Some Big East tidbits:
Joe (Cuse): How badly will the loss to Clev. St. hurt the Orange come selection Sunday and how much noise can the Cuse make in March?
Andy Katz: Not at all if the Orange keep winning road games like Memphis.
Steiny (NYC): Which of the following is the best basketball conference? ACC, SEC, Big 12, Pac 10, Big Ten, or the Big East?
Andy Katz: The Big East still has four or five teams that could make it to Detroit. But the bottom of the league is dreadful. If I had to put it in an order today I would probably go Big East, ACC, Big 12, Big 10, Pac-10 and SEC.
chauncey (teaneck): What do you think of the state of the St. Johns basketball team?
Andy Katz: Irrelevant.
