Otto Porter Alert: Big East Announces Player Of The Year Candidates

In a bizarre notification this morning that involves the picture sharing site Pinterest, the Big East revealed the eight players eligible for Preseason Player of the Year voting.

The eight players are listed below:

Shabazz Napier, Connecticut

Gorgui Dieng, Louisville

Otto Porter, Georgetown

Vincent Council, Providence

Peyton Siva, Louisville

Jack Cooley, Notre Dame

Sean Kilpatrick, Cincinnati

Brandon Triche, Syracuse

I would think that Louisville's Siva may have an edge in this voting given Louisville's expected performance this season, but it's nice to see Otto Porter getting some recognition from the Big East, especially after he was unceremoniously left off the damn All-Rookie team last season.

The voting for the award will take place among the coaches at the Big East Media Day on October 17th in New York City.
