Most people thought that DePaul would be the first to go down after finally playing their first game, but they beat Columbia 59-53 behind Mac Koshwal’s 19 points.
Who is going to be the first BIG EAST team to lose? 7 games will be played before the Friars next game on Friday night.
Cincinnati takes on Toleda at home tonight.
Pittsburgh and Villanova have relatively easy home match-ups on Thursday. Syracuse has their hands full in their road game against #12 California, and South Floria is, well South Florida. DePaul also has another game at 1PM on Friday at Northern Iowa, so there is a good chance someone will lose before the Friars tip off. Not like it matters or puts any additional pressure on PC to win, but you just don’t want to be the one to make the final out during a huge rally.
