BIG EAST Conference Report Jan 13
The Big East is playing some very compelling basketball. Almost every match up is must watch television. These teams will continue to rack up quality wins and build good NCAA resumes.
Villanova – The Wildcats are 12-4 with a quad 1 record of 4-4. What’s really impressive is the 5 road wins and the strength of schedule. Villanova is a likely 2 seed at the moment.

Xavier – The Musketeers have played well all year. At 12-2 and 3-3 in quad 1 Xavier is in good position. They currently are a likely 5 seed.
Seton Hall- The Pirates are 10-3 and a likely 5 seed with 3 quad 1 wins and no losses outside of quad 1
Providence- 14-2 with 4 quad 1 wins. Some of their big wins came against teams at less than full strength so they will need to continue to win big games going forward. They are a likely 7 seed.
UConn- Their metrics are solid right now. They have lost 4 games but are in the 6/7 seed range with a solid NET ranking.
