Villanova: Good bounce back win at Marquette after a drilling by Creighton. Non Conference victories over Kansas and Iowa are impressive.
Creighton: Moves into lock status. Resume was lacking a marquee win, which they picked up against Villanova, on the road. Additionally, they had a solid victory over Georgetown. No let up for this team.
Should be in:
Work to do:
Xavier: Wasted a big opportunity at Providence yesterday. Non-Conference win against Cincy looking big.
Providence: Monster week for the Friars. Handled Butler, then beat Xavier at home. Wins over Creighton and Xavier look good, and are enough to get them into the tourney if Selection Sunday was today.
Georgetown: Frankly, I would remove them from discussion after this week after two losses, despite non-conference wins over Kansas State and VCU. However, this week they host Villanova then have a huge non-conference opportunity against Michigan State on a neutral floor. Win either of those games, and a lot of past sins could be overlooked by the committee.
