I know St. John's is undefeated, but is it really fair that they have to play against three teams in the same day?

LOL. I believe DePaul counts as -1 team so the net effect is still one against one.

All of DePaul's remaining games will likely  be "away" games. It won't take many fans of their opponents to outnumber Blue Demon fans.

When Marquette plays DePaul they are going to have to shut them out.  I don't think I can stand having to see that farcical walk-on at the end of the bench doing a dance at any point. Watching this game, I can just change the channel

Butler down a quick 3 touchdowns in the first quarter.

I've watched Georgetown a few times. They have some talent, but their backcourt is really erratic. At times, Akinjo looks like Tremont Waters, then he'll turn it over on consecutive possessions and just seem completely lost. Govan is really good, but quite often he's totally alone out there. They miss Marcus Derrickson a lot.

I feel like they're one of those teams that plays to the level of their competition. 8 of their 10 wins are by 10 points or less, and that includes 6 buy games. In the USF game, it was just one of those "how are you letting this team stay with you" kind of things. They'll steal a couple they shouldn't, but from what I've seen, they're the worst team in the league. I think DePaul and Xavier are both pretty clearly better than GT.

St. John's is beating SHU with better ball movement and denying Powell the ball. I think our defense is more disciplined than what I'm seeing from the Hall, but we will need more than Howard to beat them. Ponds is doing a good job of distributing when SHU takes away his options. He has zero first half points but they scored 45 as a team. If they deny him once he's off the ball he will have to make his focus finding others rather than forcing contested looks.

This is the best I've seen the Johnnies look this year.

SHU has the ball trailing by 1 with 3.9 seconds to play. Will inbound under the offensive hoop, so legit chance to win it.

SJU offense:  Five guys around the three point line.  Shoot a three or someone goes one on one.  That’s it.

+100

Good ball movement to create threes, but if you cover the arc, eventually they get frustrated and just put their head down and bull to the rim.

Seton Hall just stole one from St. John's. Good defensive play by SJU should've given them possession with 3 seconds to play but the refs blew what was effectively an inadvertent whistle that gave possession back to SHU. The Pirates then hit a three at the buzzer to win 76-74.

I wanted St. John's to be undefeated when we play them, but oh well. I'd like to see Seton Hall get a little love in the polls -- wins over Kentucky, at Maryland and over an unbeaten St. John's team, and a nice response after a 2-2 start to the season. But maybe they're not quite there yet.

St johns game absolutely incredible and i cannot imagine how enraged i woukd be if that happened to MU and this board would be in entire meltdown mode.  Might blow the server. 
Now SJU missed two front ends of one and ones in the last 45 seconds but...
Even after they reviewed the play 500 times how did seton hall get the ball back?
Figueroa deflected the inbounds pass and then passed it to anither st johns player, even with the obvious inadvertant whistle st johns had the ball.  He blew the whistle n st johns had the ball how in the world does seton hall get the ball back?  That entire crew needs to be suspended for the entire season.  U dont go watch video for ten minutes and make a call for something that did not exist on the tape.  The only thing the tape showed was seton hall turned the ball over.  As bad a referee blunder as i probably have ever seen.  There was no alternative ending yet they came up with one.  So so bad.
Title: Re: Big East Conference Results
Post by: NotAnAlum on December 30, 2018, 11:17:41 AM
I don't agree with the ref's call but the call was that since the clock failed to start they had to in effect "do it again".  They do this during the game if there is a clock problem usually on an inbound.  The team inbounds the ball again and off you go.  However in this case it created a complete injustice.  The problem is STJ didn't have possession when the whistle blew, nobody did.  The STJ player in bounds would have gotten possession a second later but you can't assume stuff like that after the whistle.  I'm not sure how they should have resolved it.  I guess the most fair disposition would have been an old fashion jump ball with 2 players jumping it up.
I'm not sure whether its better for MU that STJ lost or had they won.  I've got to believe STJ is more likely completing for us with the top 3 rather than SH.  In that case its better to deny STJ a road win.

The second half of this one was great. I thought X was going to pull it out, but SH made too many plays down the stretch. Powell looked great tonight. He'll be a guy to keep an eye on this year. He's progressed well each of the last 2 years.

Scruggs also hit a few big shots for Xavier tonight when the game was going back and forth a bit, and Hankins barely missed a shot. The biggest thing I saw from X was that they have no depth. Their bench barely played today. That's a tough trend to continue in this conference. I think we should be able to handle them well at home this weekend.

They've been consistently good through multiple coaches. Baldwin was pretty good in conference play last year, but also returned 5 other guys that played fairly significant minutes last year while adding Jordan Tucker.

Butler did crush a solid mid major in UC Irvine after the Presbyterian struggle. All after the heartbreaking game to IU. Florida, I put on a Christmas break letdown. Which was a payback game for Florida. Tonight's game is very shocking to me.

This is the best DePaul team in recent memory. For the first 10 minutes of the game, they had a lot of movement on offense and scored 30 points. They will definitely surprise some teams this year. I know Strus and Cain are seniors so I'm not sure if Leitao will be able to build from here.

DePaul is having a tough time closing out wins against their better opponents. When the individuals on their team know the little things they need to do at the end of the games to win or tie, that team is going to be much more difficult to beat.

For example , last night Strus had plenty of time and room to set up  his shot with a pump fake and get square to the basket for a much cleaner look than what he took.  I am sure when they  all get together and look at the tape he will see that. Hard to know that in the moment unless you have been there a few times.  Compare how that play went to the last minute shot Seton Hall made against St. Johns. The Seton Hall big man had less time than Strus did and yet he had the patience and vision to kick it out to an open player for a clean shot versus forcing his own shot.  Seton Hall has won some close games so they have that experience.

It also may be that Strus just is not a clutch player.
I seem to recall another game where he bricked a (wide open, btw) three to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.

You are correct, I think that was at the end of the miked up game between DePaul and Providence, where he put up another brick to soon into the shot clock . Maybe they need to be running the plays for Cain.

I was actually referring to the MU-DePaul game in the BET last year.

But that brings up an interesting point about last night. After Cain had his airball and the Nova fans didn't let up on him about it, he pretty much disappeared. Didn't even want to hold the ball, much less shoot it.

Looking ahead to this weekend because I'm bored, we have:

Creighton @ Butler
SJU @ Georgetown
Villanova @ Providence
Xavier @ Marquette
Seton Hall @ DePaul

Huge games all around with the league projected as tight as it is. PC loses and they'll be 0-2 at home. Ditto for Butler. MU got one of their top 3 toughest games out of the way and now has one of their top 4-5 easiest. Have to win that one. SHU has a chance to go 3-0 with 2 road wins albeit against 2 bottom half teams. By the end of the weekend we could have 0 undefeated teams or up to 4. Really an interesting weekend.

I don't know what to make of Butler or Providence at this point. Creighton beats Butler and they have 2 solid road wins to start league play.

As a Marquette fan, who are you cheering for and why?

Definitely want to see Creighton,Seton Hall and SJU log road victories. At this point, Creighton looks like they have a better chance of being a tourney team than Butler. Seton Hall needs to keep building its resume and NET ranking which works to everyone's benefit.  Also want the Johnnies to keep building that NET ranking. I am neutral on Villanova Providence. Would be good for Villanova to get a road win, but on the other hand I don't want to see Providence get in too deep a hole.

He has as good a chance as Markus.  They are the same kind of players.  This is the same guy who put up 8 pts on 2-13 against Seton Hall and 8 pts on 3-10 against Rutgers.  Today was the first big game he had on the road.   Lets not crown him yet.

Agreed, Dano. There is no great BEast team this season, which is a departure after the way Nova dominated the previous several years, and X got a No. 1 seed last season. Any team has a legit chance to beat any other. Lots of flaws to be exposed all around the league, but also lots of fine players who can take over games. There are several solid teams, and I hope we emerge as the most solid.

Yet we are 4-4 against Mullin since he took over the St. John's program, 1-year after Wojo started at MU.

Let's not become that cheesy fanbase that thinks we are better than we are, when we haven't won an NCAA tournament game since 2013.

I haven't seen anything that indicates Mullin is better than Wojo.

But I also haven't seen anything to indicate that Mullin can't coach. I know it looks like street ball at times but with his roster, 5 out is pretty much what they need to be running.

He often isn't even the one coaching in the huddles.  He steps aside and his assistants do the talking.

I watch a lot of college basketball.  You occasionally see assistants jump in after the head coach as said his bit in a huddle, but you rarely see assistants run the whole thing.  Mullin usually is standing in the background while his assistants run the game planning. 

It definitely seems strange to me, and perhaps suggests that Mullin is more the figurehead and recruiter, and less of an Xs and Os guy.

Have no idea of Mullin can coach worth a lick or not, but he definitely should have learned a great from Don Nelson. Aside from their drinking together, they were very close during their time at Golden State. Nelson knows ball and I would assume Mullin would have learned something during that time.

Absolutely agree, he knows BB and learned much from people he played with and against.  I have met some people who have difficulty in communicating in a Plain and encompassing manner.  I certainly would not judge that's the case here, just the coaching style seems different.

But like most things the bottom line is the acid test.  And right now things look real bright for St Johns.

Yup, even in an MU game earlier this year, they showed a Wojo cuddle but at the end you could hear Wojo tell them Stan would now give them their assignment or something along that line.

Watching the other two games tonight, it is clear that there are going to be no easy games in this league. The bottom of the league has come up and the middle class teams have enough firepower to make every game close all the way to the end of the game. The league needs a couple of teams to be clearly outstanding, and MU may have done the rest of the league a favor by getting a tough road victory tonight.  Clearly a long conference season to go though.

Creighton has continued to recruit well -- credit to McDermott, I thought they'd fall off the map after Dougie left.  Hall is also playing surprisingly well (to me at least); I thought they'd collapse under Willard after that senior class graduated.

Providence -- other side of the coin, I thought Cooley would have them playing better.

Creighton has a good young team and more kids  in the pipeline who want to play in that format. Same with Seton Hall. The Hall is also starting to get some fan support. They have a curtain over the upper bowl at their arena, so they really have the pit feeling at their games.

Cooley & Company had a top level freshman , AJ Reeves who was doing  very well get injured,  he was paired with another solid Freshman in the back court so there is some youth going on there.  They did have a solid road win over Texas, so they can be dangerous. For some reason they are always very motivated when they play MU.

Yeah, no doubt. MU will have their hands full in both games against them. Just seemed odd when they said he has been dealing with a back injury the past few games.

St. John’s escaped against Georgetown last week or so. Could easily be 1-4 in conference play. Not sure where they end up in the standings. Could be near the bottom. 😳

1. This isn't a usual DePaul team
2. Shamorie Ponds is one of the top two players in the conference and top 25ish in the country. Any team would struggle without him
3. Since playing us, SJU had their sixth man Mikey Dixon transfer
4. With Dixon and Ponds out, they really only have 4 Big East level players on the roster. Playing guys like Trimble, Williams Jr, and Keita for big minutes is not a recipe for success
5. Sometimes good teams play bad. Sometimes bad teams play good. Sometimes both things happen on the same night.

Getting blown out by anyone is not a good look. But trying to make it more than one bad game on an otherwise strong resume is not a good look either.

Butler losing was a tough one for the conference.  They had the inside track to win a bid but this one hurts them a bit.  No easy games in this league.

Woof, my Butler as 4th best team in the Big East prediction is not looking good.

I (and many others) said it preseason. This is Villanova's conference until someone proves otherwise.

I am excited about the team’s record thus far, but have to admit, being 2.5 favorite against number 100 says something. I have said all season that college ball is way down this season and I think the spread proves that. There are a lot of average teams beating each other up. Again, I’m hoping for a run of games that they separate themselves from the pack. Counting on Howard to score a 100 a game is a hope, imo, not a strategy.

Tough to win on the road, Goose. (Heck, last night for Duke it was tough to win at home against an unranked, 5-loss team that had fallen to Old Dominion and Georgia Tech.)

Perhaps college ball is "way down," though I don't know how a point spread from a January BEast game "proves" it.

Perhaps there are no great teams, but there have been a ton of highly entertaining games, including most of ours. It's the kind of parity that would make Rozelle proud.

Marquette can only play in the environment that exists. If we win the BEast, or get to the FF or E8 or S16, there will be no need to put an asterisk next to any of our accomplishments. I have read many times that 1976-77 was a "down" season for college basketball -- UCLA was no longer dominant, Indiana couldn't even make the NCAAs after going unbeaten the year before, a relatively mediocre Marquette team and UNC-Charlotte were able to make it to the Final Four, etc, etc.

I don't think we'll give the title back, though.

As for counting on Markus to score 100 ... why exaggerate? Most games we don't even need him to score 50 - ha!

Agree with 90% of your post. You can only win the games you play. It is not MU's responsibility to upgrade the entire landscape of college ball. Regardless of season outcome, it will not have an asterisk from this fan. Winning on the road has always been tough, and maybe this season a tad tougher due to more teams lumped together in terms of talent. That said, I do find the point spreads, and outcomes, to be discussion worthy. Equally ad discussion worthy, they are proving they can win the tight games, something not seen before in Wojo era.

As for '76-'77 season, come on. MU was far from mediocre and you know that full well. Any team that has two AA's on it, J Whitehead at center and former top three recruit on the bench is far from mediocre. That team, like many of Al's teams, played up or down to the competition. That team was preseason #1 or #2, depending on polls, and was top 3-4 team in the Al era. Do not mislead folks, that were not born at that time, that MU was not a top, top level team that season. To even note the '76-'77 season in any discussion with this year is actually laughable.

Yah, I don't think Georgetown is the 100th best team in college basketball, though.  If I had to do tiers, I would go as follows:

10-30 range: Marquette, Villanova, Seton Hall and St. Johns

30-45 range: Creighton, Butler

45-60 range: Xavier, Georgetown and Providence

75ish: Depaul

IMO, the big east is mainly top 60 teams.  Sure, there is quite a bit of parity, but its not like these teams are bad.  Definitely not super top heavy like the B10 or ACC, but a bunch of really solid teams that are going to beat up on each other.  Georgetown for example didn't exactly play a murder's row non-con, but they won @ Illinois, and lost by 1 @Syracuse.  Have won @ Butler and vs. PC so far this BE season.  They are a pretty good team. 

And, as others have said, winning on the road is tough.

Totally fair, Goose. "Mediocre" was a very poor word choice.

