles Mack and Jerome Seagears. Another freshman backcourt candidate is Eli Carter who is considered a combo guard. Six-five Malick Kone may push Miller at small forward. Six-nine Kadeem Jack joined the program last January, but sat out the semester. He is expected to be a prime candidate to start up front with Biruta. Six-eight Derrick Randall and 6-9 Greg Lewis are other frontcourt candidates. With no scholarship seniors and only two scholarship juniors, RU knows it will be young, but Rice believes the future is bright.

RED STORM Preview the Big Picture:

The first year of the Steve Lavin Era was a smashing success. The Red Storm finished 21-12, the most wins since 2002-03, with six victories over ranked teams, including four against foes in the top 10. Lavin took the program from a 6-12 BIG EAST mark two seasons ago to 12-6 last year. St. John’s finished 18th in the final Associated Press poll, marking the first time it qualified for the postseason as a ranked team since 2000-01. For the upcoming campaign, however, Lavin will have virtually a completely new squad with only one returning scholarship player.

72—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Last year’s roster included 10 seniors. With one other player transferring, only junior point guard Malik Stith is back as a scholarship player. He averaged 3.3 ppg while playing an average of 12.2 minutes.

Who’s Missing:

The Red Storm lost 10 seniors and freshman forward Dwayne Polee who transferred. Guard Dwight Hardy was an All-BIG EAST First Team pick and the BIG EAST Most Improved Player. He averaged 18.3 ppg, which was fourth in the conference. Forward Justin Burrell was named BIG EAST Sixth Man of the Year. He averaged 6.3 points and 4.9 rebounds. Swingman D.J. Kennedy, the team’s captain and leader, averaged 10.4 points and 5.6 boards. Forward Justin Brownlee en-

joyed a strong senior season, averaging 12.3 points. Guards Paris Horne (7.9) and Malik Boothe (4.1) joined Hardy to give the Red Storm a formidable and experienced backcourt.

storylines:

The good news is that Lavin and his staff are bringing in one of the nation’s top recruiting classes. The bad news is that they will only have Stith to lean on for experience and a few of the incoming freshmen did not qualify to be eligible. Lavin prefers an up-tempo game that pressures opponents defensively, but realizes that the margin for error this season could be very thin because of the lack of depth. Six-three D’Angelo Harrison is a combo guard who may find an immediate home at the off-guard spot. Nurideen Lindsey, a sophomore junior college transfer, is a top candi-

date to contend for the point guard position along with freshman Phil Greene and holdover Stith. Six-eight Maurice Harkless may be a prime candidate at the small forward where Sir’Dominic Pointer also will contend. Six-nine God’s Gift Achiuwa is a first team junior college all-America honoree who can play at power forward or center. Junior guard Jamal White, a transfer from LIU, also is available.

PIRATES Preview the Big Picture:

Coach Kevin Willard’s first Seton Hall team finished 13-18 overall and 7-11 in the BIG EAST. Twelve losses came by nine points or less. The Pirates were hampered when leading scorer Jeremy Hazell missed 13 games in the middle of the season. Willard is bringing in six freshmen this season as he continues to put his stamp on the program.

76—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Point guard Jordan Theodore returns to run the attack. A 6-0 senior, he averaged 11.0 points and 4.4 assists last season. Forward Herb Pope recovered from serious health issues in the off-season to average 9.8 points and 7.9 rebounds. His rebound average was third in the BIG EAST. Sixsix Fuquan Edwin was impressive as a freshman, averaging 7.9 points and 3.3 rebounds at small forward and shooting guard. Six-nine Patrik Auda also contributed as a freshman, playing 15.3 minutes per game and averaging 3.2 points and 2.5 boards. Another sophomore, 6-11 Aaron Geramipoor, saw limited duty at center.

Who’s Missing:

Jeremy Hazell was one of the BIG EAST’s top all-time shooters. He finished his career with a conference record 201 3-point baskets in league regular-season play. He also was first in steals in league play last season with a 2.4 average. Overall, he averaged 19.8 ppg. Despite missing so many games, he still made the AllBIG EAST Third Team. Dependable forward Jeff Robinson averaged 12.1 points and 6.4 rebounds. Reserve guard Eniel Polynice averaged 3.8 points while making seven starts.

storylines:

Theodore, Pope and Edwin are three solid pieces to form the nucleus of Willard’s second Pirate squad, but a group of six freshmen needs to offer some immediate help. Guard Aaron Cosby may be the most likely backcourt candidate to see extensive playing time. Sean Grennan and Freddie Wilson are other guard hopefuls. Sixfive Haralds Karlis joins the program from the Canarias Basketball Academy, the same team in Spain as Auda and Geramipoor attended. He is considered a strong perimeter player. Kevin Johnson and Brandon Mobley, who are both 6-9, will help Pope in the frontcourt. Johnson is considered more of a true center. Mobley can also step away from the basket.

