Big East Big Five: Week 2

Thanksgiving week means there's lots of opportunity for great games. Downside: the best games are probably not going to be listed here.

I can't offer you previews of games that aren't officially on the list yet, so I'm stuck staring at the field for the Battle 4 Atlantis and wondering what's going to come out of that, much less any other tournament that the Big East is participating in this week.

Last Week: 3-2, no thanks to Notre Dame.

Overall: 3-2

Monday, November 19: Georgetown vs #11/13 UCLA (7pm Central, ESPN2) - You may have already heard about the NCAA declaring Shabazz Muhammad eligible beginning with this game. This Legends Classic match up was going to be on this list anyway, so Muhammad's debut is just a cherry on top.

Tuesday, November 20: DePaul vs Wichita State (6pm, CBS Sports Network) - The Shockers are the defending Missouri Valley champions, and this game as part of the presents them a great opportunity to help build their resume for postseason play.

Thursday, November 22: Pittsburgh vs #4/4 Michigan (8:30pm, ESPN2) - This NIT Tip Off game should give us a great picture of how much improved Pitt is over last season.

Thursday, November 22: #2/2 Louisville vs Northern Iowa (8:30pm, NBC Sports Network) - This is Louisville's first round game in the Battle 4 Atlantis, and it's not going to be a walk in the park to get past the Panthers to a second round game against the winner of Missouri-Stanford.

Friday, November 23: #22/20 Cincinnati vs Iowa State (5:30pm, CBS Sports Network) - Anybody ever heard of the Global Sports Classic before? Well, this game is a part of that.
