Big East Media Day

Today is the Big East conference's Basketball Media Day in New York City. What we know so far...

  • 'Nova picked #5 in the Coaches' Poll
  • Scottie Reynolds- Pre-Season All Conference

Dwayne Anderson, Shane Clark, Dante Cunningham, and Scottie Reynolds are in attendance.

Jeff Goodman had this little blurb on Shane Clark...


No one really knew what was wrong with Shane Clark last season. His numbers basically remained the same and the Villanova forward struggled in conference play.

``I just hit a wall,” Clark said. “I was exhausted.”

``In the fourth game of the Big East schedule, I was done,” he added.

Clark said he’s eating better and proclaimed himself in the “best shape of his life.”

Clark has gained 15 pounds and will play at around 215 this season.
