Big East Basketball: Syracuse No. 2 In Both Polls, Marquette, Georgetown, Louisville Also Ranked

After a 2-0 week with wins at Cincinnati and a controversial win at home against West Virginia, Syracuse solidified its position in the USA Today Coaches Poll and the Associated Press polls, moving up to No. 2 in both polls. The Orange actually received two first-place votes in the AP Poll. Georgetown, which suffered a loss at Pittsburgh, dropped from the top 10 down to No. 14 in both polls. Marquette, which beat South Florida and rallied to beat Villanova, moved up from 17/18 in last week's polls to No. 15 in both polls. Louisville hung on to the No. 25 position in the Coaches Poll after a 2-0 week that featured wins over Villanova and at Seton Hall. The Cardinals were not ranked in the Coaches Poll.

West Virginia, which suffered a blowout loss at St. John's and then lost late on a controversial call at Syracuse, had been closing in on a national ranking but did not reach the top 25. Connecticut, after losing to Tennessee and then at home to Notre Dame, dropped out of both polls. Notre Dame also received votes in both polls as well.
