Could Chris Otule's ongoing improvement bring Marquette two wins this week? - Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

No particular theme to The Five this week, but there is definitely a strong Marquette presence.

Monday, February 11: #18/20 Marquette at #15/15 Georgetown (6pm Central, ESPN) - The only two teams in The Seven with winning records against the rest of the group face off. In fact, the only loss that either of these two have suffered to a team in The Seven was when Marquette beat Georgetown.

Tuesday, February 12: Villanova at Cincinnati (7pm Central, Big East Network) - Two teams that it's almost impossible to make anything out of right now. But Cincinnati needs a win after dropping out of the rankings because of two losses last week, and Villanova needs wins over anyone to try to put together an NCAA tournament worthy resume.

Wednesday, February 13: Providence at South Florida (8pm Central, ESPNU) - The Friars currently sit ahead of the pack of four teams that will play on the opening day of the Big East tournament, while the Bulls are in that group of four. You can be sure that Providence won't want to pass up an opportunity to stay where they are.

Thursday, February 14: St. John's at #12/13 Louisville (8pm Central, ESPN) - Two teams that wear red playing on Valentine's Day in prime time on ESPN. Gotta love the creative scheduling, right?

Saturday, February 16: #16/17 Pittsburgh at #18/20 Marquette (12pm Central, CBS) - When these two teams squared off in Pittsburgh, they both ended up playing the entire second half and one session of overtime without their starting point guards. What will have a bigger impact on this game: moving it to Milwaukee or having Tray Woodall and Junior Cadougan play the full 40 minutes?
