Big East Tournament bracket update

Syracuse or Notre Dame? Thanks, but we're gonna hold out for something better.



--Louisville, Connecticut and Pittsburgh are the only three teams with a shot at the top seed. UConn earns it with a win over Pitt on Saturday. Louisville needs to beat Seton Hall on Wednesday, West Virginia on Saturday and have the Panthers knock off the Huskies. And Pitt needs to beat Marquette and Connecticut, and have the Cardinals lose both of their two games.

--If Marquette loses either of its games this week and Villanova defeats Providence, then the Wildcats will earn the fourth double-bye by virtue of the second two-way tie tiebreaker rule.

--Providence owns a half-game advantage over West Virginia and Syracuse for the No. 6 seed. The three all own 1-1 records against one another, thus the result of the Mountaineers' regular season finale against Louisville would have a large impact on the potential tiebreaker.

--Seton Hall owns the head-to-head tiebreaker with Georgetown for the No. 11 seed.

--Depaul must win its final two games and have Rutgers lose its last two in order to avoid finishing in last.