What they were much of the season was "disappointing." Several terrible losses, the kind that would have had Scoopers' hair on fire (or, in my case, my scalp boilin'). We had an extremely talented team that often did not play to its talent level. Critics now would would call that a sign of poor coaching, though we know that was not the case. Pretty lucky to even get into the tournament.

But no, those Warriors were not mediocre, and they really showed up at nut-cuttin' time -- both late in the season to make sure they got an NCAA invite, and then, of course, when it really counted!

Lots and lots of potential, lots of baggage. He played for multiple high schools, multiple AAU teams, etc...he was apparently showing up late or not at all for some practices and team functions, drawing the ire of several teammates, especially some team leaders.  SLU took a chance on him based on his talent and knowing him well as a local player. Very emotional player and kid.  High risk high reward. If he can stay the course, a big if, he is an elite talent.

I think DePaul is one of those teams that could really benefit from a postseason tournament, even a CIT/CBI type of run. At some point, their young guys have to see what it's like to win. If they were putting in 40 minute efforts, they would be a tourney team this year. No doubt in my mind. Instead, they lose games that they seemingly had well in hand: Northwestern, BC, Xavier. Even the Notre Dame, Villanova, and Butler games were all ones they were competitive in into the second half. Even their three most notable wins, Penn State, Seton Hall, and St. John's, were all games they had control of and very nearly threw away.

I know it's been a joke that they rehired Leitao, but he's done a decent job recruiting there and if he could get them to be at least 50/50 in the close games, they'd have a chance at some form of postseason play. Looking back, I think our little NIT run did help this year's team. Got us winning and competing in a more tense environment, which helped us to bring that intensity to the regular season. If that program is ever going to turn around, they could use some of that.

To be honest, I think he was a good choice for them at this point even on the return.  My memory of his teams from the CUSA era was that they always played tough even without top tier talent.  Seems to understand what you need to do to be successful there.

Two four stars coming in and a former top 75 transfer who will be eligible in November is pretty impressive. The four star from Chicago, Markese Jacobs, scored something like 45 and 46 in two games this week, one of them against very good competition. He hit 24-25 free throws I believe. Leitao seems to have things going in the right direction finally.

Jacobs is a ticking time bomb.

He had some issues last year, not off the court, but he was a terrible teammate and single handedly lost games for a pretty talented Uplift team.

Sure he can put up 40, but curious to see how he reacts to Leito and other talented players around him.

Seton Hall 49 DePaul 48 at half . Lots of offense. Strong fan support by Seton Hall considering crappy weather . I really enjoy watching as many of our league games as I can.

DePaul will again give us headaches.   The announcer just said they are second in league in offensive rebounding, and they had a lot of second chance points in first half.  They are better than they have been.   We can still take both but they will give us some fits.

To me it means they have a chance to part of the race.  They have not been around for years, nice to see them get out of the cellar. MU will be challenged when playing them.

They have 3 losses in the BE already.  To tie or win the BE outright you need a max of 5 losses.  That means you think they can go 10-2 the rest of the regular season.  They have 2 games left with Marquette, 1 left with Villanova, 1 left with St. John's, 2 left with Creighton.

Sorry, but I don't think there's any chance whatsoever they're losing less than 4 more games, and 7 losses is not in the running for a BE title.

Beat Hall twice and St John’s, what they have is a chance to make the NCAA tournament, let’s see what happens Wednesday, will not be a walk in the park. They took Ponds and Powell out of the game, glad MU played without Howard, gives them more confidence if Howard is taken out of the game. MU other starters better than Halls.

The full MU Chicago contingent needs to show up when we play DePaul at Wintrust. That pseudo home court advantage will be helpful this year.

Also hopefully the Wednesday game will be well attended .

I had felt for some time DePaul could win 6 Big East games this year and we don’t want any of those against us.

If Butler doesn't beat Villanova on Tuesday this could possibly be a 2 bid league. I say that because Butler is the only other team I think can make it. If they lose they only have Marquette x 2 and @ Villanova as top net rankings teams remaining.

Who’s making the tournament then? You think they’ll have 4 total teams from the B1G and PAC 12 combined? I find it highly unlikely. 68 teams make the Tournament.

As it stands now looking at the net rankings and bracketology there were 5 teams that would have been in the tournament as of yesterday morning. Nova, MU, Seton hall (Last 4 Byes) Butler ( Last 4 in) and St. Johns 9 seed. 2 of those 3 lost yesterday meaning that MU, Butler and Nova would be the only 3 in. Butler has no good wins yet, ST. Johns has the weakest non conference schedule in the history of basketball and Seton hall seems to be on life support lately. There is a ton of basketball left so I could be wrong but i feel teams 3-10 are just going to beat the crap out of each other and the difference between 2nd and 3rd place could be as wide as 5 games at the end of the season.

There are 5 projected teams as of yesterday 2 bubble teams and both lost its not as far fetched as you may think.

OK, that's fair but can you not say that about many conferences?  In my view don't you have to this same exercise with other conferences to have it a true comparison?  How many bubble teams from other conferences lost yesterday? Isn't there a big drop off after Michigan and Michigan State?  What about the Big 12?

I would guess 4 right now but 3 would not be completely shocking. The bottom 8 teams are.beating each other up but 2 seems nearly impossible. Things would have to fall imperfectly into place for that. Nova and MU would have to win out(excluding nova vs mu games) and the bottom 8 would have to all go .500 from here on out and maybe you get 2 or three bids from the BE but yeah really no way that happens

Post by: brewcity77 on January 20, 2019, 04:43:28 PM
2 seems unlikely just because they have to get to 68 and the Pac-12 isn't going to send many. If the Big East sends 2-3, you need to start looking at more than 10 from the Big 10 & ACC. You need 4 or more from the American. You need a 2 bid SoCon, MWC, & WCC.

If MU and Villanova are dominant (say both win 16 games) and Xavier & DePaul are 3 & 4 at 11-7 each, then maybe you only get to 2-3 if no one else is above 8-10. Seems really unlikely, though.

Some teams choose to commit to nonconference games in the middle of the conference schedule. Look at St. John’s - they’ve gotten into the habit of a mid-season game with Duke. They play Feb. 2 this year.
Title: Re: Big East Conference Results
Post by: AirPunch on January 20, 2019, 07:44:07 PM
2 isn’t out of the question but it’s highly unlikely. There is still 2/3 of the conference season left and I think at least 1 or 2 will get hot and separate themselves a bit for 3rd and 4th place.

MU/Nova games will be circled on all teams schedules as they’re really the only opportunities for “signature” wins in the conference.

Depends how it shakes out but I see 3-5 being a really safe bet but those teams will all likely be sweating on selection Sunday.

Also, BET will be crazy this year. I think all 10 teams have a pretty decent shot at winning. We seem to always crap out in that so that could leave the door open for another bid.

St John's gets in right now. But simply having a win over Marquette doesn't get them in. If they go 8-10 in league, they are not an at-large team. Unless we're going to say that Temple and Penn State are locks because of their home wins over Houston and Va Tech.

This St John's team is very similar, though at the moment looks like a weaker bubble this year. I felt at the time MU needed 23 wins to be a lock. We got 20. 21 would've been NIT, 22 would've been bubble, 23 would've been in.

22 (10-8 in league) might be enough for the Johnnies, but 9-9 or 8-10 and it's an uphill climb. Their non-con is a real anchor on their NCAA hopes. But a weak Pac-12 along with only two clear tourney teams in our own league means they probably have 4-5 spots that have to go to someone, and a 20+ win Big East team will have as good a shot as anyone.

Their NET is significantly higher than all the other computer rankings. And yes, put simply its because when we lose, we get blown out but when we win, we only win by a few points. Personally, I think 21 is pretty right on the money for this team. NET is off for many other teams but not for us IMHO.

I suspect it's because we're winning games we're supposed to win. I don't think margin matters a ton, certainly not as much as people are saying, because our RPI is 18. I don't think beating Creighton, Georgetown, Providence, and (DLTD) DePaul will move the dial much. The teams that make bigger jumps are doing so in the ACC and Big 10 that have conferences loaded with depth.

I think our best chance to move up in that regard is to keep winning and hope teams we played do the same. Another thing that hurts is our buy opponents haven't helped us much. Presbyterian is the only one close to top-200 status. The rest are all sub-250 and 4/6 have losing conference records.

While the Buffalo win was the single best buy game value for any team in the nation this year, we'd really be well served by having teams like Charleston Southern, Bethune Cookman, North Dakota and UMBC competing in their leagues.

Why should we be punished because we refuse to humiliate our opponents by running up the score?   ;)

We shouldn't, but who really cares. Will the NET tell which team is a good or a bad match up come selection Sunday? Would you rather have a high NET rank because you clobbered your opponents then lose the National Championship game by one? The only real result that matters is who scored the most when the clock runs out. So just keep winning.

Duh!

I suspect it's because we're winning games we're supposed to win. I don't think margin matters a ton, certainly not as much as people are saying, because our RPI is 18. I don't think beating Creighton, Georgetown, Providence, and (DLTD) DePaul will move the dial much. The teams that make bigger jumps are doing so in the ACC and Big 10 that have conferences loaded with depth.

I think our best chance to move up in that regard is to keep winning and hope teams we played do the same. Another thing that hurts is our buy opponents haven't helped us much. Presbyterian is the only one close to top-200 status. The rest are all sub-250 and 4/6 have losing conference records.

While the Buffalo win was the single best buy game value for any team in the nation this year, we'd really be well served by having teams like Charleston Southern, Bethune Cookman, North Dakota and UMBC competing in their leagues.

I suspect you are right on the money. However, I thought UW beating Michigan would have impacted MU's NET to some extent, yet it had almost zero effect. I also would think that beating UW and Buffalo and K State would impact their NET ranking more than it has. In the grand scheme of things it doesn't really matter...EXCEPT if it is used to seed teams..And since I don't trust the committee, and never have, never will..I could see them looking at MU being #21 in NET(at end of year hypothetically) and going "Yup...the top 6 seed'. When in reality, they should be(if the season ended today) no worse than a 4 seed, IMO.

You think their NET ranking is right on...maybe so, but if you ask me...they are closer to being as good as their AP ranking is currently(#12), then they are as low as their NET ranking has them(#21).

When the first NET came out we were sub-100 and have climbed from there. As nice as UW-M's win was, remember they were ranked I think 4th in NET when we beat them and are now 16th. I think it would help for UW-M to get back to Q1A status and KSU into Q1B, but I still think what drags us are the 6 lowest wins. We're great on high end quality, but too many low Q4s for my taste.

I’m not one to think the seeding will be paint-by-numbers with the NET. What’s the point of having a Committee if there are no decisions to make?  And how do you explain Syracuse the last few years?  I can’t believe that if Wisconsin finishes in the lower half of the B1G, how would the Committee view a 16 NET?  If Buffalo doesn’t lose again this season, how would the strength of their schedule be compared to ours?  Not gonna worry about it.  As folks say, just keep winning and the rest will take care of itself.

It’s gonna be tough for us to fall out of top 2 regardless. It’s nice if Nova loses a few not just to try and win 1st. But so that other teams can get solid wins(that aren’t us).

A butler win tonight woulda helped them and it also woulda made a potential win vs Butler better for us.

But you’re right. Not the end of the world.

I feel like Creighton will be a yo-yo team in and out of the field the rest of the year. Lose 4 straight, now won 2 straight in the middle of what could be a 4-game winning streak. Follow that with 3 road games, then 4/6 at home to finish the season. They'll likely be somewhere between the last four byes and next four out until Selection Sunday.

We will be facing a desperate Butler team next week. Lost 6/9 and after hosting us and Seton Hall, they're on the road 5 of their last 8.

The way the schedule plays out, I'm inclined to think Marquette, Villanova, and Seton Hall are in pretty good shape with Creighton and St John's most likely to join them. But nothing from 3-6 would surprise me.

The local media in Omaha headlines that Creighton moves into tie for third in the Big East. Good for the league to see the excitement and enthusiasm build in a season like this. Creighton has a fan friendly style of play which always makes their games worth watching.

If MU and Villanova can continue to be dominant the rest of the league will have some chances to pick up good quality wins. 

For illustration purposes let’s say each goes 14-4. That is 8 quality wins for someone else in conference.

I haven't compared them to the other schools in the middle, but I just looked at DePaul's nonconference schedule and it was abysmal.

Their most impressive win might be Penn State...which is in 14th place in the Big Twelethirfourteen. And they have losses to BC (9th in the ACC), NW (9th in the Big Twelethirfourteen), and ND (14th in the ACC). They didn't play any major schools that are even in the top half of their respective conferences.

IMHO, DePaul has to win 12+ BE games to have a shot.

Seriously, at this point I could not care less if two or ten BE teams make NCAA. MU has sealed their ticket and playing for seeding. MU’s future success this season is right in their lap. They continue to win, which should not be an issue, then off to March. It is nice to see MU in the drivers seat and not worrying about nine other teams winning or losing. Bottom line, if they do their job, they have a great seed and then see what happens.

If MU and Villanova can continue to be dominant the rest of the league will have some chances to pick up good quality wins. 

For illustration purposes let’s say each goes 14-4. That is 8 quality wins for someone else in conference.

The question is who of those other teams can cobble together a run of 2 or 4 games.

In this scenario, 2 of those 8 quality wins will be the head-to-head games between MU and Villanova.  And St. John's already has a win against MU. 

That leaves only five chances left.

The stronger the Big East the better it is for MU as a program. So I always care about how the league is going .  I have felt all season, this was the year MU could control its own destiny and not have to worry about other teams and they have done just that so far this season, which is fantastic.

I also enjoy following all the teams in the league, makes it interesting. The depth of the conference, the rivalries and the colorful coaches are what made the Big East a great league. This new incarnation of the league is moving steadily in that same direction.

Flipping back and forth to both games today and was thinking that the play has really stepped up in the Big East.   The perception that this is a down year may be true but in reality I think these teams are young and getting better.  MU will be more than prepared to make a run in the NCAA tournament by playing a round robin schedule in this league, down year or not.
Title: Re: Big East Conference Results
Post by: GooooMarquette on January 27, 2019, 12:29:37 PM
Seriously, at this point I could not care less if two or ten BE teams make NCAA. MU has sealed their ticket and playing for seeding. MU’s future success this season is right in their lap. They continue to win, which should not be an issue, then off to March. It is nice to see MU in the drivers seat and not worrying about nine other teams winning or losing. Bottom line, if they do their job, they have a great seed and then see what happens.

Short term, longer term.

Short term: Agree with respect to MU doing fine if we just take care of business. This season is ours to do with what we can.

