Big East

at a glance

Who's hot

Marquette: In what was supposed to be a down year, the Golden Eagles have jumped out to a 3-0 start. All wins have come against quality opponents, too. On Saturday, Marquette ousted Pitt in overtime 74-67.

Louisville: The nation's third-ranked team has opened the Big East schedule with wins over bottom-feeders Providence, Seton Hall and South Florida. The Cards stomped USF 64-38 on Saturday.

UConn: The Huskies are a Junior Coudagan 30-foot buzzer-beater away from being 3-0 in league play.

Who's not

Pittsburgh: A home loss versus Marquette Saturday dropped Pitt to 1-3. The Panthers played an extremely soft non-conference schedule, and it may be catching up to them.

South Florida: The Bulls have averaged 45 points in their three Big East defeats. Oof.

Georgetown: Although the Hoyas won Saturday, they were hammered Tuesday 73-45 by Pitt in the most lopsided game of the Big East schedule.

Stat of the week

In Pitt's victory over Georgetown Tuesday, only two players -- Panthers forward Talib Zanna and guard Tray Woodall -- reached double figures. Georgetown did not have a player in double digits. Additionally, the Hoyas had more turnovers (17) than field goals (13).