BULLS Preview the Big Picture:

Last season, the Bulls were usually hanging in there, but a young squad had trouble finishing the job and getting into the win column in conference play. USF finished 10-23 overall and 3-15 in the BIG EAST. This year, coach Stan Heath welcomes back six of his top seven scorers and hopes that more experience, combined with the contributions of a couple of newcomers, can move USF up in the standings in 2011-12.

80—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Forward Augustus Gilchrist returns for his senior season. If he can stay healthy, he can contend for all-league honors. Last year, the athletic 6-10 forward averaged a team-leading 13.4 points and 6.1 rebounds, even though he was slowed by injuries mid-season. Sophomore Jawanza Poland showed some flashes that he can excel in the BIG EAST. The 6-4 guard was second in scoring with a 9.1 average while making 22 starts. Junior Hugh Robertson started every game. He averaged 8.3 points and 4.3 boards and played strong defense whether it was at forward or guard. Six-four Shaun Noriega showed some promise as a 3-point threat, averaging 6.4 points while playing 16.5 minutes per game. Ron Anderson, Jr., a transfer from Kansas State, averaged 7.0 points and 6.4 rebounds while making 18

starts. Six-eight Toarlyn Fitzpatrick is another frontcourt returnee. The 6-8 sophomore can play either forward position. Last season, he averaged 4.3 points and 4.1 rebounds.

Who’s Missing:

Forward Jarrid Famous was a dependable frontcourt player who averaged 8.7 points and 5.4 rebounds. He shot 51.1 percent from the floor. Point guard Anthony Crater averaged 4.0 points and 4.6 assists, which was seventh in the BIG EAST. Guards Mike Burwell (1.9) and Shedrick Haynes (1.0) transferred.

storylines:

Heath is looking for someone to run the offense and junior college transfer Blake Nash, who has three years of eligibility remaining, will get a long look to be the starter. The Bulls also need more offensive punch and hope that Victor Rudd, a transfer from Arizona State, can contribute immediately at the small forward. Rudd is a strong perimeter shooter who can also take the ball to the basket. Freshmen LaVonte Dority and Anthony Collins are freshmen guard hopefuls. Last year’s squad averaged only 61.7 ppg and shot just 41.7 percent from the floor and 29.9 percent from 3-point range.

ORANGE Preview the Big Picture:

The Orange compiled a 27-8 record last season which included a 12-6 BIG EAST mark. SU finished No. 12 in the final Associated Press poll. Those accomplishments simply add to the mountain of success in the Jim Boeheim era which has stretched 35 years. Boeheim has won 856 games, which ranks second among active coaches. He is 10th in winning percentage (.740). Syracuse has 31 20-win seasons, the most in college basketball history under one coach. For 2011-12, SU will have to find a replacement for forward Rick Jackson who was the BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year, but the pieces are in place for another stellar year.

84—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Senior Kris Joseph is another athletic wing player in a program that always seems to have a standout at that position. Last season, Joseph led the Orange in scoring with a 14.3 average. He also averaged 5.2 rebounds and was named All-BIG EAST Third Team. The backcourt of senior Scoop Jardine and junior Brandon Triche return after neither missed a start last season. Jardine averaged 12.5 points and led the BIG EAST in assists with a 6.1 average in league games. Triche averaged 11.1 points. Center Fab Melo started 24 games and averaged 6.4 points and 3.8 rebounds. Sophomore Baye Moussa Keita, an athletic 6-9 sophomore, started 10 games at forward and averaged 2.2 points and 3.7 boards. Sophomore C.J. Fair averaged 6.4 points and 3.8 rebounds in a promising freshman season. Ju-

nior James Southerland was another frontcourt contributor, averaging 4.9 points and 2.3 boards. Dion Waiters helped in the backcourt with a 6.6 scoring mark.