Longer term: The more BE teams that make the dance, the more $$$$ we all get down the road. And the more $$$$ we get down the road, the more we can invest in the program.

Mullins really doesn't control that team.

Down 2, run a press, get a TO, Ponds gets it and immediately tries a behind the back pass while on the floor, OOB to GT.  Immediately after, they trap on the other end of the floor, force another TO, Figueora forces up a leaning, off balance transition 3, missed, 2 more wild putback attempts with the ENTIRE team crashing the glass so a simple rebound and pass leads to a 3 on 0 break and McClung dunks it.  Next possession another quick and wild shot leads to another 2 on 1 break and a layup.

They have a very athletic team and Ponds is excellent, but if they aren't shooting really well, they have no clue what to do.

That loss was annoying but doesn’t bother me much. They likely beat one of the Nova championship teams that night if Nova wasn’t at their top. They flat out didn’t miss a critical shot and had mediocre shooters raining bombs

They have two super seniors that are studs.  A 5 star freshman, along with several 4 star kids.  Raw talent, I’m going with Nova.  On defense they have shut down the elite players in this league which is frightening.  Absolutely smothered them.

Booth and Pascall are both 5 year players lmao.

And they are far and away the two best players

Villanova starts 2 5th year seniors, 2 sophomores, and 1 freshman. 6th man is a senior. One was rsci top 100 - Booth, #84

MU starts 1 4th year junior, 2 juniors, a sophomore and a freshman. 6th man is a senior. Four were rsci top 100 - J Hauser #57, Howard #71 (higher but for a late reclassification), Morrow #85 and S Hauser #94.

Looking at contributors, they are older and less talented.

They do have young talent farther down the bench - their 7th, 8th, 9th and 11th men were ranked 45th, 39th, 29th and 52nd. Only Matt Heldt (#96) was top 100 from the end of our bench. Maybe some of this young talent will emerge for Villanova down the stretch - but so far, not so much.

I'll admit I was wrong about this year's BE.  I thought there would be 6 teams clumped between 9 and 12 wins, with the bottom 4 clumped between 5 and 7 wins.

To be fair, on that play they were out of time outs.  He couldn't get up and he had to do something.  A bad outcome was somewhat likely there.

Do you consider Paschall a worse player than Morrow despite Morrow being a top 100 RSCI player?  For that matter, do you think Morrow and Booth are essentially equal as their rating implies?

In terms of total talent, Nova has more but it is young, as you state.  Our big 3 are up there, then throw in Theo as a rising star, but Nova has more of it dispersed throughout in my opinion.

"I still say there's no reason we can't win the Crappy 8 this year. We should cut the nets on senior day and raise a banner if we do it, too."

"With a win yesterday, Xavier could have been alone in first in the Crappy Eight. Instead, we've fallen into a four way tie for last, a half half game out of first. It's going to be an interesting race all year long in the Crappy Eight. "



I am very happy to be in the non-crappy 2.

As long as the kids don't try to force things to happen and let the game come to them they will be fine. It is the hero ball that Nova traditionally exploits and leads to fast breaks etc. I think we will see a couple of runs  of that large lineup that we saw at Georgetown, the one that was Theo, Sam , Joey, Bailey and Sacar.

At this moment, I am not worried about playing anyone in the Crappy 8. I am not even that worried about playing 'Nova two times over next couple of weeks. I really wish they had two real solid NC games over next couple of weeks to see how they fare against other teams ranked in the top 15. Since we don't, I hope we get the best that 'Nova has to offer two times and see what happens.

Their young talent doesn’t much contribute this year tho.

Their main contributors are 2 guys who are gone next year. Then it’s Gillespie who while a sophomore he got solid PT on a natty title team.

Novas Big 3 of Booth, Paschall and Gillepsie is no younger or more talented than Howard and the Hauser duo. Nova is much older actually.

Our role players are a little more experienced since they play Bey a freshman and our freshman is in our big 3.

Crappy 8 reminds me of when the Big Ten actually had 10 teams, but Michigan and Ohio State were so dominant in football that it was sometimes referred to as the Big 2 and Little 8.  But give ourselves more credit - I'd rather think of the BEast right now as the Exceptional 2 and Normal 8.

The crazy thing is, pretty sure any of the "Crappy 8" could beat pretty much any team not ranked in the top 10-15 on any given night.  Every team in the BE is a legit top 75 team.

Big East Net Rankings as of games of Sunday January 27. Georgetown took a huge leap up and The Johnnies got punished.
New Old
19   19   Marquette   
21   21   Villanova   
49   39   St. John's
50   50   Butler   
58   57   Creighton   
64   60   Seton Hall   
73   72   Providence   
83   86   Xavier   
88   109   Georgetown   
102   99   DePaul

Thanks for the research on this. It would be great if GTOWN and Xavier could get up to 75 to add to our Q1 win total.

No.  Gtown and Xavier winning games is not good for anyone in the league, unless you support a two bid Big East.

At this point, I’m cheering for what helps MU’s seed. I’m fine with sacrificing a tournament team for a better seed. I understand it costs some tourney credits, but having cheered for the conference the last 4 years, it’s good to cheer for our interests a bit.

I mean...so am I.  Obviously I care far more about MU than other Big East teams.  But whatever incremental benefit an X or Gtowns NET ranking gets from knocking off other BE teams isn't going to make a difference in MU's seeding.  And in doing so is going to hurt those other team's NET rankings in the process, who MU play just as many times.

Its going to shake out how its going to shake out.  Probably a 4 bid conference, with an outside shot at 5 if Hall, SJU and one of Butler/CU/PC wake the fuk up.  But if its Marquette and Nova, and then 8 teams below .500...man, that's going to be gross for the league.

The Hall has an excellent non conference resume and needs to regain their mojo. I think they can . Providence is a more formidable team with Reeves back. One of Creighton Butler and The Johnnies has to get on a winning streak . Xavier Georgetown and DePaul only real chance is to win BET.

One thing to keep in mind is a lot can happen over the next 10 or 11 games. So let’s see how things end up when the dust setttles.

Or is it that the non-con data currently comprises about half of the overall data, plus teams' performance through 1/3 of the season is often pretty similar to what it is after 2/3 of the season?

I got this from a Villanova guy:

Villanova has a 26 game home winning streak against Seton Hall.

The last time Seton Hall won @ Nova, Mariano Rivera had just finished up his rookie ball season with the Yankees.
That streak covers the rest of Rivera's minor league career, his 19 year big league career and the five year wait for the HOF vote.

we've discussed the possibility of only two over .500 in conference.
I would hope someone could play solid ball the last month and end up 9-9.

But for a winning 10-8 record, I'm not sure which team I would pick.
St John's or Seton Hall going 6-3?  Providence 7-3?

Hall has the best wins of those three. That's gotta be one of them. Unfortunately, Butler is probably out barring a miraculous run. Johnnies are the next option. Maybe providence can make a crazy run too, but I don't even know if that's mathematically possible.
Title: Re: Big East Conference Results
Post by: TAMU Garcia on January 31, 2019, 05:20:27 PM
Not only are there only 2 teams above .500, there's also only 3 teams with only 1 less win then loss, meaning 5 teams are 2 or more losses down in the W column. Of those three teams that are 1 win away from .500, 2 have to go on the road for their next BE game (SJU @Marquette & Seton Hall @Butler), so they both could be in the two more losses than wins category soon. Georgetown is favored to get to .500 tonight at home vs Xavier...but then they have to go to Nova in a couple days. Could be awhile before we see a third team above .500.

I don't see it. Six of their remaining 10 are on the road & they host Villanova. I know they won a couple away already, but I think it's an uphill climb to get to 8-10.

On paper, it looks like Creighton or St John's, but I would put my money on Seton Hall. 4/5 losses were on the road & they get 5 more home games. They have the two toughest road games out of the way & have been solid away from home (6-5 away from Newark, wins over UK & Maryland).

They were 86+% to win in the second half against Northwestern, BC, and Xavier. If DePaul holds on in those, they would unquestionably be in the field. Instead, they lost and are killing at large hopes for St John's, Seton Hall, & Providence. At this rate they could go 6-12 and effectively cost the league 3-4 potential bids.

 Providence has been in the tournament 5 years in a row. Butler has been in the tournament 4 years in a row and has won at least one game in each tournament appearance and has a sweet sixteen. Xavier has been in the tournament 5 years in a row with two sweet sixteens and a final 8. Seton Hall has been in the tournament 3 years in a row. Creighton has been in tournament 3 out of the last 5 years.

All of the Bottom 8 teams are young with a big ceilings.

This is the key to why I'm not worried about the Big East moving forward. The bottom 8 return most of their stars or have new stars waiting in the wings.

Butler: Only loses Paul Jorgensen (26.3 minutes per game) and Nate Fowler (17.9) and has Bryce Nzei (transfer from UWM) and Kalif Battle (top 100 FR) coming in
Creighton: Only loses Kaleb Joseph (12.6) and Connor Cashaw (9.3) and has Denzel Mahoney (transfer from SEMOST)
DePaul: Loses a ton with Strus (36.4), Cain (34.7), and Olujobi (25.8) leaving but brings in Darious Hall (transfer from Arkansas), Carte'Are Gordon (transfer from SLU), Romeo Weems (top 50 FR) and Markese Jacobs (top 100 FR)
Georgetown: Replaces Govan (32.2) with Omer Yurtseven (Impact transfer from NCST), loses Mourning (20), Malinowski (17.5), and Johnson (11.7)
Providence: Only loses Jackson (26.9) and Holt (6.0) and bring Greg Gantt (top 75 FR)
Seton Hall: Only loses Nzei (28.7) and replaces him with Ikey Obiagu (transfer from Florida State)
St. John's: Only loses Clark Jr (30.4) and has 5 transfers coming in
Xavier: Loses Castlin (22.5), Hankins (20.8), and Welage (20.7) brings in a 5 man recruiting class including 4 top 150 recruits

Looking at all this, I would say only DePaul and Georgetown may trend down while the other six will all be on the rise next season. Throw in Marquette returning everyone and adding McEwen, and Villanova adding the #2 ranked recruiting class and the Big East will be a bloodbath next season.

Too bad both guys played poorly for the Hoyas-Nova was beatable, not at their best today. Gillespie impressive.

Nova looks susceptible in the post at the center and possibly the forward spot. Hopefully Theo can play a role as well as the Hauser brothers for NMD.

Markus has to guard either Gillespie or Booth.     The match ups won't be as bad as last year when Markus was guarding Bridges or DD because Sacar had to guard Brunson.    The good news is that they have to guard him, too.

Butler: Only loses Paul Jorgensen (26.3 minutes per game) and Nate Fowler (17.9) and has Bryce Nzei (transfer from UWM) and Kalif Battle (top 100 FR) coming in
Creighton: Only loses Kaleb Joseph (12.6) and Connor Cashaw (9.3) and has Denzel Mahoney (transfer from SEMOST)
DePaul: Loses a ton with Strus (36.4), Cain (34.7), and Olujobi (25.8) leaving but brings in Darious Hall (transfer from Arkansas), Carte'Are Gordon (transfer from SLU), Romeo Weems (top 50 FR) and Markese Jacobs (top 100 FR)
Georgetown: Replaces Govan (32.2) with Omer Yurtseven (Impact transfer from NCST), loses Mourning (20), Malinowski (17.5), and Johnson (11.7)
Providence: Only loses Jackson (26.9) and Holt (6.0) and bring Greg Gantt (top 75 FR)
Seton Hall: Only loses Nzei (28.7) and replaces him with Ikey Obiagu (transfer from Florida State)
St. John's: Only loses Clark Jr (30.4) and has 5 transfers coming in
Xavier: Loses Castlin (22.5), Hankins (20.8), and Welage (20.7) brings in a 5 man recruiting class including 4 top 150 recruits

Looking at all this, I would say only DePaul and Georgetown may trend down while the other six will all be on the rise next season. Throw in Marquette returning everyone and adding McEwen, and Villanova adding the #2 ranked recruiting class and the Big East will be a bloodbath next season.

Paul Reed has emerged for DePaul and to a lesser extent, so has LeBlanc for Georgetown.

So much like this year, the floor for the conference is going to be relatively high.

Then we have the big 2, X at 3-7 and everyone else at 4-6. That looks weirdly awful in the table. Someone has to rise and grab another bid. I’m wondering now if I was wrong to think more than 2 for the BE was a certainty.

In any case SJ will have to wait for their next win.

Obviously, the narrative that had been building here that Nova had again become some unbeatable juggernaut was exposed as silliness tonight, when they were taken into OT at home by a mediocre Creighton team.

There is no great team in the BEast, and only two good teams. Nova is one of them, and we're the other.

If we play well -- not superhuman, not shooting 65% from 3s or anything like that, but well -- I like our chances.

I agree they are not an unbeatable juggernaut by any stretch, but also wouldn't put too much stock in the fact they struggled v. an undermanned and mediocre Creighton team. I am a firm believer that every team has 2-4 games a season where everything clicks, they shoot lights out and are almost impossible to beat. By the same token, there are going to be a few games like that in the other direction where nothing will fall, bounces don't go your way etc..; you hope those games come against cupcakes where you may still win handily. Nova started out 3-17 from 3 and were in the 20s percentage wise overall well into the first half of that game. They ended up at 37.5% overall and 29.4% from deep. They won't shoot like that often even against a great D, and Creighton is not a great one. Unfortunately, they got a wake up call (like we did on Tuesday), except they still got a W.  If they were going to get the W anyway, I would have preferred they roll last night and come in feeling really good about themselves on Sat.

Oh well, both teams had to be looking ahead a bit towards Saturday and I'm sure will be focused and fired up.  I like our chances on Saturday too, so much so that I will be extremely letdown if Nova comes into what will be a great environment and still gets a win. I also think it will be far better for the conference for Nova not to just cruise through even though several of their games have been close deep into the game. They have an unbelievable knack for taking over games in the last 5-8 minutes. Really hoping for a MU barrage and big win on Saturday; we're due.

I’m not sure I see any team breaking through in the remaining 7 games.

I think we’re looking at MU/Villanova plus a possible BET winner wild card. Other than that I’m not seeing it. Maybe one of those teams will make a play in game. Down year. Happy MU is one of the top 2.

Have to see how all the teams in the league end up. Still a lot of games to go and one of the lower 8!could go on a run. The Johnnies really screwed up today.

The Johnnies screw up every time they don’t play MU.

Pops was asking me what I thought about Providence +6 today. Told him PC was much better than their record indicates and St. John’s is always good for a clunker.

