With the first day’s worth of games now over (with Connecticut beating DePaul, Rutgers beating Seton Hall, South Florida upsetting Villanova, and Marquette knocking off Providence), we now know who will be playing tomorrow. Here’s the schedule. All games are on ESPN.
No. 8 Georgetown plays No. 9 Connecticut at 12:00 PM, and Panthers fans should be watching, because the winner will play Pitt on Thursday.
No. 5 St. John’s will take on No. 13 Rutgers at 2:00 PM. The Red Storm is one of the hottest teams in the Big East, winning seven of its last eight and nine of its last 11, including victories over Duke, Pitt, Connecticut and Villanova. The winner will play Syracuse.
No. 7 Cincinnati plays No. 15 South Florida at 7:00 PM. That’s a great draw for the Bearcats, as the Bulls’ victory yesterday over Villanova was their first non-DePaul Big East win since mid-January. The survivor will face Notre Dame.
Finally, No. 6 West Virginia will play No. 11 Marquette at 9:00 PM, with the winner facing Louisville.
