When it comes to the Big East, the best teams have the best players.
Pittsburgh and Georgetown, picked first and second in the preseason coaches' poll, each landed two players on Rivals.com's preseason All-Big East teams. They each had a selection on the first and second team.
After that, balance reigns - lending credence to the belief that the teams projected to finish in the middle of the pack are very closely bunched.
Connecticut, DePaul, Louisville, Marquette, Syracuse, Villanova are each represented with one selection apiece. Those teams were all ranked between No. 3 and No. 8 in the poll.
Even the talent on the All-Big East Rookie team is spread out evenly. Connecticut, Georgetown, Louisville, Syracuse and Rutgers each placed one player on the squad.