Not long after the the game got a text saying “Shoulda bet more”

I don't think so. I think the earlier tiebreaker is win against highest rated conference opponent. So I think St. John's get the 3 seed because of their wins over us

As usual, TAMU, I’m right on this one:

Quote
MULTIPLE-TEAM TIE (3 or more teams)

1. Teams are viewed as a “mini-conference” when comparing head-to-head results. The team with the best record vs. the other teams in the mini-conference gains the advantage. The team with the worst record vs. the other teams in the mini-conference is seeded the lowest.

Very outlandish, yes.  St. John's, despite their clunker games, still have 5 Q1 victories and only one "bad" loss.  If the season ended right now, they'd for sure be in.  Seton hall, because of their non-con, would be a bubbly team but most likely in today.  If you look at other bubble teams, which I just did a lot of re-evaluating this morning of, they're right in there.  Butler and Creighton, while I don't think are in if the season ended today, are still very much in the bubble mix.

St John's really needs VCU and Georgetown to stay where they are. Both are Q1 for now but are likely one loss from losing that status. I'd guess when the new rankings come out today, at Georgetown will no longer be a Q1 win.

It feels like 3 to 4 bids are possible for the big east.

If 9 -9 gives teams a chance then DePaul with 4 home games and St. John’s 4 home games have the best chance to go 9-9. I think DePaul probably needs 10 in the big east.

Seton hall 4 home games but faces Marquette and Villanova at home would probably get in at 9-9

Georgetown and butler have 4 on the road. They also need to win 5 to go 9-9.

Providence and Georgetown need alot of help. Xavier next year...

It looks like the Johnnies have the easier schedule from here on out than Butler. I guess if we were to tie Nova record wise we would be the 1 seed based on the head to head. So guess I am leaning toward The Johnnies camp tonight.

I wouldn't mind a third game. The first two took place under some pretty strange extenuating circumstances. Ironically a game in MSG, though a deal facto roadie, would be he most normal situation of the three.

The challenge with Creighton is that they only have two Q1 wins, one of which is at #74 Providence, two spots away from being a Q2 win. The only Q1 game left on their schedule is at Marquette. If they don't win that game, and Providence slips to a Q2 win. I'm not sure that 18-12 with 1 Q1 win is enough. I'm not sure that 18-12 with 2 Q1 wins is enough. Especially if the best neutal court against #39 Clemson and the other is practically a Q2 win.

TAMU, do you think that when it comes time for the committee to do their work, they will look at a certain win and say, "Well, that's technically a Q1 win, but barely so. Practically a Q2"?

Not asking sarcastically at all. Wondering if you've gotten a feel for that kind of distinction.

Can't say I know anyone on the committee so I don't know. But two things lead me think that they would.

1) The fact that they felt compelled to further separate Q1/Q2 into Q1a/Q1b/Q2a/Q2b. Seems like the only reason to do that would be because they value the "a" type wins over the "b" type wins
2) Marquette being so far out of the tourney last season. Marquette's resume last season was very solid, I think certainly worthy enough for consideration for a bid, but they got placed at least 5 spots out of the promised land. We had only 1 bad loss (DEPAUL!!!) and had 5 Q1 wins. That was better than some of the teams both in the tourney and the 1 seeds in the NIT. But the knock I kept hearing was while those were 5 Q1 wins...none of them were "marquis" victories and that hurt us.

I think that's why they broke the Quadrants into A/B. I essentially think of each bracket as the Committee asking a question. Here are the questions by Quadrant, in reverse order of difficulty because I think it makes more sense that way:

Quadrant 2B (Home 56-76, Neutral 76-100, Away 101-135): "Can you beat an autobid team?" The teams here aren't likely to be getting at-large bids, but more often than not this is where you will find mid and low major conference winners. These are teams that are either earning the auto-bid or filling out the NIT field.

Quadrant 2A (Home 31-55, Neutral 51-75, Away 76-100): "Can you win a game in Dayton?" The teams you beat here are the types you will see if you are in a play-in game. They are bubble teams to high NIT seeds. This is showing you can beat a good team, but if this is your best win, you may not be able to go far once the bright lights come on.

Quadrant 1B (Home 16-30, Neutral 26-50, Away 41-75): "Can you win a game in the Tournament?" These are the teams that are going to get into the field, down to the bubble. In general, if you are a top-40 team (whether in RPI, kenpom, NET, whatever) you are most likely going to be in. It's after 40 that you start to see teams that are on the bubble. So winning these games is proving you can win on the first day of the Tournament, though not necessarily able to make a deep run.

Quadrant 1A (Home 1-15, Neutral 1-25, Away 1-40): "Can you go to the Sweet 16 and possibly win once you get there?" Teams that win these games at home are proving they can beat the protected seeds, while the neutral court range goes down to about the 7-line. Those are teams that are safely in the tournament. If you are winning these games, you are good enough to get a win that will advance you to the Sweet 16. Teams that have won multiple Q1A games are good enough to advance beyond the Sweet 16.

This is why I think a team like Arizona State is going to get a long look again from the Selection Committee. They have some terrible losses, but 3 Q1B wins. If they get in, they have proven they can win the types of games you play in March. The same goes for teams like Georgetown and Creighton, who have more Q1 wins than many of the teams they are competing with for bids. I don't think a losing record in Q1 hurts you much, but if you have a large sample size (5+ games) you better win some of them.

I'm not sure how much Q2 matters at all. On a high seeds resume, it's more the presence of Q2 games as opposed to Q3/4 that makes the resume look good. If you are competing for a top-4 seed, you won't have many, if any, losses there. When it comes to the bubble, it might be a bit more important, especially Q2A. If you are a team that only got 2-3 Q1 games (and didn't get wins) but dominated Q2, that will reflect pretty well because you are winning the good games you do get (see Nevada and Houston).

People a year later can continue to try to break down MU missingbthe tourney all they want.  Botttom line is we beat Depaul and we r in.  Not only does it give us 1 more win and avoidance of that bad loss late, it puts us 1 clear game above conference foes that did get in.  Depaul game was it. And yes the Depaul game allowed at least 5 teams to over take us.

I like your way of thinking about the Quadrants Brew.

I thought you were crazy when you said the Creighton had more Q1 wins than the teams they were competing with. Then I checked. Dear god is the bubble weak this year. BraketMatrix's last four in, first four out, and next four out have a combined total of 14 Q1 wins. That's 12 teams with 14 Q1 wins. Barely 1 Q1 win per team. And Indiana has 4 of them! So 10 Q1 wins for the other 11 teams.

Post by: JamilJaeJamailJrJuan on February 13, 2019, 01:58:54 PM
In terms of best thing for the league with respect to maximizing bids and not rooting for us to lose (obviously) is X, Depaul and Gtown losing all games not against that group of three. SJU ending up with 10 wins, not 11.  Seton Hall finding a way to get to 9-9 in BE play, which means they probably need to steal 1 @SJU or @Nova. 

If the standings end up this, I think the league has a pretty good shot at 5 bids (with results that would fit this scenario:

Marquette 15-3
[vs. Butler (W); @PC (W); @Nova (L): vs. Creighton (W); @SHU (W); vs. Gtown (W)]

Creighton 9-9

Butler 9-9

I think in this case Marquette, Nova, SJU and Seton Hall are all in.  One of Butler or Creighton are in the play in games. 

PC could perhaps get themselves into that conversation with a 9-9 finish.  Beating Nova tonight could do the trick, which would also give us the outright BE crown (again, based on results listed above - with the one change being PC over Nova tonight).

People a year later can continue to try to break down MU missingbthe tourney all they want.  Botttom line is we beat Depaul and we r in.  Not only does it give us 1 more win and avoidance of that bad loss late, it puts us 1 clear game above conference foes that did get in.  Depaul game was it. And yes the Depaul game allowed at least 5 teams to over take us.

I'm not sure I agree. Maybe it's enough to get us in but avoiding 1 bad loss doesn't really get me all hot and bothered if I'm the committee. I think falling short against Villanova and X were the bigger misses. Had a chance to win both games. Either of those and I think we are in the tourney, possible even avoiding Dayton. Win both and I don't think we're on the bubble.

If we beat depaul didn't we own the tiebreaker to end up third assuming all else equal? Honestly not much use worrying about it now but it's crazy to think that team would probably be better than most the BE this year and solidly in the tournament.

I'll be honest J5, I don't care much about whether or not the other Big East teams make the tourney. I want whatever is best for Marquette. Personally I think that means cheering for DePaul, Seton Hall, Georgetown, and Providence. All four are straddling the borderline between Q1/Q2 road win and Q2/Q3 home win. I would love to see all three end up on the right side of 75. Nova, SJU, Butler, Creighton, and X can all take some punishment without changing quadrants.
Title: Re: Big East Conference Results
Post by: brewcity77 on February 13, 2019, 02:09:53 PM
I like your way of thinking about the Quadrants Brew.

I thought you were crazy when you said the Creighton had more Q1 wins than the teams they were competing with. Then I checked. Dear god is the bubble weak this year. BraketMatrix's last four in, first four out, and next four out have a combined total of 14 Q1 wins. That's 12 teams with 14 Q1 wins. Barely 1 Q1 win per team. And Indiana has 4 of them! So 10 Q1 wins for the other 11 teams.

It gets really bad when you get down there this year. That's why I think Indiana is in pretty solid shape. As much as they've fallen off, they have proven they can beat teams and most of their wins are Q1. It's also why I think Georgetown has a real shot; if they win tonight they will have 4 Q1 wins as well. Hard to keep that out.

This is also why I'm not as sold on people saying this will be the year for the mid-majors to get bids. Teams like Utah State, VCU, San Francisco, Murray State, they just don't have anything that proves they can win if they get in. Most of the high majors do, even if only 2-3 Q1 victories. Belmont, on the other hand, should be in regardless.

Meh.  I personally care more about the Big East getting 5+ bids than I do arbitrary cut offs for quadrants wins.  If Marquette finishes 14-4 or better, they're going to be a 3 seed, and probably a 2 at 15-3 or better.  I am entirely unconcerned about where Marquette stands currently.  We don't need to worry about that stuff this season.

I don't think anyone knows for certain how much the committee will weigh NET in other overall scheme of things, and we only have 1 year of results to show us how they used Quadrants, and then they tweaked them again this season.  Hard to know.

All we have to go on right now is the top-16. 14/16 were in the top-16 of the NET & the 4 teams they mentioned as just outside (Villanova, Va Tech, Texas Tech, LSU) were really close. No one outside the top-21 I believe was mentioned. I do think when it comes to at-large teams, you don't want to be much lower than 55-60 in NET.

One interesting thing was seeing both Houston & Nevada in the top-16. Despite few high powered wins, might that bode well for teams like UNCG, Utah State, & San Francisco that are light on quality wins but highly regarded by the NET?

A year ago, Arizona State benefited from quality wins despite a questionable resume at the other end. This year, ASU, Indiana, and Seton Hall are hoping that trend holds. The consensus is that those 3 are in, but until Selection Sunday we won't really know.

I always want the most Big East teams in the tournament because it ultimately is to MU’s benefit. The league gets more money to spread around and the visibility is very helpful for recruiting.

I am hoping Seton Hall can get on a run. They have some super nice non con wins and I hate to see that go to West . I think Creighton is a fun team to watch and they have the schedule in their favor from here so maybe they can sneak in. Johnnies need some consistency to make it.

Someone want to explain what's going on with Creighton?  Up until recently I was worried about their trip to Milwaukee, because they reminded me so much of us last year, where if they're hitting their shots, anything can happen (even with OT putting up 104 is pretty special).  But their last three games they've scored 59 with OT (albeit against a very good Nova team), 58, and 61 with OT against a pretty poor X team, including a staggering 2 points in OT.  Have the wheels fallen off in Omaha or were they just never on to begin with and they played their best game of the season against us?

I want St. John's far away from MU's side of the bracket in NYC. Whatever makes that happen. I'd lean Butler if you think we end up in 2nd and SJU if you think we overtake Nova.

Color me crazy but this year I really don’t want this. I am yearning for a third matchup, even as a home game for the Johnnies. I know it makes no sense, and I’ve never been the type to argue the “to be the best you’ve gotta beat the best,” because afterall it is about matchups. That said, I really want to play St John’s again.

Maybe it’s cause I’m butthurt, maybe it’s cause I am fearless with this team. It’s funny because the only two times I had a really strong feeling that Marquette loses this season in conf play was both games v StJohns, but now I have a really strong feeling that it would be good for the team to play them again and exercise those demons.

You don’t want to go into the dance thinking that there is a type that you can’t beat. That style team is pretty much Marquette’s worst type (outside of the roided out athletic version at Duke) yet I’m sure most of us know that our fellas are more talented and will be able to overcome. I want to see it in real life via a semis win and then win the BET the following night, head into the big dance playing with house money.

I absolutely mean it with all my heart that the above scenario, or a regular season BE Title, would make this season a complete success in my eyes no matter if/when/where we lost in the ncaa tournament. Of course I’d be disappointed when it ends, it’s only natural, but this season more than any other I can remember as a mubb fan has been one of those complete journey fulfilling/entertaining seasons.

I’m much more saddened that it has to end than worried about how it ends. I’m downright terrified at the idea that there may only be roughly 10 more games of Markus left. What a treat it’s been so far

I was guilty of that. Really thought they'd win tonight and turn it into a nice finish. Nail seems to be in the coffin now.

SJU and SHU will likely be teams 3 and 4. Might stop there. Butler has a shot. Maybe a bid thief in NYC as well.

The Johnnies and The Hall are kind of tied at the hip. The Hall needs to win as many as they can and if The Johnnies can also get on a run it directly helps the The Hall. Gives them one more  quality win.

This is the single most important reason to get more conference teams in the tourney.

It's not about prestige or media exposure. The Big 10 and ACC will dominate discussions of how many teams earned bids, likely earning at least 8 bids each. And after the Round of 64, the Big East will probably be down to Marquette and Villanova still alive anyway. Unless someone like Butler pulls off an upset, the others will be quickly forgotten.

I don't see any reports on any averages for leagues or networks at this time. What I can say Duke is liquid gold for ESPN. The Big Ten has done well for FS1. Two of the biggest regular season games ever on FS1 happened this year from the Big Ten on FS1. The Pac12 has stunk on every network. Heck, ESPN pulled the Pasch/Walton crew off a Pac-12 game to work a WCC game in Gonzaga/San Diego.

There has only been one game so far on CBS. The other game is next Sunday. Villanova at Xavier on CBS.  CBS Sports Network is not a rated network. The other Big East team's game on CBS was considered a AAC home game.

