Big East Ballot- Week 2

Team Rankings-

  1. Georgetown
  2. Pittsburgh
  3. Marquette
  4. Louisville
  5. Connecticut
  6. Syracuse
  7. Villanova
  8. Providence
  9. West Virginia
  10. St. John's
  11. Seton Hall
  12. Notre Dame
  13. Rutgers
  14. Cincinnati
  15. DePaul
  16. South Florida
Player of the Week- Luke Harangody- Notre Dame
Freshman of the Week- Donte Greene- Syracuse

Still way too early for these rankings to mean anything of substance. Seton Hall has a better record than Notre Dame (they're undefeated, in fact), but only defeated Monmouth by 8. Are the Irish the 12th best team in the conference? No, but you can't rank them ahead of teams with better records. Things should shake out over the next month, but the conference games head-to-head are what matter.

Bamm-Bamm gets the nod over Brian Laing from Seton Hall for player of the week. Laing scored 27 and 25 against Navy and Virginia, with 19 rebounds between the two games, but Luke scored 22 and 25 against Georgia Tech and Youngstown St, with 24 total boards. Though Seton Hall won both of the games with Laing's big performances, Harangody single-handedly kept the Irish in the contest against the Yellow Jackets.
