NCAA Basketball: Villanova at Seton Hall Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports

Our latest edition of Power Rankings are out!

In this week’s edition, 14 pollsters ranked the Big East teams 1-10.

This week’s edition featured the contributions of Anonymous Eagle.


10. DePaul Blue Demons

(Score: 10.00; Last Week: 10; Highest Vote: 10; Lowest Vote: 10)

“Another week in the cellar for the Blue Demons. Quite a shame.” - Robert O’Neill

“You get the sense that this point, you hope they just don’t get embarrassed.” - Chris Novak

9. Georgetown Hoyas

(Score: 8.44; Last Week: 9; Highest Vote: 6; Lowest Vote: 9)

“Losing to Creighton wasn’t exactly good for Georgetown’s already razor-thin margin for error. They might be auto-bid or bust at this point.” - Robert O’Neill

“And to think there looked to be promise a few weeks ago.” - Chris Novak

8. St. John’s Red Storm

(Score: 7.88; Last Week: 7; Highest Vote: 7; Lowest Vote: 9)

“St. John’s got bludgeoned by Butler, but also scored a Hinkle Fieldhouse opponent-season high 86 points. Take the good with the bad? Silver linings?” - Robert O’Neill

“By the way that St. John’s has played the past few weeks, their alternating win-loss pattern means a win tonight vs. Marquette.” - Chris Novak

7. Providence Friars

(Score: 7.00; Last Week: 8; Highest Vote: 6; Lowest Vote: 8)

“The Friars are back at seven where they belong. Things are right in the world.” - Robert O’Neill

“Is Providence gonna make a run? Seems within range all of the sudden if they wind up beating Creighton.” - Chris Novak

6. Seton Hall Pirates (1)

(Score: 5.75; Last Week: T-5; First Place Votes: 1; Lowest Vote: 9)

“Not gut-check time yet for Seton Hall. But that comes soon.” - Chris Novak

5. Xavier Musketeers

(Score: 5.13; Last Week: 3; Highest Vote: 4; Lowest Vote: 6)

“It’s not Xavier’s fault that Edmond Sumner and Trevon Bluiett are hurt, but you have to play the hand you’re dealt.” - Robert O’Neill

“Sometimes, teams get healthy at the right time. Xavier is getting unhealthy at the wrong time.” - Chris Novak

4. Marquette Golden Eagles

(Score: 4.69; Last Week: 5; Highest Vote: 4; Lowest Vote: 6)

“Marquette started the must-win portion of their schedule with a win. They’ll have another chance against St. John’s tonight.” - Robert O’Neill

“They’re hanging by a bit of a thread, but Marquette is still within range for an at-large bid. Let’s see how their final four games shake out.” - Chris Novak

3. Creighton Bluejays

(Score: 2.56; Last Week: 2; Highest Vote: 2; Lowest Vote: 4)

“Marcus Foster’s huge game on Saturday is an awesome sign for the Bluejays going forward.” - Robert O’Neill

“Agree with my colleague, and they’ll need Foster the rest of the way if they want to make noise in March.” - Chris Novak

2. Butler Bulldogs

(Score: 2.50; Last Week: 4; Highest Vote: 2; Lowest Vote: 3)

“Nothing like a week of home games against St. John’s and DePaul to work the kinks out.” - Robert O’Neill

“After losing 3 of 4, Butler has responded by winning 3 of 4. That game against Villanova on Wednesday is gonna be fun.” - Chris Novak

1. Villanova Wildcats (15)

(Score: 1.06; Last Week: 1; Highest Vote: 1; Lowest Vote: 2)

“The Wildcats are good, in case you forgot.” - Robert O’Neill

“Remember when Kris Jenkins was slumping? Lol.” - Chris Novak
