Note: The BEast Conference

The Big East Conference is absolutely dominating college basketball right now. With an overall record of 103-21, seven undefeated teams, six ranked teams and four top-ten teams, the Big East is the class of college basketball right now. The depth is the most amazing part as Cincinatti, Louisville, Providence, Marquette, West Virginia, and St. Johns are unranked teams that will be competing for spots in the NCAA tournament this season. The conference has had success in recent years, having three #1 seeds two years ago, and sending 8 of 16 teams to the NCAA tournament last season.

Conference games will begin in three weeks, when UConn battles Pittsburgh on 12/27. The Big East Tournament, which starts March 8th, 2011 at Madison Square Garden, will be very interesting, as many teams will have the ability to win the automatic bid to the NCAA tournament. Not only will many teams compete for the Big East Title, I would not be shocked to see even more teams make the NCAA tournament, than last year.
