Big East Coaches Provide Kris Joseph With Motivation

The Big East Media presented their preseason picks yesterday. Today, the Big East Coaches did the same. For the most part, it's the same deal. Pitt is No. 1, Villanova No. 2 and Syracuse No. 3. Austin Freeman is your Player of the Year and Fab Melo is your Rookie of the Year.

There is one glaring difference, however, when it comes to the Preseason All-Conference Team. The first-team, which even includes six players for some dumb reason, does not include SU's Kris Joseph. The guy who received two POY votes from the media doesn't even get on the first-team with the coaches.

KrisJo, if you were looking for motivation, here it is. The coaches you will be playing against do not consider you All-Big-East talent. Commence proving them wrong.

Rick Jackson makes an appearance on the Honorable Mention list, so that's nice.

Also, I know Steve Lavin had some success at UCLA seventy years ago, but what lunatic decided to give St. John's a first-place vote? And no, Lavin can't vote for himself. Anyone care to admit? (Update - It was Pitino.)
