Big East Basketball Power Rankings

1. Villanova: 6-0, 17-1 (LWR: 1)
Man, ‘Nova can fill it up.  Their four highly-recruited freshmen have stepped right in and perfectly blended with their veterans as they can go 10, even 11 deep if needed.  For the record, the ‘Cats only play Syracuse once this season, at the Carrier Dome on February 27th.

Up Next: at St. John’s (Sat), vs. Notre Dame (Wed)

2. Syracuse: 5-1, 18-1 (LWR: 2)
Very impressive performance from the ‘Cuse this week winning at West Virginia and at Georgetown within three days of each other.  Andy Rautins deserves more credit than he gets.  He is much more than a sharpshooter from the outside.  His defense has been outstanding and he can also handle the rock as serve as a facilitator.

Up Next: vs. Marquette (Sat), vs. Georgetown (Mon)
