NCAA Tournament
What happened to Providence? I saw they had a 15 point lead on USC at halftime but then ended up losing the game.

Anyway, the Friars had a nice season. The Big East coaches had originally picked them to finish 9th in the conference standings. So to make the tournament (4th year in a row) was quite an accomplishment.

RE: NCAA Tournament
today is a huge day for the big east. got 3 games and 2 of them are nova and Butler- absolute must wins. The big game of course is Xavier/Maryland.

tomorrow is the tough day- Seton Hall/Arkansas, Rhode Island/Creighton, and Marquette/South Carolina.

RE: NCAA Tournament
great to get 3 wins- but 2 of the games were pretty big mismatches.

Friday and Saturday are the huge days IMO....
Friday-
Creighton/Rhode Island
Seton Hall/Arkansas
Marquette/South Carolina
Saturday-
Villanova/Wisconsin
Butler/Middle Tennessee
Xavier/Florida St

Sunday if they win-
Creighton/Oregon
Seton Hall/UNC
Marquette/Duke

So the next 2 days are really important.

RE: NCAA Tournament
it still would likely be an upset to get an elite 8 team. Xavier gets Arizona and Butler could easily get UNC. Both obviously really good teams.

RE: NCAA Tournament
Butler and Xavier have made it okay. 3 teams in the round of 32 looks shaky. 2 teams in the Sweet Sixteen is about where we should be (10/75 BCS conference schools = 2.16/16).

RE: NCAA Tournament
Butler, Creighton and Xavier - the additions to the C7 to reorganize the Big East - have developed into the backbone of the conference. They are always reliable and steady to perform well when we need a team to. They have really allowed the Big East to remain one of the best basketball conferences in the country. t.

RE: NCAA Tournament
I love the Big East because it feels like a "real" conference. The "Power 5" have that same feeling at the core of the conference but have a commercialized feel and look to them (he core 10 of the B1G, the core 10 of the SEC, the core 10 of the PAC, the old Big 8, etc.). I know money talks, though. The Big East picking up Creighton, Xavier, and Butler stuck to the root of the Big East without selling out.
