Regular season

Season summary & highlights

  • Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim became the eighth Division I coach to win 800 games, when the Orange defeated Albany, 75-43, on November 9.[19]
  • Notre Dame forward Luke Harangody became the first Fighting Irish player to surpass the 2,000-point and 1,000-rebound mark, during an 80-70 victory over Idaho State on December 2. [20]
  • Syracuse won the 2K Sports Coaches vs. Cancer Classic, upsetting #13 California in the semifinals, 95-73, and #6 North Carolina in the finals, 87-71.[21][22]
  • Villanova won the Puerto Rico Tip-Off, defeating Mississippi, 79-67.[23]
  • West Virginia won the 76 Classic, defeating Portland, 84-66.[24]
  • Connecticut was the runner-up in the NIT Season Tip-Off, losing to #7 Duke, 68-59.[25]
  • Pittsburgh was the runner-up in the CBE Classic, losing to #2 Texas, 78-62.[26]
  • Marquette was the runner-up in the Old Spice Classic, losing to Florida State, 57-56.[27]
  • On January 11, DePaul head coach Jerry Wainwright was fired after a 7-8 start, and a 22-game Big East losing streak, becoming the fourth NCAA Division I coach to leave his position since the season began. Wainwright, who compiled a 59-80 record in five seasons at the school, was replaced on an interim basis by assistant coach Tracy Webster, who will remain until a national search concludes following the end of the season.[28]
  • On January 18, Connecticut fell out of the AP Poll for the first time since January 28, 2008, after losing consecutive games, to Georgetown, Pittsburgh, and Michigan.[29][30]
  • On January 20, it was announced that Connecticut head coach Jim Calhoun would go on an immediate medical leave of absence, the circumstances of his condition unknown, but unrelated to his previous bouts with cancer and heart issues. [31] UConn athletic director Jeff Hathaway insisted that Calhoun's condition was not career ending, and would not affect the terms of a four-year contract extension, agreed upon in principle in December 2009, but that he did not know when Calhoun would return.[32] Associate head coach George Blaney took over for Calhoun, and lead the Huskies to wins at home against St. John's, then-No. 1 Texas and DePaul, and four losses at Providence, home vs. Marquette, at Louisville, and at Syracuse.[33][34][35][36][37][38][39] Calhoun returned on February 13th for a home loss against Cincinnati, and has since kept quiet on the circumstances of his leave.[40]
  • Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim extended his NCAA Division-I record for most 20-win seasons to 32, when then-no. 4 Syracuse rallied from a 14-0 starting deficit to defeat then-no. 7 Georgetown, 73-56, on January 25.[41]
  • On February 27, then-no. 4 Syracuse clinched its eighth Big East regular season title and a no. 1 seed in the Big East tournament by beating then-no. 8 Villanova, 95–77.[42] The game also set the NCAA on-campus basketball attendance record, with 34,616 spectators packing the Carrier Dome.[42] Three days later they won the title outright, with a win against St. John's, 85-66.[3]
  • On March 1, Syracuse achieved its first no. 1 ranking in the AP Poll since the 1989-90 season, and its first in the ESPN/USA Today coaches' poll since winning the national championship in 2003.[43][44]
  • On March 6, Louisville upset no. 1 Syracuse 78-68 in the final game at Freedom Hall in front of an arena-record crowd of 20,135.[45]

Midseason watchlists

On January 4, the Wooden Award midseason watchlist was released, and included six Big East players—more than any other conference.[46] The list was composed of 31 players, reduced from the preseason list of 50. Newcomers included junior forward Wesley Johnson of Syracuse. In addition, six Big East players who were on the preseason list did not appear at midseason: Devin Ebanks, Corey Fisher, Jeremy Hazell, Samardo Samuels, Deonta Vaughn, and Kemba Walker. The list will be reduced to a final national ballot of about 20 players in March. [47] On February 24, the Naismith Top 30 was announced, and included newcomers Johnson and South Florida guard Dominique Jones.[48]

- denotes unanimous selection

Awardees are chosen by a simple ballot, in which coaches are not allowed to vote for their players or themselves (in the case of the Big East Coach of the Year). Coaches voted for Big East Player of the Year and Rookie of the Year from the first team and all-rookie lists, respectively.[80]

Notable members of the first team include Notre Dame senior forward Luke Harangody, who was named to the team for the third-straight year, Villanova senior guard Scottie Reynolds, who was the only player to receive a unanimous selection. Also of note was Syracuse junior forward Wesley Johnson, who was given no all-conference consideration prior to the start of the season, yet helped lead the Orange to a surprising eighth regular season conference title, and received both first team and Big East Player of the Year honors.[80][76] Notably absent from all lists was preseason first-team pick Deonta Vaughn, a senior guard from Cincinnati, who led the team in assists and finished second in points.[81]
