Big East Title Scenarios ...
***If UConn beats Pittsburgh and Louisville loses later that night (9 p.m. start! Ugh!!!) at West Virginia, the Huskies are Big East champs and, naturally, top seed for the tourney. Louisville would be the No. 2 seed and Pitt the No. 3.
***If UConn beats Pitt and Louisville beats WVU, the Huskies and Cardinals are co-champs but UConn gets the top seed by virtue of its 68-51 victory on Feb. 2 at Freedom Hall. Pitt would be the No. 3 seed.
***If Pitt beats UConn and Louisville loses to WVU, the three teams share the regular-season title but Pitt gets the top seed, Louisville the No. 2 seed and UConn the No. 3 seed for the tourny. Why? In their "mini-conference," Pitt will have gone 2-1, Louisville 1-1 and UConn 1-2.
***If Pitt beats UConn and Louisville beats WVU, Louisville is the regular-season champ, Pitt gets the No. 2 seed and UConn the third seed.
So, UConn will either get the No. 1 or No. 3 seed for the Big East tourney. The Huskies will begin play in the quartefinals on Thursday, March 12, either at noon (if they're the No. 1 seed) or at about 9 p.m. (if they're No. 3).