St. John's/Georgetown (CBS): 945K
UCONN/Villanova @MSG (12/22, CBS ): 1.125M

It's like Creighton watched DePaul in November. Or Louisville the last two games in how to lose a game. 4 turnovers in the final minutes. Six time Creighton lost a lead with under four minutes left.

That said, a much needed win for Seton Hall.

Bracketmatrix lists them as first four out.

One thing I'll give Butler... is that their resume is cleaner than some bubble teams.  If Georgetown moves back to Q2 then they'll have no "bad" and/or Q3 losses... and still a couple opportunities to have more than one Q1 win.  So it's possible they can make something happen. 

So... basically, we're sayin' there's a chance.

Great call! If only anybody else on the planet knew as much basketball as you've forgotten.

In other news ...

Could Booth possibly have sucked more down the stretch? The worst 2 in the BE by far.

What kind of coach blows a 19-point lead? Plus, Wright never plays his 5-star recruit. Nova can do better - I'd take Danny Manning over him in a heartbeat!

Paschall looks bad. Maybe he's hurt, and playing him is dumb and dangerous.

This year's Nova team doesn't have the same poise that Nova teams had in the past. Both Booth and Paschall tried a little too hard to be the man. Launched a lot of early threes rather than working their offense.

We also beat a  Utah team that featured Mike Newlin who had a long successful NBA career and in the final  The Johnnies had Billy 'The Whopper " Paultz who had a great run in the NBA and ABA.  Our guys put on a great show at the Garden  in that last game in front of a packed and very loud crowd.

Nova definitely a bit off right now. I actually thought they looked slow against us for 32 minutes until they decided to make a game of it.  Big opportunity tonight.  @ Seton Hall still terrifies me for future games.

Best position/chance our team has had for an (outright) reg season champ in quite some time.

They're in, but it will be awfully dicey if they finish with sub-.500 league records. Georgetown also likely crawled back into the conversation last night. Their win over Nova gives them 3 Q1 wins while Illinois' recent surge has them knocking on the door of becoming a fourth.

I would much rather GTown in over Hall or Johnnies. I really dislike both of those programs. SJU has a massively inflated view of where they stand all time and SHU annoys me ever since Pope and Hazel played.

We just need Wojo to keep the team focused on the next game and not what others are doing. As long as he does that hopefully we can avoid the losses that should never happen. Marquette is no longer the team hunting for the big wins at the end of the season to increase their resume, instead we have become the hunted with two bubble teams as our last two games.

Luckily, we don't control the outcome of these games so we're free to speculate and dissect Big East outcomes all we want.  After all, the better the conference does in the tournament, the better for MU in the long run. 

Besides, you see these teams so much during the year, do you not have any interest in how it shakes out?  If not, why bother clicking on the "Big East Conference Results" thread?

I started a whole thread on me being concerned about the DePaul game. I was wrong about that game because we beat the stuffin' out of 'em. And somehow, my thread didn't prevent us from beating Nova. I thought I had more control than that, but I guess not.

So we won on the road against a top-75 NET team. Does our NET automatically go up? Does this loss - at home to a top-20 team - hurt Providence?

I guess I still don't understand the system very well.

As I used to tell my buddies when they were describing whatever golf game they wanted to play: "Just tell me how much I owe at the end of the round."

The win and loss, no. Had we won by 1, our NET likely goes down while Providence's goes up. However because of the margin of victory, I expect ours will improve and theirs decline. That's why this, while a Quadrant 1 win now, will probably be Q2 by tomorrow. We beat Providence so bad I expect them to drop out of Q1.

Probably 3-6 would've been ideal to keep rankings status quo, but I think it's worth the beat down because it will help us more in the other metrics that show up on the Team Sheet.

I just find it somewhat ironic that we go in and give a hard fought effort with the result being a Quad 1 win, but because we did so well, it's likely Q2 by the next morning.

It’ll be interesting to see what this does to their NET ranking.  Currently sitting at 90, should jump close to the top 75 cut off to make the away win against them at Q1 win.

Between them, Gtown and Providence, hope that at least 1-2 of them fight their way above that mark.  Providence, dropped 8 places to 81 after our convincing defeat yesterday, but all three could end up right around that 75 cutoff.

Yes it is utter nonsense. Roll my eyes every time people on here spout this junk. Oh they lost at home. They will play better now. Oh they want a signature win. They will play better now.

Glad to see Travis Steele  and X get a quality win.

I believe Steele has done a very good job in his first year. He was able to pick up 3 serviceable Grad transfers to help the key returners hold the fort this year.

X has an impressive 5 man recruiting class coming in next year .  Other than the grad transfers, the rest of the key players will be returning as juniors and seniors. They should be well on their way back next season.

A couple comments:

I believe I got the tiebreakers correct, so if things hold serve (they won't) those will be the standings heading into the BET.  Bracket would looks as follows:

Play-in Round
Georgetown vs. Depaul
Seton Hall vs. Providence

Quarters
Marquette vs. Hall/PC Winner
Creighton vs. Xavier

Gtown/Depaul winner vs. Nova
SJU vs. Butler

The number of NCAA tourney bids in this scenario would be really interesting.  If Hall loses out, they kill any chance they have. But they have big opporuntities with both Nova and Marquette at home to finish Big East play.  Seton Hall vs. Gtown next Saturday is really a must win for both teams, but especially Hal.  Best case scenario for maximizing bids is most likely Hall beating Gtown, but Gtown sweeping Depaul (instead of splitting as Trank projects).  It would be nice for one or more of Butler, Seton Hall or Gtown to get to 9-9.

If things ends up as they do in the trank projected standings, I think one of the 8-10 teams sqeak into Dayton, but certainly not ideal.  Xavier and Depaul being decent this year has really brought down the middle.

I'm cheering for Providence and Xavier to win out, and for Georgetown to finish 3-1. Would basically be trading 2 Q3 wins for 2 Q1 wins.

Interestingly enough, IF this is the way it ended, To me, MU would have a tougher 1st game in the BE tourney(Hall/PC), then they would a 2nd game(if they advanced) vs Creighton/Xavier.

We clearly view these things in a different lens, but I just don't see how PC, X and Gtown's minor NET movements and therefore Q1/Q2 placements are going to mean much of anything for us in terms of seeding disparity.  We're likely a 3 seed regardless.  Win out, we probably get a 2.  Slip up once in BE play and lose in the BET, still probably a 3. I just don't think those teams becoming bottom tier Q1 wins as opposed to Q2 mean anything for us.

But PC, X and Gtown winning out (besides Gtown @ MU) will be absolutely devastating for the Big East getting more than 3 bids.  The league will likely only get 3 bids in that scenario.  Maybe Gtown sneaks into Dayton at 9-9 for the 4th bid, but it would be close.  I don't think the bottom feeders winning games and effectively killing any chance for the decent bubble teams (Hall and Butler) making the dance is good for the league.

The thing most responsible for "bring down the middle" is the fact that the teams in the middle aren't good.

We are good, Villanova is usually good and St John's is sometime times good.

The rest of the conference? Not good.

Meh.  Depends on your definition of "good".  60% of the league is the top 60 in kenpom.  Gtown, X and PC are in the top 95.  Depaul is just outside of top 100.  I think its pretty safe to say that every team in the Big East is a top 75-80 team in the nation. 

The league is pretty balance 3-10.  I don't personally consider any of those teams "bad", but certainly non of them are great.  There are a lot more "bad" teams in the ACC, SEC and Pac12 than there are in the Big East.

On a small scale, it's because despite the bracket reveal show, the committee starts with a blank slate on selection Sunday. I want our resume looking as good as possible so we can get that 2 seed. Or maybe even a 1 if something crazy happens in the final weeks. Also, the only team that would be kept out of the tournament by those teams winning out is Butler who isn't in anyway. Seton Hall could still make it in by beating us or Nova or having a good BET. Plus the 3-1 finish may bump Georgetown in, so the total # of bids is likely not impacted.

On a large scale, I would burn the entire conference to the ground if it helped Marquette even the slightest bit. My loyalty to the Big East only extends as far as it helps Marquette.

A potential first game vs Seton Hall wouldn't be the most ideal but not terrible. A Creighton or X semi final is great.

Nova and SJU on the other side together and they have Butler and Gtown(who has played them to a 2-2 record with competitive losses) on their side as well.

To each their own, I just don't think the Big East getting 3 bids is good for anyone, and its definitely not good for league prestige/notoriety, which means a fair bit IMO. At the end of the day, obviously our rooting interests and opinions don't matter and what happens will happen, but if MU takes care of their own business, they don't need to be concerned about what quadrant X, PC and Gtown land in.

Hall really needs to beat Gtown next Saturday to get in.  They are 7-8 currently, and they aren't going to sweep to MU and Nova last 2 games of the season.  Maybe they sneak in at 8-10 (their resume would certainly still look better than their peers, IMO), but that is obviously dicey.  A loss to Gtown would be devastating to their chances.

And PC beating Butler twice would kill them.  Butler still has a decent shot to get in.  So yah, killing 2 BE bubble teams and replacing them with a superduper iffy at large candidate in Gtown at 9-9 is less than ideal.

Thank You! This is exactly how I feel, always have. You and I might be on this island alone. I couldn't care less how many BE teams make it to the dance, and the one's that do..I hope they get eliminated early. I care ONLY about Marquette's success, and their success alone. If no one else from the BE made the tourney...fine with me. I want MU to be the class of the conference, every single year. Whatever MOST helps MU, I am all for. I have ZERO loyalty to any of the other BE teams and will only "root" for any other BE teams, if it somehow helps MU. It has always been weird to me how other people want other teams in the conference to do good in the tourney because it helps make the conference look better...That's flawed logic to me. I want MU to look good, so they look good, regardless of how the rest of the conference is viewed. Conferences don't get bids, teams do.

Yah, its pretty ideal. I wouldn't really want to play Hall first game after they just played the night before if I had my choice, but its not awful.

Butler has a better resume than Georgetown today.

And it effectively kills 2 Big East bids, unless you think Seton Hall is going to lose to Gtown, and then turn around and beat Marquette and Villanova.  Possible?  I guess.  But highly unlikely.  Hall will have a much better chance if they beat Gtown, and try to steal of of the 2 against MU/Nova.  Honestly, if Hall beats one of MU/Nova and loses their other 2 BE games, they should get in at 8-10.  Their resume will be significantly better than anyone else around the bubble.  But I wouldn't feel very good on selection sunday if I were them with a sub .500 league record.

Yes, exactly this.  There have been multiple examples of people commenting that what the big east as a whole doesn't matter, that only MU performance matters.  They fail to realize that we want the BE to do as well as possible (as long as it doesn't negatively impact MU) because more teams in the tourney = more tournament money to MU, more prestige for the league which thus prestige for MU, better future tv contract for league and thus again more money for MU, etc. 

What is good for the league is good for MU.  But in all this, I don't believe anyone wants the BE success to come at the expense of any accomplishments MU may get.  If anything, it would only enhance the triumph of those accomplishments.

To be clear, I'm saying the same thing as UWW2MU. I want the Big East to do well but not at Marquette's expense.

Put another way, if the choice is between an MU 3 seed/6 BE bids & an MU 3 seed/3 BE bids, I would choose option A.

But if the choice is between an MU 2 seed/3 BE bids & an MU 3 seed/6 BE bids, I would take the MU 2 seed all day every day. Hell, I would take the MU 2 seed even if meant zero other bids from the Big East.

I know, it wasn't a jab at you.  I think 5 or 6 BE bids is pretty important tho, so I am certainly rooting for that.  I also rooting for MU to win every game they play.  Marquette's seeding will take care of itself.  Providence, Gtown and X winning games the next 2 weeks isn't going to make MU a 2 seed.

Yet you can't ignore that if the BE had more high quality, bid-worthy teams, Marquette would probably already be solidly on the 2 line with their conference record.  Better conference = better wins and less damaging losses.  What's good for the BE is good for Marquette.

You also can't ignore that if all the other teams were better, we probably wouldn't have the same record.  We aren't 12-2 with the quality that the conference had last year.  Part of the reason that we've only lost twice since Thanksgiving is that we haven't played as many really good teams that other's on the 1-3 line have.  It's not our fault, we can only play who's on the schedule, but if we think we deserve a 2 and get knocked to a 3 because of the strength of the conference, we'll get no sympathy from Gonzaga or Nevada.

Actually, I don't agree, if MU had beaten Indiana, and/or SJU even once(especially at home), I think they would be locked into a #2 seed right now, and a chance at a #1 seed. Heck beating just IU may have been enough.

I'm just saying that as much as we rip the Houston, Nevada and Gonzaga's of the cbb world for not playing anyone in conference, we should also look at the fact that we've played exactly one ranked team in 2019.  Again, not our fault, we can only play who's on the schedule, but if you want a spot on the top 2 lines, and your resume gets put next to some of these other teams that have played 5, 6, 7 ranked teams in the same span, they're going to get the benefit of the doubt, even if they have a couple more losses than us.

Your point is correct, but I'd like to reframe it. The NCAA doesn't use the AP rankings.

We have played 0 teams in the top 25 in 2019. Nova is NET 28, St John's is 47, Butler 49.

DePaul at 108 is the only team outside of the Top 100 that we've played this year, but it's still not the most challenging schedule.

I still will root for the BigEast team in the tourney.  Those NCAA unit payouts can add up.

Basically one unit for every game.  If the conference has one team that's out in the first game.
That one unit is a bit over $272,000, which will be paid to the conference for each of the next 6 years.  Roughly $1.7 million over 6 years, divided by the teams in the conference.

5 units per year for each of six years, pays a conference over $8 million a year.
averaging 10 units per year, pays the conference over $16.3 million a year.

The BigEast earned 13 units last season.  At that pace that's over $21 million a year.

The Pac12 earned 3 units.   Split at least 12 ways, means each school will take home $400-425,000 each year.  Doesn't make a dent in their athletic budgets.

Your point is correct, but I'd like to reframe it. The NCAA doesn't use the AP rankings.

We have played 0 teams in the top 25 in 2019. Nova is NET 28, St John's is 47, Butler 49.

DePaul at 108 is the only team outside of the Top 100 that we've played this year, but it's still not the most challenging schedule.

We're talking about getting a 2 seed right, so lets compare to the current 2s in bracketmatrix.

