Big East Big Five: Week Ten

How great is Russ's shooting sleeve with feathers on it? - Andy Lyons

We have a new number one team in the country according to the polls and they're in the Big East, so we'll celebrate in the only way we know how: Featuring both of their games in this week's Big Five

Before we get to this week's games, let's stop and check in on the lone Big East game from yesterday.

Providence went in to The Rock and came out with a 67-55 win over Seton Hall. You could argue that the game was over when the Friars jumped out to a 22-5 lead in the first 10 minutes because of 12 Pirates turnovers, but SHU was able to get the lead down to just 8 with 9:25 left. Bryce Cotton got two three pointers on Vincent Council assists two minutes apart to end any hope of a rally. South Orange Juice has more for you on that game here.

On to this week's games!

Monday, January 14: #1/1 Louisville at Connecticut (6pm Central, ESPN) - The Cardinals test their brand new number one ranking and undefeated Big East record on Kevin Ollie's stairs.

Wednesday, January 16: Pittsburgh at Villanova (6pm Central, ESPNU) - Not the best way to try to rebound from a home OT loss, but the Panthers don't have a choice. Jamie Dixon might be making some phone calls to Los Angeles if Villanova manages to get their third Big East win here.

Thursday, January 17: South Florida at Rutgers (8pm Central, ESPN2) - The Bulls are the only team without a win in Big East play so far this season. In fact, six teams have only one win, and believe it or not, Rutgers (2-2) is not one of them.

Saturday, January 19: #6/6 Syracuse at #1/1 Louisville (3pm Central, ESPN) - Regardless of how tonight's game turns out, the Orange are off until Saturday, so they will stay unbeaten until this trip to the (snicker) KFC YUM! Center.

Saturday, January 19: #25/RV Marquette at RV/#24 Cincinnati (6pm Central, ESPNU) - Seems like a good time to mention that the Bearcats have lost three straight games at home. I can't say I remember ever seeing a game between two teams in the poll situations that these two are in.