Who’s Missing:

Jackson averaged 13.1 points and a league-leading 10.3 rebounds. He also led the conference in field goal percentage, connecting at a 58.8 clip. Jackson was first in the BIG EAST in blocked shots with a 2.5 average. He was the first BIG EAST Defensive Player of the Year from Syracuse since Etan Thomas in 1999-00.

storylines:

The Orange appear to be very talented and very experienced, though Jackson will leave a void close the basket. After a slow start last year, Melo showed promise in the low post. Six-nine freshman Rakeem Christmas may have the best chance among the freshman to see some immediate playing time. The other newcomers are shooting guard candidates, 6-5 Michael Carter-Williams and 6-4 Trevor Cooney. Last season, SU lead the BIG EAST in field goal shooting in league play, making 47.1 percent. With Joseph, Jardine and Triche, the Orange should be more than capable of handling the BIG EAST wars again.

WILDCATS Preview the Big Picture:

Yes, the Wildcats turned in another 20-win season last year and made a seventh straight NCAA appearance, but their season ended on a six-game losing streak. If a team can feel like it has something to prove after a 21-12 year, Villanova may be that team. There are no seniors on this year’s roster and coach Jay Wright will lean on a group of four juniors to help soften the loss of seniors Corey Fisher, Corey Stokes and Antonio Pena – all 1,000-point scorers. In 2007-08, the Wildcats also had no seniors and that season ended with 22 victories and advancement to the NCAA Sweet 16 round.

88—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Six-two Maalik Wayns is one of the four juniors who figure to form the nucleus of the 2011-12 squad. The lightning-quick Wayns is the team’s top returning scorer with a 13.8 average. He also averaged 4.5 assists. Mouphtaou Yarou is the other returning starter. The center averaged 8.4 points and tied for the team lead in rebounding with a 7.1 mark. Six-six swingman Dominic Cheek played 19.4 minutes per game as a top reserve. He averaged 5.6 points and 3.4 boards. Center Maurice Sutton played 10.6 minutes per game and averaged 2.4 points and 2.3 boards. Sophomore guard James Bell may be slotted for a big increase in playing time. He averaged only 2.4 points after being slowed by stress fractures in both legs in the preseason. This summer, he played on the USA Basketball U19 Team that competed in the World Championships. JayVaughn Pinkston is back, though he did not play last season because of a violation of the university’s student

code. The 6-7 forward came to Villanova as a McDonald’s All-American and figures to make a strong bid for a starting position.

Who’s Missing:

Corey Fisher and Corey Stokes were the club’s top two scorers with 15.6 and 14.9 averages, respectively. Fisher also was tops in assists with a 4.8 average. Stokes was a prime 3-point shooting threat and made 89.4 percent of his free throws. Antonio Pena averaged 9.8 points and 7.1 rebounds as an anchor in the frontcourt. Forward Isaiah Armwood was an athletic forward who averaged 2.5 points and 3.6 rebounds while playing 17 minutes per game. He transferred.

storylines:

The 2011-12 Villanova squad may be a little less productive offensively, but a little stronger on the defensive end than recent VU teams. Despite the loss of three starters, the Wildcats are still a talented group with a good nucleus of players who have been through the BIG EAST wars. Wayns may be ready to become an elite player in the league. Freshmen Tyrone Johnson and Achraf Yacoubou will try to earn some immediate time at guard. Freshman Darrun Hilliard may contend with Cheek in the backcourt and on the wing. The fourth newcomer is 6-9 Markus Kennedy who likely will back up Yarou and Armwood. Some immediate contributions from Pinkston would be welcomed.

MOUNTAINEERS Preview the Big Picture:

The Mountaineers compiled a 21-12 record last year, which included an 11-7 BIG EAST mark and a win in the NCAA Championship against Clemson before a loss to Kentucky. WVU is 101-42 in four seasons under coach Bob Huggins and 45-27 in BIG EAST regular-season competition. In 2010, the Mountaineers won the BIG EAST Championship and advanced to the Final Four. Huggins’ teams in Morgantown have been to the NCAAs all four years. Huggins had made 19 NCAA appearances, which ranks fifth among active coaches. In 2011-12, the Mountaineers can build around two returning starters and some valuable reserves who are expected to accept larger roles.

92—2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide

Who’s Back:

Forward Kevin Jones and point guard Darryl “Truck” Bryant, a pair of seniors and 1,000-point scorers, are the returning starters. The 6-8 Jones averaged 13.1 points and a team-leading 7.5 rebounds. Bryant, a three-year starter, posted an 11.3 scoring average. Forward Dennis Kilicli also is back after starting 12 games a year ago. The 6-9, 270-pound Kilicli averaged 6.6 points and 4.0 rebounds. He is a skilled offensive player. Freshman Kevin Noreen saw action in seven games, but was granted a medical redshirt after an injury. The 6-10 forward is expected to offer more help this season.