MU has had 3 Q1A games, we're 2-1, and only have 1 more in the regular season

Tenn has had 6 Q1A games, they're 3-3, and have 3 more Q1A games in the regular season

MSU  has had 7 Q1A games and are 4-3 with 1 more opportunity

Mich has had 6 Q1A games and are 4-2 with 2 more opportunities

UNC has had 7 Q1A games, and are 4-2 with 1 more opportunity

Yes, we've had fewer opportunities which was largely out of our control, but it's that much harder to stack up to the teams with 7-10 Q1A games.  The same reason that Nevada gets knocked, and that Gonzaga has gotten knocked for years, is affecting us this year.  Just winning alone will not get us to the 2 line, we will also need some help.

*I believe I counted Q1A games correctly, I might be off by 1 or 2, but the point still stands.

I still will root for the BigEast team in the tourney.  Those NCAA unit payouts can add up.

That one unit is a bit over $272,000, which will be paid to the conference for each of the next 6 years.  Roughly $1.7 million over 6 years, divided by the teams in the conference.

Look, everyone talks about the $$ aspect of getting more bids, it's better for MU etc..MU has NEVER regardless of conference, ever skimped on spending in men's basketball. Besides, what's going to happen?? Is the conference going to fold because they don't have enough $$?? When has that EVER happened?? The better the conference is, does NOT raise MU's profile...MU raises MU's profile. What I mean is, and here's an example...has playing in the American conference hurt Houston this year?? They are going to be a 2 or 3 seed in the NCAA's. For years and years Memphis rolled through their conference and earned a #1 seed and made the national Championship game in 2008.

Villanova has won 2 of the last three national Championships...do you think they need the conference to be really good in order to get National recognition, or get good recruits?? Hell No! The BE could be one of the worst conferences in America, and because Nova has those two National Championships, they will do just fine by themselves. I want MU to dominate the BE, every single year, whether it's up, down or somewhere in between...That's the BEST thing MU could do for themselves. Whether 6 teams make the tourney from the BE in a given year, or two do, what matters most for MU is how MU does..period.

Big East NET  Rankings as of games of Sunday February 24. It will be interesting when they post the actual formulas for the rankings to see simulations of how schedules could have made a difference. For example what if DePaul would have done an OOC tournament this year <and won a couple of games, how would that impact the rest of the league?

New Old

The basic point you are making is that we control our own destiny is always true.

However, being a member of a financially strong conference is critically important from the standpoint of competing for recruits at the highest levels. Recruits are filtered and sorted by their talent level. That sorting and filtering goes both ways. The recruits want to play at the highest level they can. The Big East is perceived by recruits ,and their families ,as a highly desirable conference. In fact , outside of the blue blood programs, Big East schools can consistently compete and sign  the top talent with every school out there. It is a fact kids want to play against quality competition in fancy facilities.

Hence, it is important that year in and year out Big East fields as many teams in the tournament and hopefully they do well. Villanova winning two National Championships helps every school in the conference not only with money but with perception at the recruiting level. Villanova is now getting the type of recruits it could only dream about in years past. The league as a whole is upping their recruiting profile as a result of Villanova success.

This Big East league success all feeds into the next TV contract. Very important to sustain a quality TV deal not only for financial reasons but for visibility. That also enables the schools to schedule in ways that are advantageous. Not only buy games but home and home with other quality schools.
Remember Big East does not have football, so it does need it is flagship sport ,Basketball, to be at the gold standard of college basketball. 

To see what happens when a conference as a whole does not succeed, look at the West Coast Conference. Their conference is academically similar to ours , faith based mid sized schools and they all have good endowments. The success has not been there consistently beyond Gonzaga, St.Marys and Brigham Young.  Hence sometimes they sometimes only get one bid for the conference. The lack of specific financial resources for facilities etc really hurts their image with recruits. Becomes a self fulfilling thing.

Here's the thing Herman...Why is Villanova pulling in those recruits?? I can 100% guarantee you it has a hell of a lot more to do with Nova winning 2 Natty's in the last three years then it does how good the BE is or isn't. If you are that good, kids want to come and play there regardless. You brought up the WCC...thanks you for bringing that up..Is Gonzaga hurt by the weakness of their conference?? They made the National Champ game, they have been(and are currently) ranked #1 in the country...they get top recruiting classes...They blow through that conference every single year...it hasn't stopped them from being one of the top teams in CBB has it?? If you're good, kids will play for you, it's that simple. Be good enough to compete for a National Championship year in and year out...you will get recruits, regardless of conference affiliation, TV contracts or anything else.

The BE, whether good or bad year in and year out, has little effect on Marquette's success going forward. You know what has the most effect on MU's success going forward?? They do. It's that simple. If they can sustain the level they are at now(and go higher) in the next few years, I guarantee you kids they never thought they could get will come play for MU...Why?? Because of how good THEY are, not how good or bad the conference is. In fact, a stronger conference can hurt MU...they could get kids MU would lose out on because they have been more successful then MU. MU raises it's own profile by their production on the court..and they will be just fine.

It might be considered splitting hairs but I feel like you are missing the point.  A good or great Marquette team benefits from a strong conference in every way.  Of course their own performance will be the biggest determining factor.  But here we are, eyeing a possible runaway reg season BE title, and having conversations about hoping for a 2 seed if we win out AND win the BET.

 Sorry dude, conference performance matters.  Better opponents = more battle tested teams + better seeding = better odds of deep tourney runs = more opportunities for sustained success.  Point at Gonzaga all you want, they are an outlier. 

If this team is as good as we all think it is, I don't see how how it would be a disservice to them to have 3-5 more games against quality opponents before going into the time of year where 10 minutes of sloppiness ends your season.  Not to mention we'd be a 2 seed instead of a 3

MU FF appearances in Beast: 0

Why did we ever accept an invitation to a conference that has hurt our program.  Further, why aren't we still independent, we had far more success without a conference than we've had with one.

MU would be a 2 seed right now had they just beaten Indiana..that has nothing to do with how good or bad the Big East has been this year. That's just reality. I have to point to Gonzaga, because they just keep doing it, year after year after year. That's more than just an outlier. Look at Houston this year...the American isn't a great conference, and Houston has rolled through it...yet here they are as a 3 seed, and quite possibly a 2 seed when it's all said and done. I'd say their conference hasn't effected them at all.

I get what you are saying to an extent, but I just don't think conference success has that big of an effect on MU going forward. MU's success is based simply on them..You really don't think that if MU was Nova and had won 2 of the last 3 Natty's, that because the Big East was down a little bit this year that top recruits would think twice about coming to MU?? Hell to the no. kids want to go where they will win more than anything else. Do kids go to Duke and UNC because of the ACC or because they are Duke and UNC?? The ACC could be trash every year and the top kids would still go to Duke and UNC, why?? Because they know that they have a legit shot to play for a Natty every single year.

If MU continues to go say 30-4 every year for the next three years as an example, but the BE isn't all that good, I assure you, MU will still be a 3-4 seed at worst every year and possibly a 2.

I have NEVER ever been one to complain about the non conference schedule like some do every year. That being said, if they think the BE is going to be down, then they need to schedule accordingly in the non conference to make up for that. I think we saw some of that this year honestly.

Theres a fault in your logic here. Yes, if we beat IU we could be a 2 seed, but if BE is better and we had same record plus IU win, we could be a 1 seed. Q1 wins matter.

Plus houston coach even had an interview where he talked about the challenges he faces recruiting because of the conference. I'll try to find it. Either way, it will be hard for them to maintain success year in and year out.

Another factor, when you're the big (or only) dog in a conference, what happens when the coach leaves? What will Gonzaga be post-Few? Will it look like what happened when Memphis was the last titan standing in C-USA and Cal left? When you have a quality conference, it's easier to sustain that success because people are coming for the entire league.

Lets look at the Villanova case. Prior to the reincarnation of the Big East in its current form, the previous version of the Big East was considered to be the strongest conference in college basketball. It had the full backing of ESPN and an incredible history.  The key seniors and juniors on Villanova's 2015-2016 Championship team  were all recruited under the old Big East structure.

The league was able to come out of the box strong with lots of rated teams and tournament bids its first 5 years out of the box  which kept the momentum going. However, it should be pointed out that the prominent seniors  on the 2016-17 classes of Big East team that got 7 bids were recruited under the Old Big East Structure. The players Villanova are recruiting now that they earned a second national title are of a significantly higher profile than prior years. Those players are not going to play in a conference that is perceived to be of lesser quality. Hence, it is very important that the league itself maintain a strong foundation.

The non Villanova schools are all benefiting from the league being strong. Look at Xavier, they just lost their top tier coach, yet they were able to land a very big recruiting class for next year and are continuously involved with many top level players. Some of that is because Xavier has been a consistent winner. However,the other part is that they also offer kids a chance to play in a top tier conference.

The basic point I will agree with you on is that winning and getting in tournaments can lead to continue success and recruit interest. However, having a strong league , lots of financial resources and visibility make the path much easier for the entirety of the conference. A strong league is what enables teams to reload when they have an off year and not have to rebuild.

History and rivalries are what make conferences interesting to fans and Media. Where there is fan interest and excitement recruits follow. Big East keeps building in those areas. We are six years into the conference as currently constituted. We have done well as a league without MU and Georgetown tracking to their historical levels. MU is now back and Georgetown is on the way. Even DePaul has moved from wretched to solid mediocrity. Next year they may even be a mid tier team.

MU has to make the most of the chance it will have this year, hopefully Markus comes back next year and we will have another chance. I think if we win big this year, all the great local players we are looking at become realistic possibilities for signing.

I guess my point is, I want MU to make a deep run in the tourney every year, if they do, I could care less what the other BE teams do in the tourney. Unless it has a significant impact on MU in some way shape or form as far as the tourney goes(seeding etc), I will NEVER root for them. If in a given year MU happens to lose early in the tourney, I'm not going to take any solace in the fact that "well, at least Butler and Xavier are in the Sweet 16". No, screw them! I want the spotlight on MU.

It's like being a Packers fan as I am and rooting for the Bears or Vikings to do well because it makes the Division look better. Or being a Brewers fan and rooting for the Cubs or Cardinals. Most will say pro sports is different, but to me, no matter what, rooting for another team in your own division or conference is rooting for the enemy. I don't want to see them be successful at my teams expense.

Not the same at all, the bears or Vikings don't have to share the $$ they get for being successful with the packers. Additionally, if the whole division is top seeds in the NFL  there's no consideration for the last place team, whereas college that would help them get a look with those were their only losses.

That being said if it came down to MU knocking one of those teams out in the round of 32 so we could get a sweet 16 or that team knocking us out in the same round and they were a shoe in for the Final four I'd pick MU every time (see 2011 us vs cuse)

Except the further our conference brethren go in the tournament, the more $ MU gets to spend on retaining coaching staff, facilities, recruiting, etc. It also makes it easier to recruit to a highly competitive conference.

Best case scenario is that MU & the entire BEast go undefeated in the non-con, MU goes undefeated in conference play, and MU wins the natty in an all-BEast final four

As others have pointed out, NFL and NCAA basketball are very different because of $$$. But beyond that I want to address the bolded. How are conference brethern do in non-conference play has a HUGE impact on MU's seeding. We want every team in the Big East to go undefeated in non-conference play. If the other Big East teams had done better in the non-conference, we could be the #1 team in the nation right now instead of fighting to get into the top 10.

So you should always root for Big East teams in non-conference play because it helps Marquette. If you don't care about the money or prestige then you don't need to cheer for them in the tournament.

Unless it has a significant impact on MU in some way shape or form as far as the tourney goes(seeding etc), I will NEVER root for them. If in a given year MU happens to lose early in the tourney, I'm not going to take any solace in the fact that "well, at least Butler and Xavier are in the Sweet 16". No, screw them! I want the spotlight on MU.

It's like being a Packers fan as I am and rooting for the Bears or Vikings to do well because it makes the Division look better. Or being a Brewers fan and rooting for the Cubs or Cardinals. Most will say pro sports is different, but to me, no matter what, rooting for another team in your own division or conference is rooting for the enemy. I don't want to see them be successful at my teams expense.

As stated above, the NFL and NCAAB are very different situations, and for reasons they state are not comparable.

Also, no one here is saying the bolded part in your message.  MU is still priority #1.

Think of it this way.  If you are commuting to work on the interstate, your goal is to get to work on time or early.  You don't care if the other cars on the road get to their destination on time.  Also, as you mentioned, you have no solace if you are late but others make it on time.  You the commuter only care about you.  However, if everyone else is going slow or there is a traffic jam, it is going to affect what time you get to work.  Commuting to work in the city and NCAAB success both do not happen in a bubble.  While you control what time you leave for work, that you have a full tank of gas, you check traffic reports (just as MU recruits well, plays hard, practices well, etc) outside factors will affect you/MU. 

I know it's a weird analogy, but all we're saying is we want MU to do as well as possible, and a strong BE helps us do that, so we're going to support the BE right up to the point of where it might negatively affect us.

Except the further our conference brethren go in the tournament, the more $ MU gets to spend on retaining coaching staff, facilities, recruiting, etc. It also makes it easier to recruit to a highly competitive conference.

Best case scenario is that MU & the entire BEast go undefeated in the non-con, MU goes undefeated in conference play, and MU wins the natty in an all-BEast final four

I don't think MU will ever have a problem spending on their BB program.

Zero sum game my man. If we don't get it someone else does, meaning they have more to spend on their program. As a competitor, you should care about getting as far ahead of the competition as possible.

The NET has made zero sense thus far...UW lost AT Indiana, and yet only dropped one or two spots I believe.
Title: Re: Big East Conference Results
Post by: TAMU Garcia on February 28, 2019, 12:25:23 PM
We dropped three spots. And again, the NET is a score not a ranking. For all we know, we were in a four way tie for 18th with Nevada, Wofford, and Mississippi State and the loss to Nova just dropped us .01 on our score dropping us to 21st.

Wisconsin I believe dropped 2 spots after the loss to Indiana. For all we know, they had 3 point lead on the two teams behind them and those 2 spots were actually a massive drop.

I really wish they would just release the nuts and bolts of the NET.

Doesn't bother me, they don't play all that well in MSG in the BET or during the regular season.

On a side note, what is with the weird BE scheduling where, some teams are playing each other twice in the last three weeks of the season. I mean I don't know that it's necessarily an advantage or a disadvantage either way, it's just weird that Xavier plays SJU twice in three games, DePaul plays Georgetown twice in the last three games, Butler plays Providence twice in the last 4 games. You have an even number of teams, couldn't you make it work where every team plays everyone else once in the first half, and once in the second half?? Again, not an advantage or disadvantage either way i don't think, it's just some weird scheduling.

