Big East

We are only one day away from Villanova's Big East Tournament opener. Today's 2pm game will determine the Wildcats' opponent tomorrow afternoon. The other match-ups may affect the later tournament match-ups as well.

Yesterday, St. Johns blew out an extremely unmotivated UConn team. Today the "Team Formerly Known As the Redmen" will play Marquette at 2:00 pm. The Golden Eagles won the only matchup between those teams this season in a 63-61 squeaker at Madison Square Garden.

In the other matchups: South Florida handled DePaul, 58 to 49, and will play Georgetown in the early game today. Seton Hall edged out Providence in the highest-scoring affair of the day, 109 to 106. Cincinnati escaped Rutgers by a single point, 69 to 68 to grab a spot in the late game today against Louisville.

Today's complete Big East schedule follows:
