Around the Big East

Marquette crushed West Virginia at home, quickly dropping the Mountaineers to 3-2 in conference play. Dominic James gets my player of the week vote already with a 21 point effort on 8-17 shooting. James dropped 17 on UCONN earlier in the week. With those two wins, Marquette is starting to look like a more competitive team. After losing by double digits to Providence and Syracuse, the Golden Eagles have responded with two nice victories over ranked teams and will soon be ranked themselves.

Louisville and Syracuse won over Providence and 'Nova, respectively. DePaul also crushed Rutgers.

Pitt plays Georgetown on ESPN at 9. If you need a break from hoops, however, tune in to the NFC Divisional game pitting New Orleans vs. Philly. Both are feel-good stories. The Saints for obvious reasons and the Eagles for making the playoffs without their starting QB.

Seton Hall tomorrow.

hopefully MU turned the corner last looks like the injuries to Matthews and McNeal before the PC game took a greater toll than we realized at the time. In these last three wins, MU has displayed a much more effective offense and seems to have recaptured some of the toughness we saw back in November.

nice blog, btw. Just added you as a link over on our site
