*sigh*

Last week was very sad. Forget the win against Creighton, we lost to Georgetown. There are 1,000,000 things Villanova fans would rather do than lose to the Hoyas. The Wildcats dropped to 2nd place.

Adding to the sadness of last week, Seton Hall's losing streak reached 3 games. No one else cares about that? What do you mean I'm weird? Hey don't give me that finger that's not nice.

DePaul is currently in 5th place. And that's still kinda weird.

Creighton is in last lol.

Games of the Day

Tuesday

DePaul vs. Providence

Who knew a DePaul game in late January would be important! Myke Henry has come through for the Blue Demons, putting up 13 points and 8 rebounds in the loss to Xavier. Providence has won two in a row after giving the Johnnies their first conference win. I'm not sure if DePaul can possibly stop LaDontae Henton.

Wednesday

Seton Hall vs. Marquette

The other Wednesday night game is battle of cellar dwellers, so this is unfortunately the game that is most enticing. Luckily (5) Duke Blue Devils vs. (8) Notre Dame Fighting Irish is on ESPN2.

Saturday

Villanova vs. DePaul

If DePaul defeats Providence on Tuesday, they will improve to 6-3 in the conference. This will mean Villanova will need the win over DePaul to separate anyone from gaining an edge on second place. If you all recall, the 1st and 2nd seeds in the Big East Tournament get to play one of the bottom four teams. And it's never too early to worry about seeding in a conference tournament.
