RE: Big East game thoughts
The fall of Xavier this year is one of the more remarkable things I've seen in some time. I know injuries happen, but they have fallen totally off. And really even early, it never seemed like this year was going like how you would think(remember the Missouri game really early being a 1 point OT game).

Losing Sumner was huge. Between that and Watson from Creighton, some teams had it bad this year with injuries. However, those injuries probably allowed the probable seven teams from the Big East to make the tournament (which is absolutely amazing for the league).

Xavier will be fine. They have really strong recruiting class coming in, along with an experienced team coming back next year.

The conference is really proving to be better than I thought it would be. It has become a real grind every night. The injuries really hurt X and CU, probably helping MU the most (4-0 against X and CU after the injuries). To potentially have 70% of the conference in the tournament after everything that has happened is amazing.

I think the only question in getting 7 in is will the committee view those wins vs Xavier and Creighton in a really diminished way? If so, Marquette, Seton Hall, and Providence won't get the credit they otherwise would have-and that could prove devastating... And actually Xavier in their win over Creighton(which is probably keeping them in the tourney right now).

If the committee views CU and XU as at large candidates as currently constructed, then the wins are should still be viewed as top 50 wins. CU does have a win over Butler after the injury, which should help them.
