No respect at all:
The league’s three city amigos were picked eighth, ninth and 10th, respectively, in a voting of coaches and media released during the A-10′s annual media day Tuesday inside this Oceanside resort’s Boardwalk Hall.
Neither school had a single player picked on any of the three all-conference teams or the conference’s defensive team. Only St. Joe’s Jawan Carter and Temple’s Luis Guzman were named to the rookie team.
But don’t worry, Atlantic TEN actually is fourteen teams strong. So while they are predicted to suck, who knows really? The SJU Hawks are young, Temple is in flux, and LaSalle is young, short and without Steve Smith. The Big 5 will certainly be Villanova-tilted this season, unless one of the other teams just steps it up.
