2. Which team wins tonight's game at Georgetown? (ESPN, 7 p.m. ET)

Gene Chizik says the time for celebrating a national title is over. We agree, but not because it's time to think about next football season. It's time to think about college hoops, including two Big East showdowns. Louisville visits Villanova on ESPN2 at 7 p.m. ET, but which teams wins between Pitt and Georgetown? Your Power 16?

If this was the final week of competition before football bowl season, any discussion of a fifth-place team in the Big East would include names like Meinke Car Care Bowl, PapaJohns.com Bowl or St. Petersburg Bowl. Good times.

Thankfully it's March, which means Rick Pitino's so-so Cardinals have as much as the better part of a week on one of the biggest stages in the sport to vault themselves into national prominence and championship sleeper status. Notre Dame didn't even want a low-level bowl bid by the time its football season wrapped up, but the Fighting Irish will be playing like crazy for the chance to be at least No. 64 when the NCAA tournament comes out.

What we're saying is the Big East tournament is a pretty good gig. And with games on ESPN 360, it beats the heck out of real work. The big dogs (sorry, UConn) don't play until tomorrow, but which team has the best shot to knock off Syracuse?

Timothy (Morgantown)

Assume for a moment that WVU wins the Big East tourney... If that were to happen, then what else would the Mountaineers need to happen in order to move up to a #1 seed in the Big Dance?

Andy Katz

It's an interesting scenario. But the problem is that save the Villanova win it's not like WVA finished without any hiccups, losing to Pitt and Connecticut. I know the Mountaineers beat Ohio State but they did lose to Purdue. WVA is also the No. 3 seed in the Big East. I don't see it. Full transcript

David (CT)

Joe, here's the question that has captivated the country. If Uconn wins 3 are they back in?

Joe Lunardi
Joe Lunardi

Well, David, it may have captivated one state. I think the rest of the country was tired of seeing UConn in my brackets. Three wins gets them back in the conversation. The rest is not knowable at this point. Full transcript
