The Big East, as it stands

Here’s what the way the Big East Tournament would look if it started today (before Wednesday night’s games):

USF is in position for a 4-seed and a double-bye, though its tough finish probably will knock it down a peg or two, but that’s still obviously a surprise.

UConn at No. 10, Pittsburgh at No. 13 and Villanova at No. 14 also raise some eyebrows (though not if you’ve watched them this season, I suppose).
