BIG EAST Basketball Preview, week 11: TV Schedule, What To Watch For

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the Big East still has balance. Everywhere.

Creighton got their first win. They beat a struggling St. John's team who is looking less and less like the ranked team they were a few weeks ago. SJU turned is around quickly by defeating Providence at home, who had held first place in the conference.

Villanova had some trouble, but they were able to top DePaul on the road; always a positive to defeat a conference opponent on the road.

Seton Hall won both their games this week, getting Isaiah Whitehead back in the latter. They will be a force going into March.

Marquette has no promise. I should really watch what I say this week...

Games of the Day


Seton Hall vs. DePaul

With Whitehead back, it will be interesting to see if the Pirates can get back to their play when they were nationally ranked. DePaul defeated Seton Hall back on January 22 in NJ when SHU was ranked 24th, so they'll look for revenge in the Windy City.


Providence vs. Georgetown

This could easily decide who gets 2nd and 3rd in the conference at the end of the year; one of which plays the "play-in" game of the bottom-4 teams. LaDontae Henton may not be guarded by Joshua Smith, but he'll need to be watched carefully by the Hoyas. Kris Dunn vs. D`Vauntes Smith-Rivera will be a treat.


Georgetown vs. Villanova

Another revenge game! Villanova has had trouble at the Wells Fargo Center (or at least had difficult times getting a win) and this Saturday should not be different. Will the Wildcats finally figure out Joshua Smith? Will Georgetown shoot under 50% like normal people? Find out Saturday!
