How many NCAA Tournament teams from the Big East?

As we begin to approach March Madness, the annual question begins to come up... how many teams are going to make the tournament out of the Big East? It was a conference that was expected to be down a bit at the beginning of the season, but it has been as strong as ever.

There are, of course, a few locks to make it in. Syracuse, West Virginia, and Villanova have been in the top 10 for most of the season, and they will be dancing. Pittsburgh has also been ranked for much of the season, and their ticket appears to be punched. Ditto for Georgetown.

After that, I wouldn't want to be setting any college basketball betting lines for how things will shake out.

Connecticut looked like it would have a tough time getting in as recent as a couple weeks ago, but they have made some big statement wins. They have wins over West Virginia and Villanova, but they are also only 7-9 in the Big East.

UConn will be hurt by their loss to fellow bubble contender Louiville, improving the Cardinals to 10-6 in the conference. They look like they will be in after their win over the Huskies.

Similarly, Marquette beating Seton Hall on Sunday might have been close to a play-in game, as both teams are right on the bubble. Marquette won 84-83 in OT, improving them to 10-6 in the conference, while the Pirates fell to 7-9. While Marquette has a middling RPI, their 10 conference wins (and counting) will be difficult to ignore.

Most penciled Notre Dame out of the tournament when Luke Harangody went down with injury, but they have played very well without him. They scored two big wins against Pittsburgh and Georgetown in the past week, and have a great chance of playing themselves into the tournament at the end of the regular season.

Cincinnati and South Florida have had their moments throughout the year, but I am not sure that their overall body of work will be enough to get them in.

As of now, I see 9 Big East teams in the Tournament:
Syracuce
Villanova
West Virginia
Georgetown
Pittsburgh
Connecticut
Louisville
Notre Dame
Marquette

What do you think?

We hear of the mbt shoes clearance masque no more.Some time elapsed, after the death of our author, before any of his later productions appeared : two small editions of his minor pieces were at length sent to the press in 1640, coach bags outlet and in the subsequent year a wretched reprint of the first folio, and a second volume of the same km-, containing his dramatic pieces from 1612, several masques, and all that could be found of his occasional poetry, coach outlet coupon were published together. Several of the comedies appear to have been taken from the prompter's book, and surreptitiously printed (but not published) during the author's life; how the rest were procured I know not. cheap coach purses Such of his dramas as were revived at the Restoration were printed separately ; and in 1692 the whole of his writings were again collected, and published in one huge folio volume. The demand for his works must have been considerable for those days, since in mbt trainers 1716 the booksellers were encouraged to prepare another edition, which they gave the world in six volumes 8ro. This publication was merely a reprint of the old copy, and with this, defective as it was, the town was content till the year 1756, cheap coach bags when a more complete edition, in seven volumes, 8vo, was published by the Rev. Peter Whalley, LL. B.Mr. Whalley had received an academical education, and he was competent, in some measure, to the undertaking. He did little, however, for the poet ; the form of five finger shoes the old editions was rigidly observed, and though a few notes were subjoined, they were seldom of material import, and never explanatory of the author's general views, though they occasionally touched on his language. It is not a little remarkable that this gentleman, who was master of the Grammar School 5 finger shoes of Christ's Hospital, and must naturally have been somewhat conTenant with the ancient writers, should not have ventured on one remark of a literary nature, every thing of this kind, which occurs in his edition, being, coach outlet store online as I discovered with some surprise, taken from Upton and others.Whether Whalley was diffident of himself, or the gentlemen volunteered their assistance, I have no means of knowing ; but he availed himself occasionally of the aid coach purses outlet of Sympson and Scward, (the editors of Beaumont and Fletcher,) who led him astray, and where he would have been simply wrong, if left to himself, rendered him absurd. In one pleasant way of making notes, and swelling the bulk of the book, they all agreed.

The most we got from the country star was that her Coach shoes outlet rumored boyfriend's latest movie "Love & Other Drugs" was "good."
