College Basketball – Big East, March Madness

March 1, 2010

There is no doubt that The Big East is “the” conference this year in men’s college basketball. Top to bottom, the conference may be the strongest it’s ever been.

Eash of the top four teams are looking at having high seeds and playing somewhere close to home during March Madness. That is a big advantage, and one that will be appreciated coming off a murderous conference schedule.

The Syracuse Orange are well-coached and loaded with talent, and the Pittsburgh Panthers can throw a scare into anyone. The West Virginia Mountaineers under Bob Huggins could go deep in the tournament, and the Georgetown Hoyas already have beaten some giants this season and are looking for more.

What separates The Big East from all the other major conferences is the next group of teams, all of whom are NCAA Tournament worthy so don’t forget to check out the NCAAB Odds.

This group includes the Villanova Wildcats, Louisville Cardinals, Cincinnati Bearcats, Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Marquette Golden Eagles. Chances are at least one of these teams may not be in the field of 65.

Notre Dame currently has a losing record in the conference and is on the bubble. Marquette could be on the bubble as well, or possibly the last team in, but as long as they maintain a winning record in The Big East and don’t have any bad losses, they should be in.

Teams needing help fast include the UConn Huskies and the Seton Hall Pirates.
