Big East basketball was off to a wonderful start this season. The member teams were undefeated through the first week of play. The streak continued through Sunday and Monday of this week with twelve more wins running the total record to 28-0.

Then, West Virginia played their second game of the season. The Mountaineers escaped their opener against Oral Roberts with a 78-71 win. Playing at home against Kent State today, West Virginia fell 70-60. The 36-game non-conference home win streak of the Mountaineers also ended with that loss.

Last night, eight Big East teams went to 2-0 on the season: #4 UConn, #5 Syracuse, #19 Marquette, Georgetown, South Florida, Providence, DePaul and Notre Dame.

Cincinnati, Seton Hall, Rutgers and Villanova are 1-0. St. John's is 3-0.

There are four more Big East games today: Syracuse vs. Albany; Cincinnati vs. Jacksonville St; Villanova vs. LaSalle; Rutgers vs. Miami. Let's get started on a new streak tonight, shall we?
