As it stands, the Big East has a big dog and bunch of teams fighting to stay off the bubble. Villanova is the 1-seed and favorite. Butler is the 2-seed but have proven they can lose to any of their brethren.
After that, teams 3-6 are all desperate for one more win. Providence, Marquette, Seton Hall and Creighton to a lesser degree want one more win to solidify their place in the dance. Xavier, the 7-seed, also can't afford a loss on the first night to DePaul.
After Villanova, none of the teams are second weekend teams according to KenPom. That sounds about right. Think Butler, SHU and Marquette could make the 2nd weekend but need the right matchups.
The Pick: Villanova
