The Big East Tournament will once again provide us with great basketball experience.
We have so many great squads going face-to-face. Villanova and Marquette are certainly the favorites but we shouldn’t exclude Xavier and Georgetown, whom to me, have great squads and can beat anybody on any given night.
I also expect St John’s Red Storm to go past DePaul, given the fact that they possess one of the best offenses in college basketball. I just can’t see DePaul limiting them enough to secure a victory.
The Providence Friars are currently in better form and on a good streak which I think will continue against Butler. Butler showed inconsistency in the latter stages of the season and the neutral venue certainly won’t help them.
As previously discussed, Xavier and Georgetown appear to be the dark horses in this competition and it will be a real surprise to me if Creighton or Seton Hall advance. Well, Seton Hall has a good roster and I expect them to do well against Georgetown and the game could even be decided in the last few minutes of the game.
Overall, I expect Marquette and Villanova to go all the way to the final with the Villanova Wildcats coming out on top.
