2.2.12 Big East Review

We had three Big East games last night and somehow, none of them qualify under the heading of Bizarro Big East.

  • #14/14 Georgetown 58, Connecticut 44. The Huskies shot 30% for the game while Hollis Thompson ZZZZZZZZZZZ. Marquette's only played 4 games this season that was as slow or slower than this game. Where was I? Oh, right. Thompson scored 18 points and pulled down 9 rebounds for the Hoyas. UConn falls to 4-5 in Big East play while Georgetown's 7-3 record has them alone in third place for the time being. I think it's safe to say that UConn's not going to recapture the magic of last season.
  • Providence 78, Rutgers 67. Vincent Council scored all 11 of his points and dished out 10 of his 14 assists in the first half to get the Friars out to a 40-26 halftime lead. While this is just Providence's second Big East win, it was in the Dunkin' Donuts Center, so we can't be surprised that they took down an erratic Scarlet Knights team.
  • St. John's 87, DePaul 81. The Blue Demons found a way to lose again, giving up an 11-0 run to throw away a double digit lead down to just 1 point at the half and then coughing up an 8 point lead to a 13-0 Red Storm run. D'Angelo Harrison's mean face scared DePaul into letting him score a game high 29 points, largely because of 7-11 three point shooting.
