Big East Basketball Standings 2012: Georgetown Finishes In Fifth Place After Loss To Marquette

The final 2012 Big East basketball standings are out, and Georgetown's loss to Marquette on Saturday proved costly. The defeat put the Hoyas in a three-way tie for fourth place in the conference with Cincinnati and South Florida, and the Bearcats earned the tiebreaker on account of a better record against Seton Hall, the highest-finishing team against which Georgetown and Cincinnati had different records. That allowed the Bearcats to earn the final double-bye in the 2012 Big East Tournament.

Here are the final Big East standings.

  1. Syracuse: 17-1 (30-1)
  2. Marquette: 14-4 (25-6)
