NCAA tourney time for seven of the Big East’s finest. And what a tournament it may turn out to be for the conference. The first round is looking very promising for the magnificent seven, as the Big East looks to own the dance. So…let’s get right to it. The first round picks…
(1) UConn vs. (16)
Prediction: 89-55 Pitt
(3) Villanova vs. (14) American: The ‘Cats have an outstanding bracket. They match-up well against many of the teams, and beat the one-seed (Pitt) earlier this season. It starts with a game against American. Nova’s guard play should bury American early, and coast from there.
Prediction: 78-58 Villanova
