 NEW YORK (AP) -Georgetown, with four starters back from its Final Four team, and Louisville, which returns its top seven scorers from a 24-10 team, were selected as co-favorites in the Big East preseason coaches poll Wednesday.
Roy Hibbert, the 7-foot-2 center who decided to return to Georgetown for his senior season, was chosen the preseason player of the year. He and Villanova guard Scottie Reynolds, the league's rookie of the year last season, were the only unanimous selections to the preseason all-conference team.
Georgetown lost Jeff Green, last season's conference player of the year as a junior, from the team that won the league's regular-season and tournament titles. The Hoyas finished 30-7 and lost to Ohio State in the national semifinals.
Georgetown and Louisville both received eight first-place votes and 217 points in the balloting of the league's 16 coaches.
Marquette was third followed by Pittsburgh, Syracuse, Connecticut, Villanova and Providence in the top half of the league. Notre Dame was ninth followed by West Virginia, DePaul, Cincinnati, Seton Hall, St. John's, Rutgers and South Florida.
Centers David Padgett of Louisville and Kentrell Gransberry of South Florida and Georgetown guard Jonathan Wallace were the other seniors chosen to the 11-man preseason team.
Marquette teammates Dominic James and Jerel McNeal were among the six juniors selected along with Jeff Adrien of Connecticut, Terrence Williams of Louisville, Geoff McDermott of Providence and Eric Devendorf of Syracuse.
Syracuse teammates Donte Greene and Jonny Flynn were chosen as co-preseason rookies of the year.
