I think Villanova will more likely lose to Creighton than Marquette in their next two. Should be 3 point dogs in both, but if we steal one, Marquette looks easier to shut down. Creighton has better guards and a much better home court advantage. Of course, we could just lose both! I've never loved the Big East more than this season. Every game is close to a toss-up.

So, Jay Wright has elected the option to get swept on this road trip Smiley The ticky tack first half officiating prevented this from being an interesting game by preventing Saddiq Bey, Markus Howard and Sacar Anim from playing large chunks of this game. And when all three went out, they finally decided to let the game be free flowing and enjoyable! The only problem is that left us without many offensive weapons, and Marquette's stellar defense turned it into no offense - great effort! Jay Wright better realize soon that Collin Gillespie is not a starting point guard for any respectable team and make Justin Moore the starter. Gillespie's defense will not hold up against serious competition.

DePaul's first two Big East games have been by far had the highest quality of play of the first nine Big East games. Devastating to come out of this 0-2. Absolutely heartbreaking today. They'll start winning soon, but I am getting concerned. The next four game stretch is brutal, so if they can't start it with a win in Madison Square Garden, things may start sinking for such a talented team and fast.

Power Rankings
Tier 1
1. Butler - They have a lot to learn about finishing, but I went into the conference season thinking they were a tad overrated. That is no longer the case. This team could win 13-14 games and deserves to be in the Final Four discussion. Blech.
2. Seton Hall - To think they are playing without MAMU! I think the defense is sneakily even better than Butler (and that's Butler's calling card!) The offense is a bit too chaotic.
Tier 2
3. Creighton - Clearly the best (only?) offense in the conference. I question whether they can win away from Omaha limiting their potential to perhaps an 11-7 team.
Tier 3
4. DePaul - I have some depth concerns, and I think they will struggle against very structured and coached teams like Villanova, Butler and perhaps Xavier whether there is a talent advantage or not. The chaotic style is fun but not build to win championships.
5. Providence - I went into the year thinking they had the most talent and most veteran talent. I don't know why it took so long to finally begin to show it - I thought having transfers practicing for a year would make for a smooth transition. Their shooting percentage has still been woeful, but they look a bit faster to the ball showing a sense of urgency...finally. You don't know exactly who is going to beat you on any given night, but Diallo, Duke and Watson all need more consistency if this team wants to finish in the top half.
6. Villanova - No defense whatsoever. No senior leaders. Only Swider, Bey and Moore are natural shooting threats. Very impressed with development of Samuels but he doesn't fit into the offense. Winning largely depends on the other team taking bad, quick shots.
7. Marquette - Very average on aggregate at just about everything. They can defend against smaller teams, and the offense is even streakier and focused on a single player than Seton Hall.
8. Xavier - The next week is going to be very telling given that they will have #2 and #3 in Cintas. You have to think they need to take at least one to build some semblance of a resume. The bench is a little thin, but they seem like they will grind out more than a few low-scoring games.
Tier 4
9. St. John's - Long Jumper Figueroa is making strides without Shamorie Ponds there - and he actually plays elite defense unlike the prior focal point of the team! I am still uncertain if this team could be for real or if they can beat any Big East team on the road - we'll find out in the next four days! The schedule starts easy, yet they could easily go 1-8/2-7 on the easier half despite taking the top team to the wire.
10. Georgetown - I was so optimistic. Yurtseven should be first team All Conference. Patrick Ewing keeps getting elite big men and no adequate support for them. Very sad. And now the Oklahoma State road win might mean almost nothing. Should've beat Duke. Shoulda, coulda, woulda had a win worth talking about.

North Carolina gets clobbered by Georgia Tech at home.  Unless there's a drastic turnaround after Cole Anthony comes back, I don't think UNC will make the tournament.

San Diego State is favored by at least 10 in their next 13 games. They will only be favored by 4 in their season finale in Reno.
