UConn picked fourth in Big East preseason poll

Despite Justin's reminder yesterday, the annual Big East preseason has UConn in fourth place in the conference. This is the highest ranking UConn has ever received in the preseason poll. There must be at least one media member out there who is a fan of the blog, because UConn did net one first place vote, also a first for the school. The Huskies garnered 131 points in the poll.

Pittsburgh was picked to finish first in the league, grabbing 22 of 24 first-place votes, which was good for 170 points. Cincinnati and West Virginia tied for second with 142 points a piece, with WVU grabbing the final first-place vote. 

Rutgers (99 points) came in fifth, followed by South Florida (79), Syracuse (41) and Louisville (40).
