They still need to get 2 wins in tournament (means trip to finals of BE tournament), if Providence loses to Creighton, then Xavier, ST. Johns, Providence will be 3/4/5 in tournament. NOt sure of order. One of those teams will make the tournament, 4/5 game may be playin, but I think Xaiver gets in with 1 win, and St. JOhns and Providence need 2.
Go Johnnies ! 20 wins heading into Big east Tournament.
Exactly right. This team started the big east season 0-5 and they finished the regular season with 20 wins...they are all healthy and have a payback game vs Xavier at MSG this Thursday at 2:30pm. Steve Lavin has done a great job this year. Anyone else going on Thurs afternoon???
2. The Probable - Xavier is in... Even if they get blown off the floor by Marquette, because the St. Johns/Providence loser will not pass Xavier regardless.
3. The only bubble teams (IMO), St. Johns/Providence. Whoever wins that game needs to with their Semi-Final matchup with Villanova. If Villanova wins, then I think neither team gets in without winning the tournament.
