RE: Big East game thoughts
Saw from ESPN that tomorrow's Creighton/Villanova game is only the 2nd game ever in Big East history with 2 10-0 or better schools playing each other. The other was in 1985- but not what you may have thought. It was Georgetown vs Boston College.

RE: Big East game thoughts
as we enter this weekend- here's the standings and current RPI/Ken Pom rating for all 10 teams:
Villanova 1-0 13-0 #1/6
Creighton 1-0 13-0 #4/19
Xavier 1-0 11-2 #5/16
Marquette 1-0 10-3 #78/33
St John's 1-0 7-7 #188/96
Butler 0-1 11-2 #15/18
Seton Hall 0-1 10-3 #37/55
Providence 0-1 10-4 #45/66
Georgetown 0-1 8-5 #69/53
DePaul 0-1 7-7 #194/173

this weekend schedule
Saturday:
11am Xavier @ Georgetown
1pm Villanova @ Creighton
Sunday:
2pm St John's @ DePaul
3pm Providence @ Butler
4:30pm Marquette @ Seton Hall

1 thing that I hope doesn't happen if it happens is if DePaul wins, I hope folks don't get the narrative that oh well, that was just a fluke for St John's. DePaul played pretty damn well vs Nova of course and could easily have won it. So DePaul winning there wouldn't be the end of the world for St John's.

watching early today- Georgetown looks decent even though it's a 5 point game. The problem is Xavier looks a lot better than Wednesday as well.

1 thing I don't get....

Georgetown scored basket with like 8 seconds to go in the 1st half. Xavier had not used a time out in the 1st half, and if you don't use 1 you lose it.

Well, Mack doesn't use time out, and Xavier is left with a 40 ft shot with no chance of making it.

why not use time out there and get a decent shot?

Mack probably thought they could catch the Hoyas off guard and get a full court drive and shot as a result. Probably thought they thought that Xavier would use a timeout.

Great all around game. Xavier beats Georgetown 81-76

Another sell out crowd for Creighton. They have been a home run addition for the Big East.

after a fumble though it was clear that wasn't going to happen.

good win for Xavier. Georgetown played well. Lost chance. HUGE game on Wednesday @ Providence which could be quite frankly a must win for both teams. Georgetown gets Butler on Saturday and Providence gets Creighton on Saturday. So loser of Georgetown/PC game staring 0-4 square in the face.

Creighton off to a dominant start so far vs Nova. 17-9 and that's 5 minutes in. Only 2nd Big East game ever with undefeated teams. And 1st time with 2 undefeated teams in conference play in 8 seasons. 1st top 10 matchup in Creighton history.

First half has been everything as advertised. This will go down to the wire.

Sunday:
2pm St John's @ DePaul

huge uptick for Nova in Ken Pom...
pretty big drop in KP for Creighton
really interesting the big drop in RPI for Providence. 6 spots just in 1 day is remarkable.

Big day for me for Seton Hall tomorrow. You have to win those home games against the non top 4 teams.

And really going to be interesting with the St John's DePaul game tomorrow.
