NEW YORK (AP) Villanova is the unanimous choice by the coaches to win the Big East championship.

The Wildcats have four starters returning from the team that won the conference's regular-season title and finished 29-5. Villanova set a school record with its 16 conference wins and earned its first outright crown since 1981-82.

Georgetown was picked second, the Big East announced Wednesday, with preseason player of the year D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera leading the way. The Hoyas received the other first-place vote since coaches can't pick their own team and edged St. John's by two points in the poll.
