In the Big East this season, teams play 18 conference games, in which they face 12 teams once and 3 teams twice. The list below shows who plays whom twice. In the interest of brevity, I am including those Big East teams with a realistic shot at the NCAA Tournament.
Marquette - DePaul, Georgetown, Villanova
UConn - Notre Dame, Pittsburgh, Seton Hall
Louisville - Notre Dame, West Virginia, South Florida
Pittsburgh - UConn, West Virginia, DePaul
Providence - Cincinnati, Rutgers, Villanova
Villanova - Marquette, Providence, Syracuse
Syracuse - Villanova, Georgetown, Rutgers
West Virginia - Louisville, Pittsburgh, South Florida
Cincinnati - Providence, Georgetown, St. John's
Georgetown - Marquette, Syracuse, Cincinnati
Notre Dame - UConn, Louisville, St. John's
Does this negatively alter your perception of Marquette, Providence and Cincinnati? Or, does it garner sympathy for the likes of Notre Dame or West Virginia in the case that either finishes 8-10 in conference?