Just back from Georgetown/Hall game.  There is no way that MU should lose to either of these teams. If they do, then they should look at themselves in the lockeroom mirrors.  I actually had really great seats by the floor and the turnovers, brick shots, time clock violations, etc. were incredible.  Just not good basketball, but ended up a decent ending.

Georgetown - Okinjo is real quick, but him and McClung are turnover prone big time.  Markus may just have a field day. 
                     With the exception of the second overtime, Govan did not hustle, run and appeared disinterested in the
                     game.  In second overtime, he was way better.  BTW, Patrick Ewing is a very large man.

Hall - Two man team, believe Powell had half their points, Marku had most of the others.  Shut down Powell and game is
         over.  They had major losses from last year and they have done just fine but I have no clue how they beat Kentucky

Lets hope MU can play up to their potential for these two teams and no let down.
Title: Re: Big East Conference Results
Post by: Its DJOver on March 03, 2019, 11:57:14 AM
That Gtown/Hall game is exactly why you have to play straight up D in a one possession game late.  At the end of regulation, Gtown doubled Powell and he made the pass for an easy game tying bucket.  At the end of OT, they triple teamed Powell and he made the pass for an easy lay-up. 

Sometimes your best defender will fall down and give Ponds an easy lay-up, but gambling and double or triple teaming him will ultimately end up with an even easier shot for someone else more often than not.

A team that many here thought would be the class of the conference just got swept..by Depaul..yet MU lost to them twice..think about that..SJU lost to everyone in the BE except MU and Creighton...but..on the plus side it helps MU towards the #1 seed..makes SJU's task tougher of finishing 3rd now

St john is a trainwreck offensively.  Not just this game which was a difference of Strus simply going off but to have so many weapons and stand around each possesion with five guys literally standing in place.  No ball movement, no player movement and then a bad shot is so broken and hard to watch.  If i was an SJU grad i would be beside myself.  Mullin needs to revamp his offensive philospohy or get a new offensive coordinator.  Less than impressed with ST. Jean.

Alternatively they could recruit kids that come out of basketball cultures where winning is primary objective. Of course that is easier said than done.

That team is toast. They are going to lose by 10+ at Xavier and lose in the first round of the BET. They will miss the NCAA tournament.

The bubble is so bad that 8-10 might be enough, which is sad when you consider we went 9-9 last year with a better team. Those three wins over us & Nova are big.

At this point, beyond winning our two remaining games, I think the following are important.

-If we want to win the BE regular season title, most likely need at least 1 of Seton Hall over Nova, or X over SJU.  X over SJU puts SJU likely in Dayton at 8-10, but we really don't want SJU in a tie for 3rd place since they swept us.  No one swept Nova, so I don't believe there is away to get BE regular season title tie breaker over Nova if SJU is tied for 3rd. 

-As far as maxing Big East bids, any wins for Depaul, PC or Butler at this point are not good for that goal.  Xavier over Butler, Creighton over PC, GTown over Depaul, Creighton over Depaul are best for trying to get more bids. 

It is going to be very interesting to see how this shakes out.  It is still possible for just 2 teams over .500, one at .500 (one of X or SJU have to be .500 since they still play eachother and both have 8 wins), and the rest 8-10 or 7-11. Crazy.

Actually, nope I think I was right.  3rd seed is X and Creighton.  Both Nova and Marquette are 3-1 against that "mini conference", therefore it would go to 3rd tie breaker, which is BE road record.

I actually think Xavier wins both this week to go 10-8, Georgetown splits to go 9-9, Creighton wins both to go 9-9 and SJU loses(obviously if I think Xavier wins both), to go 8-10. That's what I think will happen, and if so, MU would win the tiebreaker because of their sweep of Xavier.

It should be noted that the #1 seed tie breaker does not matter for the regular season title.  A tie is co-champs.

Marquette is outright champs with two wins and a Villanova loss.

Nova needs either a win and MU loss, or two MU losses for the outright title.

Not sure if I want to root for STJ. They annoy me and I want them hem to lose...but want another BE team in the tourney so torn. SHU is toast methinks.

Xavier losing tonight, really hurt MU from everything I can tell...at least if you project correctly what happens the rest of this week. That loss to Creighton may absolutely sting come Saturday afternoon. If you ASSUME the following..Georgetown wins tomm night vs DePaul, and Creighton beats Providence...that means at that point..Georgetown is 9-8, Xavier, SJU and Creighton are 8-9(the battle for 3rd) going into Saturday. Fast forward to Saturday...You assume GT loses to MU, they finish at 9-9. Assume Creighton beats DePaul at home...they finish 9-9, and then the winner of SJU/Xavier finishes 9-9. So you have:

Georgetown 9-9
Creighton-9-9
Xavier/SJU-9-9

If it's SJU at 9-9, MU will lose the tiebreaker, because in the "mini" conference of Xavier, Georgetown, Creighton...SJU would have the best record via their two wins over Creighton...SJU finishes third in this scenario. MU gets the #2 seed(remember this all ASSUMES an MU-Nova tie).

If it's Xavier, Georgetown and Creighton that finish 9-9...Creighton wins that tie breaker and finishes third due to their sweep of Georgetown. MU loses that tiebreaker.

Bottom line, MU fans need to root hard for Providence to beat Creighton tomm night..if that happens, and Georgetown wins, then there can ONLY be a two way tie for third at 9-9 under this scenario...and that would be either GT and SJU, or GT and Xavier. Obviously if it's SJU tied with anyone, MU loses the tiebreaker..Should Georgetown and Creighton both lose tomorrow night, then the ONLY scenario for third is the winner of Xavier vs SJU Saturday...that's the third place team.

Had Xavier won tonight, MU's path was much easier..Now, it really comes down to them beating SJU Saturday, and Creighton losing one of two(they have two at home).It could all be moot of course if MU wins out and Nova loses @ Hall Saturday.

At this point in the season we are basically in win out the season mode. There are no more teams that are easy victories.

I would actually prefer to play The Johnnies in the BET and get more reps in against a long athletic type team. We are going to have to face teams like that in the tournament anyway.

I think mediocre is fair. But I also think the BE has 10 teams that could legitimately win the BET a probably win a game or two in the dance. Certainly a fall off after MU/Nova, but all 8 of those teams can play.

I’m not being a smartass here, but IF Marquette wins the Big East in a tie with Villanova is it really that important that they get the 1 seed?

Your post makes it seem so, but I don’t really see the importance. The accomplishment will already have been had in the title (although in a split) so I would almost prefer Marquette as the 2 seed playing the last game of the night (instead of first of the day) so that I can watch on Thursday

I don't necessarily think it's important to get the #1 seed...but some people might, and that's okay. I just wanted to let people know where things stand. I do however agree with you...the #2 seed would be best from a viewing perspective(though regardless, I will be watching).

Ha!  Well I have plenty.  I just prefer not to use it, and when I look at my calendar for that day I probably can't anyway.  I also have to travel the Friday of the first round of the NCAA tournament so I'm hoping for Thursday/Saturday.

If it's SJU at 9-9, MU will lose the tiebreaker, because in the "mini" conference of Xavier, Georgetown, Creighton...SJU would have the best record via their two wins over Creighton...SJU finishes third in this scenario. MU gets the #2 seed(remember this all ASSUMES an MU-Nova tie).

If my understanding is correct, that procedure would be used to determine the third seed, but not third place. For a MU-Nova tiebreaker, those teams at 9-9 would all be considered tied for third, and it would be the records against that mini-conference.

I'm probably being too cynical but Seton Hall is going to get allllllllllll the calls tomorrow

Agreed, I think they'll be allowed to play very aggressive defense, and their steals rate is fairly good (#92) while our ability to avoid steals is fairly terrible (#292). That differential has potential to become exacerbated in their own building (we turned it over 20 times against them earlier in the season). Then another thing I don't like is they are a terrible 3 point shooting team (#283), but if they're the agressors and get in a rhythm, those could start dropping. Absolutely need to protect the ball tonight, can't have another massive TO differential like the past 2 games.

“So, if the Beers beat Detroit and Denver beats Atlanta in the American Southwestern Division East Northern, then Milwaukee goes to the Denslow Cup, unless Baltimore can upset Buffalo and Charlotte ties Toronto, then Oakland would play LA and Pittsburgh in a blind choice round robin. And if no clear winner emerges from all of this, a two-man sack race will be held on consecutive Sundays until a champion can be crowned.“

This is so fitting...

In my field (teaching), it's almost more difficult to miss a day than it is to be there.  Usually, I can get away with putting the MU game on in the back of the room though.

A lot of good work here. We'll know more after tonight's games, obviously, but this is very interesting.

If the Thursday bracket shakes out this way, I honestly could see any team beating any other team without it being an enormous upset. I could see Nova losing to PC or SH; I could see us losing to Butler or DeP (won't happen, of course, but not crazy to think it could); and both X-StJ and CU-GU would be toss-ups.

Truly wide open this year. A team like X or CU could get hot and win the thing for sure.

JJJ, this is great stuff thanks..But I'm curious...I'm sure you are correct, but IF this scenario unfolds, where Creighton and X are tied for 3rd..Creighton gets the third seed because of the win over MU...so..does that then make Creighton the 3rd place team for TIEBREAKER purposes only?? I know the tie breaker says "the team or group of teams that occupy the highest spot in the standings", so I'm assuming that since TECHNICALLY Xavier and Creighton both tie for third place, that's why MU wins the road record tiebreaker, rather then for seeding purposes only, using Creighton as the "third place team", since they win the tiebreaker with X??

Presumably, MU then also wins a tiebreaker if the three teams tied at 9-9 are X, GT and Creighton correct?? MU has more wins over that group then Nova would.

I admittedly may be misremembering tiebreaker rules, but I thought after the 3-1 tie in the miniconference between MU and Nova that it keeps moving down the standings (I don't think it goes to road games unless the teams are tied all the way through the standings).  In this scenario it would move down to STJ and Nova would get the 1 seed.  Am I wrong?

Big East Tournament Seeding Tiebreakers:

1. Head to Head (MU/NOVA 1-1) TIED
2. Record against team or group of tied teams occupying the highest position in the standings. If an advantage is not determined, proceed to the next team or group of tied teams in the standings for comparison. Continue down through the standings until one team gains an advantage. If J5's projections play out:
2a. MU/NOVA 3-1 against CU/X TIED
2b. MU/NOVA 2-2 against GTWN/SJU TIED

Looking at the scenarios, besides our games, the X St. John's game next important for the 1 seed.  X at 9-9 keeps them in the third and gives us the tiebreaker at 9-9.  St. John's win moves them to 9-9 with Creighton, making MU 1-3 against those teams.

Presumably, MU then also wins a tiebreaker if the three teams tied at 9-9 are X, GT and Creighton correct?? MU has more wins over that group then Nova would.

It is record against the next highest seeded team.  Since the seeding goes from 1-10, it would be record against the "mini-conference" tied for 3rd place.  So if 2 or more teams are tied for 3rd place, it would be MU and Nova's record against those particular teams.

I admittedly may be misremembering tiebreaker rules, but I thought after the 3-1 tie in the miniconference between MU and Nova that it keeps moving down the standings (I don't think it goes to road games unless the teams are tied all the way through the standings).  In this scenario it would move down to STJ and Nova would get the 1 seed.  Am I wrong? 

Looks like TAMU has addressed since this question was posed, but it goes from H2H, to record against next highest seeded team all the way down the standings, and then to conference road record.

It's also pretty amazing that 3rd through 10th place are currently separated by only 2 games. The closest anything is to being settled is that MU and Nova both know they'll be 1 or 2.

It doesn't appear that the tiebreakers are going to go MU's way now...first of all I think it's moot, you know after an emotional win like tonight, there is NO WAY Hall beats Nova Saturday...this was their Super Bowl. Anyway, for giggles, let's say Hall does win..you have to assume Creighton wins, and let's say Xavier beats SJU. That means : Creighton, Hall and Xavier are all 9-9. In this scenario, both MU and Nova would have the same record against that group of teams...that means you go to the next group which would be..Georgetown, SJU and possibly Butler, but that is irrelevant as both MU and Nova swept Butler..That would also be tied as Nova and MU both have two losses in that "group. So actually unless I'm missing something(which is entirely possible I am), then I guess MU would actually win the tiebreaker due to road record. If things fall just right..MU's BEST case scenario(and the league office's for not having to work down so many tiebreakers...LOL) is if somehow, DePaul beats Creighton, Hall beats Nova, and Xavier beats SJU. Then Hall and Xavier both tie for 3rd at 9-9 and MU actually wins that tiebreaker. Guess we see how it plays out Saturday.

I don't disagree that Hall is going to lose. I would guess they do too.

But on the other hand, they have momentum and a win locks up a bid. I'd love them to beat Nova but in reality I just want MU to win and the other results can fall as they may. This team needs something good to happen in the worst way.

Nah don’t expect a letdown. Expect a close game but I think nova shows their championship moxie and pulls it off, giving MUs game less luster.

SH needed one win in last two and one in BET. Sat win will likely punch their ticket but even if they don’t get it they should get in if they win their first game in conf tourney, which is no gimme

For MU to get a share of the Big East title, the following definitely needs to happen.

1) MU win over Gtown.

2) Seton Hall win over Villanova.

Both completely conceivable results. At that point it comes down to tiebreakers on the seeding.  As others have said, the seeding isn't really all that important...moreso who ends up on MU's side of the bracket.  But, let's see how the tie breakers would shake out if all expected results on Saturday occurred, except for Hall over Villanova. 

1. Marquette 13-5 (MU and Nova both 4-2 against 3rd place mini conference; MU and Nova both 2-2 against 6th place mini-conference; MU and Nova both 6-0 against 8th place mini conference; next tie breaker is BE road record, which MU wins)
[vs. Gtown (W)]

2. Villanova 13-5
[@SHU (L)]

3. Seton Hall 9-9 (Hall wins mini conference with 3-1 record)
[vs. Villanova (W)]

4. Xavier 9-9 (X 2-2 in mini conference)
[vs. SJU (W)]

5. Creighton 9-9 (CU 1-3 in mini conference)
[vs. Depaul (W)]

6. SJU 8-10 (SJU and GTown both 1-1 vs. Nova; SJU wins ties breaker with 2-0 record against MU)
[@ X (L)]

7. Georgetown 8-10
[@MU (L)]

8. Providence 7-11 (PC 3-1 in 8th place mini conf)

[@PC (L)]

10. Depaul 7-11 (Depaul 1-3 in 8th place mini conf)
[@ Creighton (L)]

So, if all expected results hold, except for Hall beating Nova on Saturday, MU gets the #1 seed.  But that all gets thrown out the window if say...SJU beats X on Saturday as well.

