Big East Ballot- Week 15

Team Rankings-
  1. Louisville
  2. Georgetown
  3. Notre Dame
  4. Connecticut
  5. Marquette
  6. Cincinnati
  7. West Virginia
  8. Villanova
  9. Pittsburgh
  10. Syracuse
  11. Seton Hall
  12. St. John's
  13. Providence
  14. DePaul
  15. South Florida
  16. Rutgers

Louisville has won seven in a row to stay tops in the league. UCONN's loss to Villanova kills a ten point streak and drops them a spot. Pitt has lost three straight. Villanova has rebounded to win three in a row. Syracuse has dropped four of five. After Syracuse, no one is playing well.

Player of the Week- Kyle McAlarney- Notre Dame- Only two players scored more than his 22.5 PPG average in a single game this week. One was Weyinmi Efejuku, the other Luke Harangody. That's right, two of the top three scoring performances this week were different players for the Irish.

Freshman of the Week- DeJuan Blair- Pittsburgh- 14 and 13 against Notre Dame. 20 and 11 against Louisville. Two double-doubles against teams tied for first in the league. Not bad for the freshman.

No love for DePaul? They split with Providence and won at SJU. They've lost a lot lately, but have had a killer schedule too. They lost two hard fought roadies this week(Blew a big lead to UCONN). Everything else works for me!

That is where ND ought to be in the Real poll. The Ap Poll and Coaches poll,The Irish are Awesome This season! Their only not ranked higher because they dont play a lot of tougher teams then others do which isnt right at all.The Irish are one of the best in the Big East and by the way their playing this Season they ought to be ranked higher then they are in the real polls!
