LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) – It's tough to get a group of 15 writers to agree on anything. But 15 writers that cover Big East basketball, including me, agree that Louisville is the unanimous pick to win the men's basketball title. Rick Pitino will have a day to react to the news.

Mike Waters of Syracuse.com posted his poll early this morning: Here is the link:

The top three teams:

  1. Louisville
  2. Syracuse
  3. Notre Dame.

The Big East coaches' poll will be released Wednesday at the league's media gathering in New York City. Waters will release the all-league team, player of the year and newcomer of the year later today.

For the record, here is my ballot – with how they finished in parentheses:
