Big East Panty Raid

Tomorrow afternoon, a plethora of hotties from up and down the Eastern Seaboard will fill Madison Square Garden for the 25th annual Big East tournament. Only the top 12 teams get bids to the Big East tourney (sorry, USF, Seton Hall, Cincy and Rutgers) and the top four get automatic bids to the quarterfinals.

My Pitt Panthers have a three seed, a fact that makes me want to throw myself on the floor and writhe around in agony. The only thing stopping me from doing so is the fact that Notre Dame has a four seed. Ha!

Meet the Big East All-Hottie first team after the jump.

These facts are presented without commentary.

David Padgett – Center – Louisville. Padgett transferred to Louisville after putting in two years at Kansas and an appearance on the USA Basketball team. According to his bio, he thinks Kevin Costner would be the best actor to portray him in the biopic of his life.
Patrick Ewing Jr. – Forward – Georgetown. Some of you might know Ewing’s father, also named Patrick Ewing.
Andrew Ott - Forward – Villanova. Scored more than 1,000 points in his high school career at Germantown Academy, which was in the same league as my high school. If we ever meet at a cocktail party, we’ll have something to talk about.
Ronald Ramon – Guard – Pitt. Has a bitchin’ ‘fro. Bears a striking resemblance to my friend Eric, if Eric were tall, Dominican and not Jewish.
Weyinmi Efejuku – Guard – Providence. Nickname is Diddy. Though he is a native New Yorker, calls the Philadelphia Eagles his favorite team.

Also receiving votes…big Pitt center/Jim Halpert impersonator Aaron Gray, this year’s only Big East player selected to the All-Big East team for a second time…Connor Barwin of Cincinnati, who also plays football for the Bearcats and has really nice absStuart Miller of Louisville, who didn’t have a photo on Louisville’s web site, but we’ll assume he looks like this Stuart Miller.

  1. I was talking about the Cubs catcher Michael- but you are right that he also scarily looks just like Mr. Professor Barrett. WHOA.

  2. LA: something like that. While at the game yesterday, two Hispanic guys sat next to me. Before they even said a word, I knew they were Dominican. Later on, they were telling me that so and so (can’t remember which Met) is from Santiago, in Dominican Republic. I was all “uhh, I’m Dominican, I know where Santiago is!” Heh, they didn’t know.
