Big East Round-Up

Reminder: conference play starts (gulp) next week. Moment of truth has arrived, ready or not.

The new polls are out. UConn and Pitt hang on to their No. 2 and 3 rankings, respectively. The Huskies are coming off a big win against No. 7 Gonzaga Saturday, 88-83 in OT. A.J. Price (pictured left) led the way with 24 points and 10 assists.

dropped to No. 19 in both polls.

Pitt remained unbeaten by knocking off Florida State yesterday, 56-48.

No. 14 Syracuse improved to 11-1 Saturday by knocking off Memphis, 72-65. Jonny Flynn dropped 24 and threw 6 dimes for the Orange.

The 2008 Big East/SEC Invitational ended with a 2-2 split after Cincinnati beat Mississippi State and the Cards took care of Mississippi on Thursday. Marquette and South Florida took Ls last Tuesday.

Georgetown (8-1) has moved up to No. 9 in the coaches' poll after an eleven-point win against Mt. Saint Mary’s this Saturday.

No surprise here, but Notre Dame’s Luke Harangody leads the conference in scoring, averaging 22.6 per. He’s followed by Seton Hall’s Jeremy Hazell (22.2), Marquette’s Wesley Matthews (20.4), and Pitt’s Sam Young (20.1).

That's all I got. Off to buy crap and wrap it. Humbug.
