CT’s Big East Bubble Watch

Big East Bubble Breakdown and NCAA Selection Predictions

The Big East has been given the best conference tag by almost every expert in college basketball. Today Craig handicaps the Bubble teams from the Big East. Most NCAA Hoops experts see eight safe teams for the NCAA tournament: UCONN, Pittsburgh, Villanova, Marquette, Louisville, West Virginia, Syracuse.On the bubble is not a great place to be as a coach but all of these teams have 2 games plus the BIG EAST conference tournament to impress the selection committee. Now let’s handicap the bubble chances of these teams.


Cincinnati: Key wins against UAB, UNLV, West Virginia, and Georgetown twice give this team a huge boost to there resume. Only key losses were to other bubble big east team Providence. Handicapping their chances really comes down to how well they play in the BIG East tournament. They need a minimum of one win to feel safe. RPI 58 SOS 21

Providence: Key wins Pittsburgh, Cincinnati twice, and Syracuse. Bad losses Northeastern, and Notre Dame. Magic number for them is 20 wins they need to get to that magic number. Most likely will come down to last game of season at Villanova next Saturday. Handicapping their chances of making the NCAA tournament is tough because other than the Pittsburgh win all the other wins are against teams that are on the bubble also. RPI 56 SOS 36

Georgetown: Key wins UCONN, Villanova, Syracuse, Providence, and Memphis. Bad Losses Seton Hall and Cincinnati twice. Most coaches would not want this to team in the big dance as they have proven they can beat anyone on a given day. The UCONN win was at UCONN and when UCONN was at full strength. Handicapping their chances is looking up they should win their last two games where they will be favored in both games. Two wins in the conference tournament would put them in almost for sure. The best numbers of any bubble team with there strength of schedule really helping them. RPI 58 SOS 1

Notre Dame: Key wins Providence, Louisville, Texas, and Georgetown. Bad losses St Johns and Cincinnati. The loss to UCONN has most likely ended any chance of this team getting an at large bid. When handicapping their chances to get in Craig sees a conference tournament championship as the only way they get in the dance. RPI 57 SOS 70

The Big East is the best conference this year without a doubt. The bubble teams would definitely be in this year if they were in any other conference. Craig’s handicapping knowledge helps him pick that the BIG EAST Conference is getting 10 bids this year. Both Cincinnati, and Georgetown are primed to get 3-4 more wins and earn their bid into the NCAA Tournament.

  1. Despite getting beat pretty bad last night by Villanova, I still like Providence as the best bet out of the rest of the Big East bubble teams. Obviously a strong performance in the Big East Tournament will greatly improve their chances. Should be an interesting week.