Post by: JamilJaeJamailJrJuan on March 07, 2019, 10:27:33 AM
For MU to get a share of the Big East title, the following definitely needs to happen.

1) MU win over Gtown.

2) Seton Hall win over Villanova.

Both completely conceivable results. At that point it comes down to tiebreakers on the seeding.  As others have said, the seeding isn't really all that important...moreso who ends up on MU's side of the bracket.  But, let's see how the tie breakers would shake out if all expected results on Saturday occurred, except for Hall over Villanova. 

1. Marquette 13-5 (MU and Nova both 4-2 against 3rd place mini conference; MU and Nova both 2-2 against 6th place mini-conference; MU and Nova both 6-0 against 8th place mini conference; next tie breaker is BE road record, which MU wins)
[vs. Gtown (W)]

2. Villanova 13-5
[@SHU (L)]

3. Seton Hall 9-9 (Hall wins mini conference with 3-1 record)
[vs. Villanova (W)]

4. Xavier 9-9 (X 2-2 in mini conference)
[vs. SJU (W)]

5. Creighton 9-9 (CU 1-3 in mini conference)
[vs. Depaul (W)]

6. SJU 8-10 (All teams 2-2 in 5th place mini conf; SJU 1-1 against Nova; 2-0 against MU)
[@ X (L)]

7. Georgetown 8-10 (2-2 in 5th place mini conf; Gtown 1-1 vs Nova; 0-2 against MU)
[@MU (L)]

8. Providence 7-11 (PC 3-1 in 8th place mini conf)
[vs. Butler (W)]

9. Butler 7-11 (Butler 2-2 in 8th place mini conf)
[@PC (L)]

10. Depaul 7-11 (Depaul 1-3 in 8th place mini conf)
[@ Creighton (L)]

So, if all expected results hold, but Hall beats Nova on Saturday, MU gets the #1 seed.  But that all gets thrown out the window if say...SJU beats X on Saturday as well.

That bracket would shake out as follows, which is pretty much the absolute best case scenario for MU.

Georgetown (7) vs. Depaul (10)
Providence (8) vs. Butler (9)

Marquette (1) vs. PC/Butler Winner
Xavier (4) vs. Creighton (5)

Villanova (2) vs. Georgetown / Depaul Winner
Seton Hall (3) vs. St. Johns (6)

I would very much enjoy this bracket. I don't think Butler/PC can beat us barring something crazy. We matchup well. We also matchup well with X. Creighton would be worrisome but I want to just avoid SHU and SJU, really. Any other matchup I like our chances.

Yah its pretty much perfect.  Only thing I would change If I could literally hand pick the bracket would be Gtown as the 5 seed and Creighton as the 6.  Not sure if that could actually play out without digging deep into it.

Pretty cool sceneries generator I found on John Fantas Twitter.

I don’t think there is a scenario where SJU beats X that gives MU the 1 seed. So to get the 1 seed, MU needs to win, Nova needs to lose and X needs to beat SJU.

That would be nuts. Would need lots of luck but you couldn't get a better draw if you handpicked it. Not inconcievable either. Three games would need to go chalk and DePaul and Seton Hall would need to pull the upset. Unlikely but within the realm of possibility.

Yeah—it’s weird. I don’t get it.
However, I don’t have think we can just think this team is going to turn it around and roll Georgetown because of what DePaul did last night or what we did at their place. This team is lost right now and they need to get right. I hope it comes on Saturday afternoon.

I think if we were getting smoked or if we looked clueless for 30-35 of the 40 minutes, I'd agree with you. It's just that the games we were closing earlier in the season we're having trouble now.

I think we'll stomp Georgetown, and I look forward to us winning a close game or two in the BET to get us back on track.

I'm an optimist, yes, but I don't think I'm pollyanna. Just a week and a half ago, there was fear and loathing in NovaLand. Things can and do change quickly in sports.

Hell, I'm old enough to remember the Brewers falling behind 0-2 to the Angels in 1982 but coming back to win, and then following those 3 straight wins by beating the Cardinals 10-0 in Game 1 of the WS. The Brew Crew looked like an unbeatable juggernaut ... until they got beat.

That's sports! Go Marquette!

I think the only game that has for sure NCAA ramifications is Creighton/Depaul.  Creighton has to win. 

Seton Hall for sure punches their ticket with a win over Nova, but I think they're in regardless.

The rest of the games probably aren't super important for NCAA bids.  Butler/PC, both are toast.  Don't think Gtown gets in even if they beat MU.  All three of those teams are AQ or bust.  X maybe has a super outside shot with a win over SJU and run to the BET final, but I doubt it.  They're likely AQ or bust.  SJU should be in even with a L tomorrow, but they'd certainly be a possibility for Dayton at 8-10 in the BE.  If you're rooting for sealing up BE bids, SJU over X is what you should be pulling for.  But that isn't the best scenario for MU at this point.

Should be an interesting day of hoops tomorrow.

With the big caveat there's more games to play,  my concern is that Wojo's behind O'Neill, Crean and Buzz in terms of accomplishments by Year 5. All three past coaches had won a conference championship and had NCAA success in that period.

Let's hope it gets turned another. But, if this is headed to a first round NCAA exit, what exactly has Wojo accomplished? What's he building?

For all those people who clamor incessantly to expand our conference, this years results are Exhibit A for why no new teams are necessary.  Now that DePaul has emerged ,from the depths ,to being a solidly mediocre problem, the league schedule is now a flat out bare knuckles fist fight. I don't have access to the stats on team  experience . However, I surmise most of the teams in the league are young: or alternatively,  have most of their team coming back next year.

This was really the year for MU to excel. For the most part the team did, until the wheels came off the wagon recently. The good news is we now get a chance to reset the season going into the BET. MU can make lemonade out of the recent harvest of lemons. The league parity gives MU the best chance it has ever had to win The BET.

Next year is going to be a much tougher row to hoe. However, here is hoping the guys can get back on track and finish the season up strong.

For all those people who clamor incessantly to expand our conference, this years results are Exhibit A for why no new teams are necessary.

Counterpoint: this year's results are Exhibit A why the league should expand. I've said for years that to have a highly successful league, someone has to lose. In years past, DePaul, St John's, Creighton, and even Marquette has filled that role. This year should be a 7-8 bid year, but because the teams at the bottom of the league are indistinguishable from the teams near the top. 3-10 is the same. If you had 1-2 teams that went 3-15 or worse, we would have far more bids than when everyone goes 7-11 or better.

I agree with your point that we need more bottom dwellers . However my view is that another good team just makes everyone even more equal. This putting even more pressure on non con. As it is a team needs 11 non con wins to be securely off the bubble. I think another team would move that number to 12.

Depaul should go back to irrelevance next season.  Reed and Butz are the only good players that return.  Though Carte'Are Gordon should be eligible by Big East season, and he should be a nice boost. Hall should take a step back without Powell.  Those two should be the bottom dwellers next season, hopefully below 5 wins each.

Seton Hall has only one senior and it ain't Powell. They bring in a nice transfer from Florida State. Assuming no surprise defections,  they'll be pretty good next season.

DePaul will be down again but bring in two good transfers and a great recruiting class (by their standards). Is the spring giant waking up?

There are pieces, just not enough. I think a Bo Ryan type coach could make these guys a top twenty team.

I agree a hall of fame type coach probably would have done better with this group by one or two wins and we would be solidly in the top 20 instead of 23.

Gordon will be eligible sooner for DePaul. They are on the quarter system and he enrolled in winter quarter . DePaul announced he will be eligible in November after the end of the fall quarter. So he will only miss a handful of games .

I think St John's is out. In all the years of the RPI, they never let a team lower than 67 in. A 32-point home loss could easily drop the Johnnies from 64 to 68, especially as Arizona State & Xavier won behind them. Letting the Johnnies in would basically be throwing the NET out in its first year.

Read an article today that said the NET very closely parallels kenpom because of its offensive and defensive efficiency emphasis. Some think that’s good, others bad.
For what it’s worth I think it’s better if it didn’t mirror it so closely (because I think it’s more predictive than based on previous results) and used kenpom as an aside tool. It has its value but also its flaws.

That said StJ bigger issue beyond the poor NET will be its ooc sos, that ish is brutal. However, I think Marquette helps get them in- those two wins along nova will be enough imo (5 Q1s). I think today’s decimation pushes them to tue or wed in Dayton tho

Using any one metric as the determining factor is dumb. I think they’ll use net, but I doubt they’re going to have some arbitrary cut off like the committee seemingly has with RPI.

Also if SJU isn’t in (I think they’re in), then Creighton is getting in. I see no way they only give the Big East 3 bids.

It isn't using one metric, though. St. John's is 79 in Kenpom & was 62 at Sagarin (that will drop) going into yesterday. Some metrics do like them, Pauga has them at 40 & SOR has them at 54. They aren't necessarily dead, but it would likely take an unprecedented decision by the Selection Committee.

I also think Creighton may have fallen out yesterday. Their 17-14 record really doesn't look that great as the D2 win won't be considered, though their SOS likely gives them a better shot (IMO) than the Johnnies. I think the best chance for a 4th Big East bid is Xavier winning the auto.

Yesterday Wright sat Quinerly again, he hasn't played in four games. Then inserts Cole Swider (former top 40 recruit), who has played one minute in the last 15 games, into major sub minutes. Maybe Wright gets a gut feeling thing going on.
Swider had a hand injury.  Just came back over a week ago.

Yah, Creighton is clearly behind SJU IMO.  I don't think Creighton gets in, but I do think SJU is likely in.  I know Lunardi is a just a guy, but he still has them safe from Dayton in his update this morning.  Most of the teams behind them are already out as well (NC State, TCU, Belmont, Texas, Indiana, Clemson, Furman, Lipscomb, UNCG).

I think 95% of Bracket Matrix is operating like the 2014-18 Selection Committee is still in place. If they're right, those teams won't be in. If the Selection Committee that is actually in place operates like the mirrored makeup SC from 2011-13, they'll be in.

This is not entirely accurate.  Palm is quite good at predicting who gets in, he has been less than good at seeding which hurts how they calculate those overall results. 

If you care how accurate the seeding predictions are, don't bother with Palm or Lunardi. If you care who actually gets in, Palm has done well....to the point some have accused CBS of tipping him off.

He is 3rd best in picking teams that get in last five years according to their calculations....yes, could be flawed but seems to match up with the Bracket Matrix findings.

Getting the seeds right is the grade that matters.

I guarantee you that Jerry didn't predict any of these mid to low conference upsets in his 67 out 68 right grade. I will go with Brew or Paint Touches over these blowhards. Lunardi pulls this crap too.

They don't radically change their predictions, over the last few years they may change one pick in the last few hours. Even if what you say is true, Palm has done very well at picking who gets in...better than most....better than Lunardi.

If you can't get the teams right, the most important part in my opinion, how do the seedings matter more? If someone can only get 60 of 68 teams right but does well on the seeds, but someone else has all 68 teams right....I'll take that guy.  Where and what seed is secondary, I want to know who is first, what the seed is second.  Besides, the NCAA has always had a few blunders on seedings, hard to predict blunders and how blundery they will be. These guys aren't privy to all the information the NCAA has, let alone the politics in the room.  They are using their own system, approach. 

I'm happy for Palm and his payday from CBS, he keeps working there and providing value.  Good for him.

Exactly. There are so few games to decide NCAA entrants on Sunday any more anyway as they are more for seeds (all big conferences). I would like to see the stats before the mid to low major tournaments last week. I am sure Jerry predicted St. Mary's was going to win over the Zags to get in.

Frankly, I am more impressed that he is Cheeks' lunch partner than his published accuracy numbers.

Then why do so many do even worse at picking who makes it and who doesn't?  At any rate, of course the conference tournament upsets aren't picked...no one does that.  The point remains, he's missed very few and done far better than most that publicly put their work out there to be scrutinized.  I'm glad he is getting paid nicely for the effort.

I like Cooley, I think he's a good coach, but man, he needs to get some shooters in the worst way.  3-23 from behind the arc last night, and it wasn't exactly just a one-off.  Only one player above 35% from deep on the year.  For reference, we have 5, 6 if you include Cam.

The arc was lengthened to international distance for NIT. However, I agree with you, they do not have that three point threat in their arsenal.  It really hurts them in games where the other team gets out to a big lead.

I was somewhat surprised at first blush. However, it is a late Tuesday night game which was announced Sunday night. So not a lot of time for advance ticket sales. Also, I believe NIT mandates prices for student tickets, so unless some benefactor bought the student tickets not many of them. All things considered it was not a bad crowd. Shows the strength of their fan base.

By way of comparison, Providence had 3057 at the Dunkin Donuts Dome.

SJU just a disaster.

Miss lay ups.

Miss passes

Miss free throws.

ASU has tried to hand them an opportunity to comeback

I was shocked when I heard St Johns has not won an NCCA tournament game in TWENTY YEARS. that is insanely sad.. The roster mullin has made is a freakin joke. ZERO bench. its inexcusable. Imagine how bad they will be without ponds. They could easily go THIRTY YEARS with no tourney wins. That is an utter disgrace of a program

The Johnnies completely waste a talented point guard like Ponds by surrounding him with chuckers. They settled down a bit in second half but it was too late .

I think this is even less likely than MSU over MU. Buffalo is good.

Good luck to your bracket!

no doubt buffalo is good, hoping bobby h has the team boned up duke style at the right time!  that 1st win over the johnnies was a big confidence gainer.  now they have something to believe in plus coach has been there-bobby may be auditioning for ucla or...?

What an annoying article. 

"So with the coaching carousel furiously turning and jobs opening up from the Pac-12 to the SEC to the Mountain West, will Willard’s name emerge for any higher-profile jobs?"

According to 247 MU has the 10th best recruiting class in the BE.

If so it changed from yesterday. MU with Akanno was 9th.

Just checked. It didn't change. St John's 10th & 146 nationally. Marquette 9th & 137 nationally.

I think Xavier is going to be a solid squad next year. They are embracing the NIT and can build off of it.

By most do you mean 4/7 of their top guys? And by 4 four stars do you mean 2 4-stars and 2 3-stars? Unless there are some surprises in their freshman class or surprise improvement I think they will be middle of the pack again

According to ESPN they have 4 four stars coming in 2019.  As to “most” I was referring to  Xavier’s entire roster but 4 of 7 works as well.
