Today’s question: How many Big East teams will be dancing?

0 Comments

The Big East appears headed toward 11 NCAA tournament bids. Our projections say so, and we’re in some good company.

Yet it you watched the Syracuse-Villanova game last night, ESPN’s Jay Bilas said time and again that he doubted the league would receive that many because other teams in other leagues would probably get those slots.

Hm. Maybe Bilas is expecting Marquette to falter in the coming weeks. Otherwise, it’s hard to see how teams from the Big 12, Big Ten, ACC and SEC move up given that teams like BC, Va. Tech, Baylor and Minnesota are playing up catch-up. Not the other way around.

But what do you think? How many Big East teams will be dancing in March?
