BIG EAST Conference report Nov. 29

The Big East has had a great start to the season. There have been several big wins in the conference which will pay huge dividends as the season goes on. Once thought to be a 3 bid league, now looks like a 5/6 bid league going forward.

UCONN- The Huskies won 2 of 3 in the Battle for Atlantis. Wins over Auburn and VCU are good for the resume

Xavier- The Musketeers picked up two nice wins over Ohio St and Virginia Tech

Seton Hall- Road win at Michigan is a big win for the Pirates

Marquette- 3 solid wins vs Illinois, Ole Miss and West Virginia help Marquette into our bracket this week

Creighton- The Blue Jays need to get some quality wins to stay in the bracket.

Providence- a nice road win at Wisconsin is looking good. Only loss is to Virginia
