[BIG EAST MEN] Louisville, last year's NCAA Division I runner-up, and Connecticut were chosen to win their respective divisional titles in the 2011 East East.

Connecticut’s Tony Cascio and Louisville’s Colin Rolfe, both seniors, were selected as Big East Preseason Co-Offensive Players of the Year. Louisville's Austin Berry was selected as the Preseason Defensive Player of the Year and teammate Andre Boudreaux was chosen as the Preseason Goalkeeper of the Year.

In the Red Division, Louisville was selected as the unanimous favorite to win the divisional crown. The Cardinals were undefeated last season until the title game of the NCAA Tournament against Akron.

In the Blue Division, Connecticut is the preseason favorite with 110 points. Besides Cascio, a first-team All-American selection in 2010, the Huskies also return sophomore defender Andrew Jean-Baptiste, who started all 20 games for the Huskies last year, and junior forward Carlos Alvarez, who had a team-high 14 assists.
 
USF and Notre Dame were chosen to finish second in the Red and Blue Divisions.
