Lunardi has 3 Big East teams with top seeds in his most recent field of 65. That's insane. But after this tournament is complete I assume it will drop to two Big East teams.

Hopefully an easy win for my Friars in their game tomorrow.

+1. You've gotta admit, there's a possibility for sequential upsets by DePaul considering their next opponent is Providence. I'm not saying it's a good chance, but better than if they were playing the #7 through #5 seeds.

It's more Dar Tucker at this point. Stula hitting 3-3 from 3pt out of nowhere doesn't help either, nor did our miserable job holding onto the ball in the first half.

It's true Tucker took it over after the 15 minute mark.

DePaul domination of the offensive glass has helped too, though with Koshwal in big foul trouble right now, it could be rough in the last few minutes.

We were up 8 on them a few minutes into the second half last time we played. In Louisville too. We're capable of playing with them, it's just a matter of which team shows up... if we play like we did for the last 10 minutes of today's game, we've got a good chance.

Well, it was the right move. After watching replays, he wasn't fouled. He got blocked a few times. And simply couldn't finish.

He's undersized, but they have no one else at this point. Everyone else is fouled out.

For those of you who haven't been watching....There are 7 players fouled out & 5 players sitting with 4 fouls.

If they can get this to a 6th OT we could conceivably see 10+ players fouling out of this game.

WV should have their way with either opponent tomorrow. These kids are going to have no legs left.

Onuaku, Jackson and Ongenaet won't be worn out, Onuaku played 39 minutes, but he's used to playing a lot. He played more against Georgetown. Jackson and Ongenaet didn't even reach 30 minutes. So the big guys will be fresh. Rautins looked fresh down the stretch even though he played 49 minutes.

Harris, Flynn and Devendorf are the guys who are going to have problems.

BTW Kris Joseph ****ing sucks. Hopefully he develops, but he adds nothing to the team this year.

And good for Justin Thomas. Plays 7 extremely meaningful minutes, at MSG, against the #4 team in the nation, and right now is on the front page of ESPN's basketball section.

Louisville, UConn and Pitt all should be #1 seeds I dont care if they play in the same conference. Obviously UNC will probably get the other, but there is no way that Memphis or Michigan St. should get it over anyone of these teams. If any of these teams played the same schedule as Memphis there's no doubt in my mind they'd lose one game tops. Plus 2 out 3 Memphis loses came to the hands of big east teams (SYR and MARQ). Michigan St. is a good team, but if they were in the Big East in my mind they'd be in the middle of the pack because the Big 10 sucks this year. Also I don't understand why everyone is saying Providence is out. They went 10-8 in the best conference in college basketball by far, beating Pitt and Syracuse, and they're not in?? None of the "bubble teams" in the SEC or Big XII should be considered over them because both of those conferences are down this year. Look at the Big XII; a mediocre at best Kansas team had the number 1 seed in their tournament, and the SEC is just awful...does it even have one ranked team? (maybe LSU). The Big East should definetly get 8 teams in IMO and 3 #1 seeds.

I'm exhausted right now because of that freaking game haha

I couldn't turn it off though. Incredible basketball by both teams. The one kid played 60 minutes!!

If I'm Jimmy I'd only play them 20-25 min tonight, you don't have anything else to prove.

Wow, I'm sorry but that's quite the Big East bias. Memphis lost to Syracuse early in the year when they clearly weren't the same team they are now. And as for Providence being out... they don't deserve to get in. They beat Syracuse and Pitt, but that's it. Their record versus RPI top 50 teams is 2-8. Meanwhile a team like Penn State is 6-8, I believe.

I don't think the Big East will get 3 number one seeds, but it's possible. Everyone seems to think that Pitt and UConn will still get #1 seeds. I think Pitt is a lock, but I'm not sure about UConn. I think if Louisville wins the Big East tourney that they should get a #1 seed over UConn.

I am in shock right now that the game went into 6 OTS, me and my dad had to watch the whole thing and could not go to bed. It was tough getting up this morning. What a game!!

Flynn and Dievendorf were great. Another amazing victory coming off a brutal game yesterday.

I liked how they said Flynn couldn't sleep last night so he called the coaches and watched film with them. :laugh2: He's a true competitor.

Cuse love OT

'Cuse loves the Big East Tourney.

One of my friends from freshman year is a big 'Cuse fan. Ever since I've been in college they've been wreaking havoc in the Big East Tourney.

Looks like Syracuse was worn down tonight by all the extra minutes we've played. Credit to Louisville for playing well though. They deserved the win since they fought back from a 1st half defecit.

Great job Flynn and Devendorf. You guys had a masterful tourney.

Louisville is my pick to win it all. They just looked dominant in the second half.

Same here.

They should be fine. You better worry about their momentum being killed by not playing until Thursday/Friday more, haha.
