The Open Thread: Villanova-Marquette, BIG EAST Tournament Quarterfinals


2010_bet_medium

 

The big boys come out today! While Tuesday and Wednesday are certainly fun and there are definitely some entertaining games (I think Seton Hall scored 200 points the other night), Thursday is when the real basketball begins. All the top seeds held court with the exception of Louisville, who was upended by Cincinnati late last night.

Here is your schedule for today:

  • 12:00 p.m. - #22 Georgetown vs. #3 Syracuse, ESPN
  • 2:30 p.m. - Marquette vs. #10 Villanova, ESPN (hint: this is the game that matters)
  • 7:00 p.m. - Notre Dame vs. #16 Pittsburgh, ESPN
  • 9:00 p.m. - Cincinnati vs. #6 West Virginia, ESPN

What will happen today? Will there be a Madison Square Garden left standing after the Hoyas and Orange finish their 3rd bout of the year? Can Villanova get back to their winning ways after a late-season fold? Will Luke Harangody actually try to hug a ref? Will Lance Stephenson put up less than 15 shots?

All these questions, and more, will be answered today!
