Big East Tournament Day 2

There are 3 major headlines coming into round 2 of The Big East tournament. 1: Kemba Walker looked really good yesterday, scoring 26 points as UConn cruised against Depaul. It did take a little while for UConn to kick it into gear, but they eventually did and won by 26. So the #9 seed Huskies will face #8 Georgetown. The Hoyas have been up and down, and are without Chris Wright. This means Austin Freeman will have to step up. But, I like Kemba Walker and UConn. The winner of this game faces # 1 seed Pittsburgh.
2: St, John's starts their Big East Tournament run. The odds are in their favor due to the fact that The Tournament is in MSG. The #5 seed Red Storm take on #13 seed Rutgers, who won an overtime thriller yesterday against Seton Hall. I like the Red Storm in this game and I do not think a tired Rutgers team can keep up. The winner platys #4 seed Syracuse.
3: The last big storyline is Villanova being knocked off by USF. This puts The Wildcats right on the bubble. #15 seed USF plays #7 Cincinati. Cincinati will have no problem with USF. The Bulls got lucky yesterday, and Villanova had no Corey Stokes. Bearcats will roll. The winner faces #2 seed Notre Dame.
The last game has #11 seed Marquette vs #6 West Virginia. I think this will be a good game. Marquette punched their ticket last night with a win over Providence. A win tonight would be nice to thought, but I like Bob Huggins and West Virginia. The winner of this game plays #3 Louisville.-Josh Neighbors
