3.4 Around The Big East

Two games from yesterday, both important, although for different reasons.

#23 Pittsburgh 73, Villanova 64 (OT) - Holy crap, Pitt broke 70 points for the first time against someone who's not DePaul since January 8! Then again, they had to score SIXTEEN points in overtime to get there. Oh well. [reads AP recap on ESPN.com] Dante Taylor was a McDonald's All-American and made his first start in over a year on Pitt's Senior Night? Sheesh. What's Dixon doing over there? Anyway, giving up 16 points in overtime is no way for Villanova to do themselves any favors with the NCAA tournament selection committee. Go check in with Cardiac Hill and VU Hoops to find out more.

South Florida 83, DePaul 73 - ORDER HAS BEEN RESTORED TO THE UNIVERSE! Courtesy of every single Bulls starter scoring in double digits, South Florida defeated DePaul to put the Blue Demons back into last place in the Big East. USF turned a four point halftime lead into a nine point lead during the second half before coughing it all up and letting DePaul tie it up and even take a lead with eight minutes left. A 12-2 run by the Bulls, including 10 points just from Anthony Collins, put the game out of reach. Voodoo Five wrote a haiku for you.
