That was the bubble bursting for two BIG EAST teams. I said yesterday that both Cincinnati and Georgetown had a low chance of losing — you know, with both teams needing wins desperately. Well, they both lost, and now need to do some serious damage (moreso Georgetown) in the BIG EAST Tournament to even be considered for an AT-Large Bid.
The pieces are falling into place for the Friars. As we all have known all week, winning against Nova on Thursday punches the ticket. However, after seeing all these bubble teams falter in the BIG EAST, a 10-8 record is starting to look pretty damn awesome too.
Cincinnati 59, USF 70
Georgetown’s bubble burst in heartbreaking fashion. They led 45-30 with 10 minutes left in the game, and allowed the Johnnies to come back and force OT.

In BET seeding news, Syracuse easily took care of Rutgers at the Carrier dome. We now need Marquette to beat them on Saturday.
