Big East game thoughts
going to do this thread as a continuous thread with the games....

So far- Providence looks totally overmatched vs Xavier. Xavier not looking great, but PC looks terrible.

DePaul hanging in with Nova. Playing with a ton of spunk.

btw- others comments are most welcome. Since I'm on Mod over on the other place- this is where you can find me unfiltered(kind of like Skip Bayless).

um, what is up with this DePaul/Nova game? Nova looked like they were getting set to run away with it- up 12, and all of a sudden it's a 5 point game with DePaul with the ball. in a word, wow.

wow if DePaul were to pull this upset- it'd be DePaul's first win over a #1 team since 1952 when they beat La Salle.

wow Nova survives thanks to Hart. Garrett with a great look at a 3 at the buzzer that would have sent to OT.
Sunday will be fascinating with St John's and DePaul.

On a bad night for Nova- they made 81.2% of their 2 point shots. 13-16.

yeah a roller coaster 1st half- thought Georgetown was going to get run out of the gym early.

Tonight could have been huge for Georgetown- a win tonight coupled with what happened with Oregon would have been a great kick start for the Hoyas conference season. The Oregon game is just so huge now with Syracuse struggles and even looking further down the road- the UConn game won't help Georgetown out at all.

Guess sets up a huge Saturday- Villanova @ Creighton. Should be fun. And love that it's well placed before the college football playoff sf games.

and St John's gets the first upset of the year over Butler. I loved Mullin's strategy last 10 seconds fouling on purpose. More teams really should do that.....

going into game-
St John's RPI was 231
Butler's RPI was 12

end of the game
SJ RPI 189
Butler RPI 18

While some may be disappointed by the outcome and possible tournament chances for the league, I believe it was a huge win for the league. The league, long-term, needs St. Johns to be competitive, and last night proves that they are on the right track.

On any given night, any team in this conference can beat anybody.

yeah I really agree. And in a weird way, if it's going to happen to a team, you would WANT it to be one of the top 4 teams. It's not like they hung an unexpected loss on say a Marquette or Seton Hall who could be on the bubble.
