Big East Preview and Predictions

Well the Big East looks to be the best conference in college basketball at the moment. It's very deep from top to bottom. As of right now it has 8 teams ranked in the top 25,  4 of them being in the top 11, Lousville falling from #3 down to #11 with there loss to Western Kentucky. Here's how I ranked the teams in the Big East.

1. Connecticut

2. Pittsburg

3. Notre Dame

4. Louisville

5. Syracuse

6. Villanova

7. Georgetown

8. Marquette

9. DePaul

10. Seton Hall

11. St. Johns (NY)

12. Cincinnati

13. West Virgina

14. South Florida

15. Rutgers

16. Providence

It's going to be tough to pick only 12 of these teams to play in the Big East tournament at MSG. All teams right now are over .500, it is still early but thats saying a lot for a 16 team conference. Conference play will be very intresting. A lot of good teams, it's hard to pick the winner right now. I'm a Lousville fan, so I'd like to say they have a great chance of winning, but because of all the tough teams it's hard to say. I can see 8+ teams coming from this conference playing in the National Tournament in March.

My Predictions.
