2016 Big East Tournament Predictions
Here are my exclusive predictions for the 2016 Big East Tournament.
First Round - Wednesday, March 9th
8 Georgetown vs. 9 DePaul - FS1, 7:00
7 Marquette vs. 10 St. John's - FS1, 9:30
Quarterfinals - Thursday, March 10th
1 Villanova vs. 8 Georgetown - FS1, 12:00
4 Providence vs. 5 Butler - FS1, 2:30
2 Xavier vs. 7 Marquette - FS1, 7:00
3 Seton Hall vs. 6 Creighton - FS1, 9:30
Pick: Seton Hall
Semifinals - Friday, March 11th
1 Villanova vs. 5 Butler - FS1, 7:00
The Bulldogs have been competitive with the Wildcats both in Indianapolis and at Villanova but on a neutral floor, I just don't see it.
2 Xavier vs. 3 Seton Hall - FS1, 9:30
The Hall has taken a big leap this season and a win here will further that case. They did win in their last meeting with the Musketeers, at home, and they have looked good down the stretch.
Championship - Saturday, March 12th
1 Villanova vs. 3 Seton Hall - Fox, 5:30
These two have not played in two months so perhaps it may be difficult to glean a whole lot from those matchups. But on a neutral floor, the superior club will come out on top and that's the Wildcats.
