The Big East released its preseason coaches’ poll this week, and DePaul was tabbed to finish last in the 10-team conference.

The Blue Demons lost their top two scorers from last season, Cleveland Melvin and Brandon Young. But they return a pair of promising sophomores in point guard Billy Garrett Jr. and forward Tommy Hamilton IV.
