So this makes UConn 1-21 on the road against Top 25?

This has to go back several years and would cover some pretty bad UConn teams.

A team isn’t likely  to play that many ranked teams on the road in a given season unless its conference has several ranked teams.

Last night’s game was UConn’s second road game against a ranked team (the other was at Kansas) and they had 4 last year, all in conference.

Purdue has had 1 road game against a ranked team this year (Wisconsin) and had 2 last year.

The relevance of a stat like that for games this year is pretty low.

It goes back 10 years.   The last ranked team that UConn beat on the road was Memphis in 2014.     21 straight losses.

You're not wrong. Of course, in the scenario you present, we also have a chance to pick up two Q1 wins over Creighton.

Right, but for a team that’s chasing another, head to head games against the team they’re chasing presents an opportunity.

The bottom line is that a convincing win over UConn provides Creighton with a big boost, both objectively and to the extent any Committee members resort to an eye test.

Maybe MU can match that.

What did he say

SVP just gave him soft ball questions about MU, Kolek, the UConn loss, how good the Big East is, etc.  Good pub on the other network.  People were tuned in after the Baylor loss on the road (go figure) to a ranked BYU team.

Agree with all of that. It's a great opportunity for Marquette, too!

If we are their slump buster in a couple weeks, then we’ll just have to beat them on a Monday in April.

Excellent win for Blue Jays. Very helpful to MU’s cause.

Still waiting to hear your rationale for this post Herman.

This is an accurate summary. Shaka replied "Absolutely" to every SVP question. Hit all the usual Shaka talking points (culture, violence) but minimal discussion. Seemed very scripted. Shaka came off kind of bland, to tell the truth. Wasn't worth staying up the additional 30 minutes to see it.

1. Enhances The Stature and Quality of MU's previous win over The Blue Jays. Blue Jays have a strong  NET Ranking ;This  Excellent Win confirms they are actually a formidable Squad worthy of a high seed.

2. Enhances The Stature and Quality of Other Teams in The Big East who previously beat The Blue Jays. More Teams from Big East that Make Tournament =More money long term for MU=More Justification for high MU Seed

3. Preserves MU's ability to still Tie or Win The Big East( Long Shot)

4. Demonstrates that MU loss to U Conn was a garden variety road loss to a top ranked team, versus an Empire Has No Clothes scenario. Helps with our seeding and maintaining our Poll Ranking.

Spot on with #4 - Creighton made 14 threes and shot 55% from the field last nite, while we couldn’t hit the broad side of a barn last Saturday.  Make some threes and we’re fine.

Thanks. Creighton's home court win vs. our road loss accounts for a LOT, but even still....the contrast between the 2 UCONN games is embarrassing for Marquette. Creighton is in a much better position to run the table than Marquette and leave us in 3rd place for BET seeding. Let's hope that they do not create any problems for us in the Big Dance seeding. Beat UCONN in Milwaukee and we will still be in great shape, even if our trip to Omaha doesn't play out the way we hope it will,

Creighton was also taking and making mid-range shots <ducks>.

No need to duck. I couldn't help but notice that, too, and when Scheierman hit his down the stretch I actually chuckled a bit. Alexander, especially, is quite good at them - he hit a few against us. It would appear to be a difference in philosophy between Shaka/Nevada and McCormick.

I'm pretty unconcerned about the difference between #2 and #3 in the BET.  So we play Villanova or Xavier instead of Butler, big whoop.  We'd draw Creighton in the semis either way.

But the difference between #3 and #4 IS a big deal.  We want to avoid UConn until Saturday, because it means someone else might have a chance to knock them off first.  And the 4/5 matchup is between two rested teams versus playing someone who played the previous night.
 Right now we're only .5 games ahead of Seton Hall (10-4 vs 10-5)

Inside The Big East is in FS1 right now. The lead story: Pitino talking about how wonderful Soriano is. Taped a bit ago methinks.

In another segment, Oso is profiled.

Yeah, against the 1-14 powerhouse Georgetown.

Looking forward to the NY Post articles detailing the win, press conferences and player reactions.
