Big East Ballot

Black and Green goes on the road next week (more on that later), so here is the Big East according to me:

1. ND
2. Pittsburgh
3. Connecticut- Big loss to West Virginia
4. Marquette
5. West Virginia- Beating UCONN takes them up in the polls
6. Syracuse
7. Villanova
8. Providence
9. Georgetown
10. Louisville
11. Cincinnati
12. DePaul
13. St John's
14. Seton Hall
15.South Florida
16. Rutgers

Everyone else holds steady. Connecticut could fall a lot more this year. No one knows how they will produce as they continue to play good teams. ND gets the top spot by virtue of great wins vs. Maryland and Alabama and a sole loss to a very good Butler team.

Gonzaga dropped their third game in a row and finished 3-2 vs. nonconference ranked opponents. Nevada beat the Bulldogs 82-74 as the 18th ranked Wolfpack moved to 12-1. Florida is in a fight against UAB, coming back after being down 7 at halftime.

This week, Black and Green will be going on the road first to New Orleans for the Sugar Bowl and later to D.C. for the Georgetown game. Of course, that will mean I will miss watching the Louisville game in person, but I will do my best to post as often as possible this week.