Who’s Missing:

Guard Casey Mitchell was the team’s leading scorer with a 13.6 average, though he only started 17 games. Forward John Flowers averaged 9.2 points and 6.2 boards and was second in the BIG EAST with a 2.2 blocked shots average. Guard Joe Mazzulla averaged 7.7 points and led the team with a 4.2 assist average, but his career will be remembered for his leadership, toughness and critical contributions in the biggest games. Reserve forward Cam Thoroughman (2.7, 3.9) was known for his physical play. Forward Dalton Pepper (3.9) transferred.

storylines:

Jones and Bryant are proven BIG EAST performers and Kilicli has plenty of experience. There is a need to have some new blood fill in at the other positions. A large newcomer class of seven should have ample opportunity to be noticed and make some immediate contributions. Freshman Keaton Miles and Aaron Brown could help right away with perimeter shooting. Freshman Jabarie Hinds may serve as a backup to Bryant at the point. Rebounding and defense have been staples of the success under Huggins. The newcomers who show they can help in those areas likely will be in good favor with the head coach.

Coach Bob Huggins has guided his teams to an NCAA berth in 18 of his last 19 seasons as a head coach. 2011-12 BIG EAST Media Guide—95

BIG EAST Conference John Marinatto, Commissioner John Marinatto became the third commissioner of the BIG EAST Conference on July 1, 2009. He was the unanimous choice of the conference’s chancellors and presidents, who announced his appointment in November 2008. Marinatto follows Michael Tranghese, who had served as BIG EAST Commissioner since 1990, and Dave Gavitt, who served from 1979-1990, as the overseer of the largest and most diverse Division I athletics conference in the country. Already established in the world of intercollegiate athletics and higher education, Marinatto has continued to further his involvement on the national landscape since his appointment as Commissioner. He currently serves on the NCAA Leadership Council, Collegiate Commissioners Association, CCA Women’s Basketball Task Force, NCAA Value Based Decision Making Task Force, Men’s and Women’s Basketball Officiating LLC Boards of Directors, College Football Officiating Board of Directors and the NACDA Executive Committee. He has also represented the BIG EAST on the prestigious NCAA Management Council and the NCAA Finance and Business Cabinet and will become chairman of the Collegiate Commissioners Association Football Bowl Subdivsion in 2012. Marinatto brings a deep-rooted familiarity with the BIG EAST into his role as Commissioner. He had served as the conference’s senior associate commissioner since 2002 and spent 14 years as Director of Athletics at Providence College. His wide and varied experience on conference and national committees adds to his expertise. As the league’s senior associate commissioner, Marinatto had been the league’s Chief Operating Officer. He oversaw all administrative operations including NCAA governance, compliance communications, television and championships. Marinatto also served as the conference’s treasurer. Marinatto played a critical role in the creation and development of the strategic plan to reconfigure the BIG EAST into its current 16-member consortium. He has served on committees which have negotiated lucrative contracts with television partners CBS Sports and ESPN, Inc. in football and basketball and with marketing partner IMG. During the BIG EAST’s term as the lead administrator of the BCS in 2002-04, Marinatto served as the group’s Chief Financial and Business Officer. He also recently served on the BCS Fiesta Bowl Task Force and is currently a member of the BCS television committee. Marinatto’s connection to the founders of the BIG EAST dates to his undergraduate days at Providence College, when he served as a manager for a Friar basketball program that was coached by Gavitt and had Tranghese as its sports information director. After graduating from Providence in 1979 with a degree in business management, he served his alma mater as Associate Director of Alumni/Development. He also served as Director of Sports Promotions and Director of Sports Information before moving into the athletic director’s chair in 1987, shortly after the men’s basketball team competed in the NCAA Final Four. During his tenure as athletic director, Marinatto served as the BIG EAST Athletic Directors’ Executive Committee Chairman for four years, was the chair of the BIG EAST Finance Committee and the chair of the Conference Strategic Planning Committee. He also served on the BIG EAST Championships and Competition Committee. Marinatto has also served as Tournament Director to numerous NCAA championship events including the 1996 Men’s Basketball First and Second Rounds, the 2000 Men’s Frozen Four and the 2003 Women’s Basketball East Regional. Friar sports teams enjoyed significant success during Marinatto’s tenure of leadership, including the women’s cross country team, which won the NCAA Championship in 1995. Marinatto will continue to create the best possible climate for BIG EAST studentathletes to succeed academically and athletically through sportsmanship and ethical conduct while maintaining the tradition, identity and character conference laid forth by his predecessors.
