    Newsday: Gloomy Forecast Doesn't Phase Anderson


    In the preseason poll of Big East coaches that was released Thursday, when the conference held its media day at Madison Square Garden, St. John’s was picked ninth of 10 teams. First-year coach Mike Anderson not only didn’t take it as an insult but was fine with the forecast. “Everywhere I’ve been, we were picked at the bottom when I came in,” said Anderson, who hasn’t had a losing season in his 17 years at UAB, Missouri and most recently Arkansas. “We were picked somewhere at the bottom and somehow we didn’t end up at the bottom.” The Big East is shaping up to be one of the nation’s toughest conferences this season with a slew of returning starters. And given St. John’s circumstances, it’s easy to see why it was placed ahead of only DePaul.
    "He's a little bit ball-dominant, he needs to have the ball in his hands, and he's not a good shooter." Ball-dominant … isn't that a nice way of calling someone a ball hog? Where is my Jay Bilas Thesaurus?

    DePaul 10th? Not this year. Not only should they finish ahead of the Johnnies, it wouldn't be a stretch for them to finish ahead of Butler, either.
