Ok, so Georgetown is no longer part of the 2011 Big East Conference Tournament, but if you have some free time over the next few days, the rest of the tournament is definitely worth watching. Particularly if you work in an office that has a very lenient supervisor-worker relationship. Let's recap yesterday's results.
UConn dismantles Georgetown 79-62
St. John's escapes Rutgers in controversial fashion 65-63
Cincinnati runs away from South Florida 87-61
Marquette with a slight upset of West Virginia 67-61
Here is the schedule for today's BIg East Tournament games.
UConn Vs. Pitt, Noon, ESPN: UConn did not look very good against Pitt earlier this year, but they have the double bye on their side, potentially. I know the double bye is supposed to be an advantage, but three out of the four teams that had it last year lost their first game. UConn has had two days to get into a rhythm while Pitt has been sitting on their hands. Maybe it will come back to bight them.
St. John's Vs. Syracuse, 2 p.m., ESPN: It will be interesting to see how St. John's responds to their controversial win over Rutgers last night. It could unite them, or it could distract them. Either way, Syracuse is a tough opponent and this will not be an easy game.
Cincinnati Vs. Notre Dame, 7 p.m., ESPN: On paper, Notre Dame should beat up on the Bearcats. But strange thigns tend to happen in the Big East Tournament.
Marquette Vs. Louisville, 9 p.m., ESPN: Marquette has probably earned a spot in the NCAA tournament with wins over the first two days of this tournament. But I'm sure they aren't satisfied with just that. Louisville is more talented on paper, but it should be an interesting game regardless.
